What Causes Snoring?
Snoring is often a symptom of decreased airway space. During sleep, muscles and soft tissue in the throat and mouth relax, making the breathing airway smaller and increasing the velocity of the air. This results in soft tissue vibration, referred to as snoring.
Surgical techniques to remove or alter these vibrating soft tissues have shown only moderate success. For a majority of snorers, an affordable, non-invasive, comfortable, and effective solution is a snoring appliance.
