If your snoring results from a more serious cause, a cure may be more complex – but there are solutions. If you can uncover the cause of your snoring, you should be able to find a cure that is right for you.
Where does the snore sound come from?
Snoring is caused by a narrowing of your airway, either from poor sleep posture or abnormalities of the soft tissues in your throat. A narrow airway gets in the way of smooth breathing and creates the sound of snoring.
People who snore often have too much throat and nasal tissue, or “floppy” tissue that is more prone to vibrate. The position of the tongue can also get in the way of smooth breathing.
If you snore:
•With your mouth closed: a problem with the tongue is probably the culprit
•With your mouth open: your snoring is likely related to the tissues in your throat
•Only on your back: your snoring is probably mild – improved sleep habits and lifestyle changes may be effective cures
•In all sleep positions: your snoring is more severe and may require a more comprehensive treatment.
