Why Do People Snore ?

 Narrow Airway

  • Snoring is the sound produced by vibrating structures of the upper airway, typically during inhalation. Snoring is not an illness, but it is a symptom. Half of people who snore loudly have obstructive sleep apnea
  • Snoring happens when you can’t move air freely through your nose and mouth during sleep. Often caused by the 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.
