HOW SNORING IS PRODUCED

When the muscles relax during sleep, the lower jaw with its tongue drops back and narrows the throat. When breathing the air consequently flows through the throat with larger pressure and this makes the muscles and soft tissues flutter and vibrate.

WHY SNORING IS A PROBLEM

While the partner feels disturbed night after night, the person concerned often does not notice his snoring. However, he consequently suffers from a dry mouth, hoarseness or a sore throat. In addition, breathing interruptions of more than 10 seconds (apnea) can lead to a lack of oxygen supply to the brain. The consequences are that the person concerned wakes up and that makes a relaxing deep sleep impossible.

HOW WE CAN HELP YOU

Today there are dental splints that keep the lower jaw, the tongue and the soft palate from falling into the troat. Thus, the throat remains free and the lungs are supplied with sufficient air again. This is pleasantly quiet.
