Snoring Treatment

Under normal circumstances, breathing during sleep occurs automatically and silently with the passage of air through the nose to the lungs. The sound of snoring is produced when the air flows past relaxed tissues in your throat, causing rattling and vibration.

What factors make snoring more likely?
Factors such as obesity, having a cold, alcohol consumption, the anatomy of your mouth, large tonsils, chronic nasal congestion, a deviated septum, the use of sedative medications, nasal polyps, a small jaw and later stages of pregnancy can contribute to a higher risk of snoring. Snoring can vary in severity and frequency.

How is snoring treated?
Snoring in the absence of obstructive sleep apnea is not considered a physical health risk but you may want to consider treating it if your bed partner is complaining about your snoring. Your dentist may recommend lifestyle changes such as maintaining a healthy weight, limiting alcohol and sedatives, avoiding sleeping on your back, reducing nasal congestion, and mandibular advancement devices.

If you would like to learn more about which snoring treatment is right for you, book a consultation with our partner sleep dentistry specialist office, Worcester Sleep Dentistry.
