What is the best solution to stop snoring?
If it was that simple, there wouldn’t be seemingly endless products and medications to help you sleep better and snore less. Sleep physicians are one of the most educated people in medicine and for good reason! Sleep and snoring cannot be cured with a one-size-fits-all solution.
When we talk about snoring we have to understand what is causing it. Snoring is caused by vibrations created by air passing over soft tissues inside the nose and mouth. These vibrations cause the soft palate to vibrate, causing vibration of the surrounding structures including the tongue, uvula, pharynx, larynx, trachea, and bronchi. When these structures vibrate, they create noise that sounds of snoring.
When someone snores, they may not be getting the oxygen their body needs. This means that there is a possibility that they are not breathing! Now, that is scary. Because of the blockage of air through the throat and down the airway, the body is put into a state of stress which can have very damaging effects on your overall health!
