Snoring Causes

During sleep, muscles and soft tissues in the throat and mouth relax, shrinking the airway. This increases the velocity of airflow during breathing. As the velocity of required air is increased, soft tissues like the soft palate and uvula vibrate. The vibrations of these tissues result in “noisy breathing” or snoring.

Surgical techniques used to remove respiration- impairing structures have shown only moder- ate success rates (20 to 40 percent).

For the majority of snorers, however, the most afford- able, noninvasive, comfortable and effective snoring solution remains a dentist-prescribed snore prevention device, such as Silent Nite sl.
