Has your partner or loved one complained about your snoring? You’re not alone – anywhere from 30 to 50 percent of people snore at some point or another in their life. However, sometimes snoring can become a significant disturbance. If you feel as though the entire neighborhood can hear you snoring at night, then it is time for a change.

Snoring is common, and it happens when there is some kind of obstruction in the airway while you are asleep. This can be due to the tongue as well as other soft tissues that are present in the mouth. When these tissues rub against each other, the vibration creates a noise – snoring.
Snoring may occur with short pauses in between each noise, which could indicate the possibility of sleep apnea. With sleep apnea, the patient’s breathing may stop for several moments. This can damage the body, causing cardiovascular issues and other problems. It can also cause patients to experience fatigue and sleepiness during the day.
