Causes and Solutions with Anti-Snoring Devices
Snoring occurs because the airways of the head and neck relax while you sleep and as this alters the air pressure, it can lead to vibrations of the soft palate and other oral tissues. Factors that increase the likelihood of snoring include obesity, being older, drinking alcohol, smoking, allergies, and having a cold.
If lifestyle changes don’t help, we can provide custom-made anti-snoring devices to alter the position of the jaw and prevent narrowing of the airways. When the walls of the throat collapse and cause a blockage of the airway for ten seconds or more, it is known as sleep apnoea. Anti-snoring devices may help mild forms of this condition by maintaining an open airway.
