What Causes Snoring?
Snoring is generally a result of breathing problems caused by obstructions in the airways of the nose and/or throat. After you fall asleep, the muscles in the roof of your mouth (soft palate), throat and tongue relax. As you go into a deep sleep, these looser tissues can block your airway.
Many factors can contribute to enlarged or obstructive oral tissues that cause snoring, including the anatomy of your nose and mouth, certain illnesses, a high body mass index (BMI) and lifestyle factors like drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes.
NightLase can tighten the throat and mouth tissues to help alleviate snoring.
