OSA or Obstructive Sleep Apnea is one of the most common breathing disorders while sleeping. This happens when the tissue in the back of the throat collapse, blocks the airway and stops air from reaching the lungs. This results in heavy snoring.
Snoring is the sound that is produced on the upper side of the throat due to air blockage. Although you breathe in the air, it gets blocked in the passage and is unable to reach the lungs. The sound is the result of the vibration created by the tissue in the back of the throat. While you are sleeping, the sound waves can come from both your mouth and nose.
The new oral appliance therapy for snoring can help get rid of those sleepless nights of your partner.
Why you snore?
Snoring can result from:
- Drinking excessive alcohol.
- Smoking blocks the nasal passage.
- Nasal & throat deformities
- An overdose of medicines like sleeping pills and cold medicines.
