What Makes People Snore?

When you sleep, air passes through your nose and mouth, passing through numerous soft tissues on its way to the lungs. As the air takes its course, it may cause those soft tissues to vibrate.

That vibration produces sound, which is what we know as snoring.


How the Marconi Dentistry Group Can Help

Snoring rarely takes place when airways are clear. Snoring usually happens when there is something in the way of your air’s pathway, forcing the lungs to work harder in order to pull air through.

At the Marconi Dentistry Group, we can help by identifying the problem in what is it that is blocking your airway and aid in providing a solution.
There are different solutions depending on the problem. Some patients may simply need an oral appliance that keeps the soft tissue from blocking the airway, while in other cases, patients may need a more extensive treatment or maybe even the use of orthodontics.

It all depends on the situation, a situation the Sacramento Dental Specialists at the Marconi Dentistry Group can help solve.
