What Causes Snoring?

What Causes Snoring?

Snoring and Sleep Apnea

You snore when the flow of air from your mouth or nose to your lungs makes the tissues of the airway vibrate. This usually is caused by a blockage, obstruction or narrowing in the nose, mouth, or throat.

What Causes Snoring

When you fall asleep, the soft tissue and muscles in your mouth and throat relax, causing your airway to shrink.If the airway becomes too small the soft palate and uvula begin to vibrate with each inhale and exhale.  These vibrations are the cause of snoring and many sleepless nights.  Here again, Dr. Streit can provide solutions to snoring and sleep related disorders.  Please contact Dr. Streit and schedule your personalized sleep consultation.
