What Is Snoring
When you breathe normally, air passes through the nose and past the flexible tissues in the back of the throat, including the soft palate, uvula, and tongue. Muscles hold your air passageway open when you’re awake. During sleep, these muscles relax, and the lower jaw can move back slightly.
Snoring occurs when soft tissues of the upper airway collapse onto themselves and vibrate against each other as air attempts to move through them. This produces the sound we know as snoring.
Large tonsils, a long soft palate, a large tongue, the uvula, and excess fat deposits in the throat contribute to airway narrowing and snoring. Usually, the more narrow an air passageway is, the louder or more habitual the snoring sounds are.
Over 40% of adults experience this problem and want to know how to stop snoring near Loveland OH. While snoring may seem like a mere annoyance, it can result in excessive daytime sleepiness and relationship issues.
Snoring may even be an indication of a more serious condition known as obstructive sleep apnea. The only way to know if your condition is merely snoring or sleep apnea is through overnight sleep evaluation, either at a sleep center or with a home sleep test.
While sleep apnea requires the help of a physician, there are a few things you may be able to do to reduce simple cases of snoring. Simple at-home remedies for snoring include:
- Avoid sleeping on your back.
- Nasal strips (such as Breathe Rite).
- Nasal sprays (such as Simply Saline or Flonase).
- Avoid eating or drinking alcohol three hours before bedtime.
When these home remedies are not enough, we can offer an effective snoring solution: an oral appliance. This appliance helps keep your airways open to reduce the likelihood that air vibrates the tissues of your airways. This keeps you from producing a snoring sound throughout the night.
