Snoring Can Be More than Annoying

Snoring is the loud sound which occurs during sleep. You snore when the flow of air as you breathe makes the tissues in the back of your throat vibrate. The sound most often occurs as you breathe in air and can come through the nose, mouth of a combination of both.

Snoring can be a nuisance to your partner or others nearby. You may even wake yourself up! Light snoring may not disrupt your overall sleep quality, how ever, heavy snoring may be associated with Obstructive Sleep Apnea, a serious disorder which may cause a risk of stroke, diabetes, heart disease, and many other health problems.
