Snoring happens when air flows through your throat when you breathe in your sleep. Just about everyone snores occasionally, and it’s usually not something to worry about. But if you regularly snore at night, it can disrupt the quality of your sleep, lead to daytime fatigue and increase health problems.
Common causes of snoring:
Being overweight or out of shape.
The way you’re built. A narrow throat, a cleft palate, enlarged adenoids, and other physical attributes
Nasal and sinus problems.
Alcohol, smoking, and medications.
Here are some remedies commonly used to treat snoring and its various causes:
Lose weight if you are overweight.
Sleep on your side.
Raise up the head of your bed.
Use nasal strips or an external nasal dilator.
Treat chronic allergies.
Correct structural problems in your nose.
Limit or avoid alcohol before bed and stop smoking.
Use an oral appliance.
Use a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine.
In this case, the patient has been using anti-snoring oral device for a long time and it's been very successful. Anti-snoring oral appliances (MADs - mandibular advancement devices) are custom-made from dentists. There are some universal designed ones known as anti-snoring mouthpieces and mouthguards. We recommend custom-made anti-snoring devices because they fit better, more comfortable and adjustable and less complications.
