What Causes Snoring?

4th Nov 2014

Snoring is caused by turbulent passages of air traveling over any structure in the snorer's mouth and throat such as the tongue, tonsils, or adenoids. This abnormal airflow causes vibrations in the uvula and the soft palate within the throat. These dissonant vibrations result in the harsh and bothersome sound snoring is notorious for. The key to resolving snoring is to first identify the obstruction and then seek a specific solution.
