Causes of Snoring
The most common cause of snoring is an obstructed airway. The closer the soft palate gets to the tongue, the smaller the airway and the greater potential for snoring. When air is not able to freely move through your nose and mouth, the tissues vibrate and make audible sounds. Extreme cases of snoring are called obstructive sleep apnea. Factors such as; age, nasal and sinus problems, weight, alcohol, smoking, allergies and sleep position can impact your snoring.
Advanced Non-Surgical Snoring Treatment
The Fotona NightLase laser procedure is research proven to dramatically lessen the intensity and duration of snoring. The treatment involves heating the tissue in the back of the patient’s throat to open the distance between the soft palate and tongue which in turn helps to stop snoring. The procedure is FDA approved, safe, painless and effective.
