Snoring Can Affect The Snorer’s Quality Of Life, And Also His Bed Partner’s
The Sound Is Generated By A Vibration Of The Soft Tissues At The Back Of The Tongue
Snoring can affect the quality of sleep of the snorer, and also his or her bed partners’. According to a study, people slept an entire hour longer each night after their spouses stopped snoring. More good-quality sleep improves overall health. Snoring sound is generated by the vibration of the soft tissue at the back of the tongue, which causes a partial obstruction as the air forces itself through it. When the airway closes entirely, it leads to sleep apnea, which has serious consequences, like an increase in the risk of high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack, obesity, and diabetes. Sleep apnea can be diagnosed by staying overnight at a sleep clinic. If the diagnosis is positive, the most common treatment is a CPAP machine, It comes with a mask that forces air in the throat and lungs, but it can be uncomfortable for some people, so not everybody can tolerate it. The alternative is a mouthpiece that will force the jaw to the front, opening the airway. Additional details click here.
