What causes snoring?

Snoring is a common condition that occurs when the flow of air through the mouth and nose is partially blocked during sleep. It happens due to various factors, such as the relaxation of the muscles in the throat and tongue, which can narrow the airway. When we breathe in, the narrowed airway causes the surrounding tissues to vibrate, resulting in the sound of snoring. Other factors that can contribute to snoring include obesity, alcohol consumption, smoking, nasal congestion, and sleeping position. Snoring can disrupt sleep quality for both the snorer and their partner, leading to daytime fatigue and other health issues. If you or your loved one snores frequently and it affects your quality of life, it is advisable to consult a healthcare professional for a proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment options.
