Stop Snoring and Start Sleeping Soundly!

Have you experienced that awkward moment when someone tells you that you snore? Or maybe you’ve spent countless nights next to your partner sawing logs and googled “how to stop someone from snoring” or “how to stop snoring immediately!”

You’ll find that plenty of people snore. In fact, 40% of women and 57% of men snore! But is snoring just an irritating quirk or is it affecting your health?

Here’s what you need to know about the truth behind snoring, how to stop snoring, and how to start sleeping soundly.

What causes snoring?

Snoring occurs when air isn’t able to flow freely through your airway as you breathe in and out during sleep. This causes your upper airway tissues to vibrate, creating that dreaded snoring sound!

Although everyone snores occasionally, whether it’s due to congestion, exhaustion, certain medications, or your sleeping position, sometimes there’s more to the cause of snoring.

If your jaw bones aren’t in proper alignment due to a common orthodontic condition, this can cause undue stress on your jaw and neck. This misalignment may be the cause of your waking up during the night!

When your airway is restricted enough that you aren’t receiving enough oxygen, your brain sends out an SOS signal and wakes you up. If you’re waking up multiple times in a night, you may have sleep apnea, a serious sleep disorder.

Sleep apnea snoring causes random lapses in breathing while you sleep, and when left untreated, can lead to high blood pressure and stroke.

One effective snoring treatment method is orthodontic treatment! Yes, braces, clear aligners and a specialized orthodontic appliance called the MAD are some of the best snoring solutions!
