What is snoring?

Snoring is a noise made by the vibration of tissue in the upper airway, i.e., your mouth, nose and the back of your throat.


Try this: Tilt your head back, open your mouth and pretend that you're gargling. Feel that flutter at the back of your throat? That's your soft palate, which is believed to be a significant contributor for the 80% or more of people who can't stop snoring.


One in four people have a problem with chronic snoring and can't stop snoring on their own. If you're sharing a household with a snorer, you know that if they can't stop snoring, it will always be your problem too.

On average, the bed partner of a snorer loses at least an hour of sleep every night. Because the partner's sleep is interrupted so frequently, it isn't deep and restful. As a result, they can be irritable, resentful, even unsafe at the wheel while driving. Sleep deprivation can also compromise the immune system and lead to low energy, decreased productivity and muddled thinking. Chronic snoring can even be a sign of a more serious health problem, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
