We’ve all heard the jokes about snoring, but the truth is its no laughing matter, especially if you are the one who is being kept up at night. The truth is, if you’re the one doing the snoring, you probably aren’t getting a good night’s rest either and this can affect your health, your mood and even your relationships.

Snoring is the result of obstructed airflow when a person goes to sleep and air can’t move easily and freely through your nose and throat. The result of this is that the surrounding tissues vibrate, producing the familiar and often loud snoring sound.

There are several factors that can cause a person to snore. One common cause of snoring is being overweight and high blood pressure can also be a cause of snoring. Sleep studies have shown that smoking and drinking alcohol can contribute to snoring as well as eating habits including dairy products and spicy food. Sometimes even small changes in your lifestyle can help reduce snoring. If a person was to lose weight especially if it is just around your neck or throat, it would help to reduce or possibly end your snoring.

Often, the cause of a person’s snoring is not as easy to treat as just losing weight and requires one of the many common treatments available including an oral appliance to be worn at night, laser snoring treatment which is carried out at Dr Amer’s Dental Clinic in Dubai or they may require CPAP therapy or a CPAP machine.

Another common cause of snoring is sleep apnea, a common sleep order condition in which the person doing the snoring has regular lapses of breathing throughout the night.


What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep Apnea is a common and potentially dangerous sleep disorder where the person has one or more pauses in breathing/shallow breaths while sleeping. The pause can last from a few seconds to a few minutes and can even occur thirty (30) times or more in an hour. Normal breathing resumes once again, often accompanied by a loud snort or choking sound.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is the most common. In this condition, the airway becomes blocked during sleep which is the root cause of shallow breaking and/or pauses. As you breathe, any air that squeezes past the blockage causes the snore. While it’s common in people who are overweight, a person’s physical anatomy can also contribute to the cause of snoring.

For example, small children who have enlarged tonsil tissues in their throats or someone with a low soft palate causing a narrowed airway and an elongated uvula (which is the pink stalactite at the back of your throat) are more prone to snoring due to vibration when they are asleep. The position of your tongue can also affect snoring.

It’s Chronic

Sleep Apnea, or snoring as we all know it, not only causes the quality of sleep and social problems, it is actually a chronic condition that can cause side effects such as brain oxygen deprivation, an increase in blood pressure, heart disease, seizures and even Type Two (II) Diabetes. This is a condition that often goes undiagnosed for most, often moving out of deep sleep which results in poor quality sleep, daytime sleepiness and grogginess the following morning.

Doctors usually can’t detect sleep apnea during routine office visits. Also, no blood test can help diagnose the condition. Most people who have sleep apnea don’t know they have it because it only occurs during sleep. A family member or partner might be the first to notice signs of sleep apnea.


There are several ways in which you can work on reducing snoring or to prevent snoring.

A reduction in snoring after the first session is common and expected. After the snoring treatments are completed, 85 percent of patients report that their snoring has been helped significantly.

Snoring affects more people than you might realize. Research shows that over 60% of people snore and snoring is more common in men than women, Snoring also gets worse as we age, due to tissue laxity. Some people complain of waking themselves up with their own snoring leading to everyday fatigue and exhaustion simply due to not getting a good solid night’s sleep.

You won’t be surprised to hear that snoring can put a strain on marriage since the spouse cannot get a good night’s sleep and regularly sleeps in another room.

If you find yourself increasingly tired despite feeling like you have had the normal 6 to 8 hours of sleep, snoring might be affecting your sleep.
