How Snoring Happens

When the flow of air from your mouth or nose to the lungs makes the tissues of the airway vibrate, that’s when snoring occurs and it happens when you are at rest or sleeping.

Snoring happens when there is a blockage (obstruction) or narrowing in the nose, mouth, or throat (airway).

At times, you can snore so loud that it keeps your partner awake, and it might also affect you getting a restful sleep. Your sleep quality may be affected, and it can eventually result in daytime sleepiness.

You might suffer a risk of high blood pressure if your snoring affects your sleep and nothing is being done about it. Snoring may lead to upper respiratory resistance syndrome or Sleep Apnea – which is a serious condition if left untreated.
