Why Do We Snore

Snoring :

Up to 40 % of the population in industrialized countries snore. The decreasing muscle tone during the sleep causes a narrowing of the upper respiratory tract. This narrowing accelerates the respiratory airflow, thereby various structures in the area of the upper respiratory tract start to vibrate and cause the snoring noise. So snoring is a mechanical process that can be counteracted mechanically. Here the dental therapy comes into action.
Light or primary snoring do not have consequences on health whereas the rhonchopathy, the abnormal snoring, does.
