What Factors Cause Snoring?
Oftentimes, snoring occurs because the soft tissues of the throat and mouth are more relaxed, which causes one’s air passage to become smaller. With less room in the airway, individuals are not able to breathe properly as the air moves closer to the soft tissues causing them to vibrate, which results in snoring. However, there are about four main factors that are also known to cause snoring including:
- Alcohol consumption
- Sleep aides or Sedatives
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
