Hear Sam's Sleep Apnea Story

"My wife noticed that I stopped breathing during the night. I went for a sleep study 20 years ago and it took me 15 years to do anything about it. I tried CPAP but it was too much maintenance. The oral appliance seemed like an elegant solution. Being an engineer I appreciate simplicity. I regret waiting so long to get something done. I now wake up refreshed; I can sit through meetings and don't doze while I drive."

Factors that Affect Snoring

Are you wondering how to stop snoring? Here are some common factors that can cause snoring:

Sleeping on your back - When you sleep on your back, gravity pulls the jaw and tongue down and back. This can cause your mouth to open and your tongue to drop back into the airway, narrowing the air passage.
Difficulty with nasal breathing - If you have difficulty breathing through your nose due to allergies, a deviated septum, pregnancy, or health reasons, you may end up snoring.
Obesity - Overweight and obese individuals have excess fat deposits in the neck and throat which can place pressure on the tissues that surround the air passage. This restricts air flow.
Enlarged soft tissues in the throat - If you have a large tongue or soft palate, large tonsils, or a large uvula, you may be at risk for snoring.
Medications and alcohol - Certain medications and alcohol can relax the soft tissue and muscles in the throat, which causes narrowing of the air passage during sleep.
Cigarette smoke and irritants - Any type of irritant can cause nasal congestion and mucous development in the throat, which in turn often leads to an increased incidence of snoring.
