What is snoring?


Snoring is a sound produced during sleep by the vibration of the walls of the pharynx. It is a sign of partial airway obstruction by soft tissues such as the tongue, the soft palate, the uvula and the tonsils. When the width of the airway decreases, the tissues around it palpate as the air passes through, producing the characteristic snoring sound.

There are several factors that can cause a person to snore. However, the occurrence of snoring is a very important symptom for health professionals involved in the treatment of sleep apnea. It shows that the airway is collapsing and the person has a significantly higher risk of developing obstructive sleep apnea.


Approximately 40% of men and 24% of women snore on a regular basis.


Louder snorers are more likely to suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)

How Can I Stop Snoring?

It’s best to consult with a sleep doctor to determine the severity of your snoring. If you only have the occasional mild snoring but feel refreshed upon waking, and it does not affect your day-to-day functioning, you can try some of these methods on your own:

  • Avoid tranquilizers, antihistamines and sleeping pills before bed
  • Lose weight
  • Establish regular sleep patterns
  • Avoid alcohol for a minimum of four hours before bed
  • Do not eat for three hours before going to bed
  • Sleep on your side instead of on your back

When to talk to your doctor?


You should consult a specialist if you snore and notice any of the following symptoms:

  • Headaches in the morning
  • Excessive sleepiness during the day
  • Recent weight gain
  • Awakening during the night feeling confused
  • Waking up in the morning not feeling rested
  • Changes in your levels of concentration, attention or memory
  • Any pauses in breathing that occurs while you are sleeping (your partner may be more aware of this than you are)

If your doctor finds that your snoring is not mild and innocent but hides a more serious problem, then he or she may recommend an intraoral splint to treat snoring and sleep apnea. This will reduce the intensity of snoring and improve the quality of your sleep.
