What snoring have to do with dental healthSnoring is annoying and can affect your oral health. Snoring can be caused by several factors and this can mean that your general well-being is compromised. Our dental experts will guide you on the connection between oral health to snoring.

Causes of Snoring

When asleep the tissue on the roof of the mouth, tongue, and throat are relaxed. The tissues relax too much and they block the airway and this is when you sleep on your back. When air flows through the throat soft tissues begin to vibrate and cause you to snore. When the airway is narrow there is forceful airflow hence snoring. For you to stop snoring the dentist can offer a treatment plan to help you sleep well at night.

Why do I snore

Snoring occurs in both children and adults and this can be because of various reasons. You can snore when the airway is narrow due to the thick soft palate and large tonsils. Obesity can cause you to snore, chronic nasal congestion will cause you to snore. The doctor will recommend that you come up with ways to shed some weight such as engaging in exercises. This way you are likely to stop snoring since the airway will be open when you are asleep.

Snoring and bad breath

When you snore you are likely to produce bad breath this is because when breathing you open the mouth and the mouth becomes dry. When the mouth becomes dry no protective layer is there to provide moisture in the mouth hence bringing about bad breath, more buildup of bacteria, infections, and tooth decay. Our dental team will ensure that you know the reason why you are snoring and come up with the best treatment plan for you. We are dedicated to ensuring that you have a good night's sleep.
