MANAGEMENT OF SNORING

 

 

Snoring results from the relaxation of the uvula and soft palate.

As the  uvula and the soft palate relax, they partially block the airway, resulting in irregular airflow and vibrations.

Causes:

Snoring is usually thought to occur due to any one or more of the following causes:

1. Throat weakness

2. Obesity

3. Obstruction in the nasal passageway

4. Obstructive sleep apnea

5. Sleep deprivation

6. Relaxants such as alcohol or other drugs relaxing throat muscles

7. Sleeping on the back

8. Mispositioned jaw
