Are you a snorer? Do you wake your partner and/or children up when you sleep? The Royal Oak Dental team may have a dental solution to help you minimize or eliminate this troublesome and potentially dangerous habit.
Causes of Snoring
You’re probably aware that the SNORING NOISE is made when the tissues of the throat vibrate as you breathe in and out. But let’s take a closer look at the factors behind the noise.
- Age is one factor in some SNORING cases. Throat muscles can weaken with age, gradually increasing obstruction.
- Recurring allergy problems can induce SNORING with nasal blockages.
- Genetic or physical challenges, such as a deviated septum, misaligned jaw, or soft palate dysfunction can lead to snoring.
- Lifestyle causes may be the culprit. You may simply need to change a habit or your sleeping position.
Snoring not only results in poor sleep, fatigue and low energy, but has also been linked to HEART DISEASE, stroke, high blood pressure, and hypertension. Snoring is also a major indicator for Obstructive Sleep Apnea, a potentially dangerous condition in which people stop breathing for short periods throughout the night.
