Snoring is caused by vibration of soft tissue and muscles that constitute the upper airways. People who snore often have too much throat and nasal tissue or “floppy” tissue that is more prone to vibrate. The position of your tongue can also get in the way of smooth breathing.
Snoring could indicate sleep apnea, a potentially life-threatening condition that requires medical attention. Sleep apnea is a breathing obstruction, causing the sleeper to keep waking up to begin breathing again. Normal snoring does not interfere with the quality of your sleep as much as sleep apnea.
It is important to get good sleep without snoring. It is important not only for your health but also for your partner’s health!
