People snore when the tissues in the back of their throats obstruct their airway. The obstruction creates a vibration as air moves in and out of the individual’s airway.
Snoring can put a real strain on even the best of relationships. It is even a common reason for divorce. When snoring causes one partner to move to another room entirely, it puts a strain on intimacy and creates negative feelings.
Snoring treatment is not a one-size-fits-all practice. In order to find out how to best treat your snoring symptoms, we need to do an evaluation and find out some things about your medical history.
Factors of Snoring
Some factors increase the likelihood of snoring. First, males snore more than females. Second, obese, and overweight people suffer from snoring especially if they have an increased neck circumference that adds additional pressure to their airway. Third, your anatomy may contribute to snoring because of the tissues located at the back of your throat. Fourth, having a deformed nasal septum contributes to snoring. Fifth, the use of alcohol increases snoring. Sixth, the use of sleeping pills or prescription sedatives may relax the throat more than usual, causing snoring.
