What is Snoring?
When you breathe in through your mouth while asleep, air flows over the tissues in your upper palate and your throat. When your airways are narrowed due to the muscles relaxing during sleep, this results in a more turbulent airflow over these tissues, causing them to vibrate and creating that characteristic snoring sound. Anyone can snore and it can be more common after drinking alcohol, when taking certain medications or after a viral illness. Snoring can often be treated with a custom made dental appliance, please contact One Smile for further information.
