What is Snoring?
Snoring is a noise generated by vibration of the tissues in the throat in and around the back of the tongue when breathing in and out.
Usually this part of the throat is held open by several muscles but when sleeping, these muscles relax and the air does not flow smoothly through the reduced air passages. Snoring is found in all age groups but generally increases as we age.
