Snoring factors

Sleeping on one’s back. In this position, gravity withdraws both jaw and tongue downwards.  This causes a mouth opening, a tongue lowering toward airways and a shrinkage of air path. 60% of snorers snore by the fact of lying on their back.

Difficulties with nasal breathing. Breathing through your nose is the best way to admit air in lungs, compared to breathing between your lips. Allergies, pregnancy, the cold, can rustle blood vessels in the nasal area leading to a nasal congestion or a lack of air. The result is a mouth opening and due to that an increased resistance to air intake.

Obesity. Excessive weight, too much fat in the vicinity of neck and throat induce an extension or an increased pressure on tissues surrounding air passage. Airways are consequently shrinked. Obesity is a significant factor to snoring ability.

Extension of soft tissues in throat area. Snoring is much more widespread among people having a big tongue, a long soft palate, a big uvula or large tonsils. Once these tissues are extended, there could be a decrease of airway passages. Extended tonsils and adenoids are the first causes of snoring among children.

A small lower jaw. People having a small chin together with a small lower jaw are snorers because there is less space deep in their throat for soft tissues and for the tongue. This reduction in space decreases the air passage and thus causes snoring.    

Some drugs and alcohol  consumption. Some drugs (in particular some tranquillizers and antihistamines) and alcohol can  induce a greater relaxation of soft tissues and muscles in throat. The result is a shrinked air passage while sleeping, and thus an increased snoring.

Some drugs and alcohol  consumption. These irritant factors can induce an increased congestion of nasal walls and mucous membranes in throat area, leading to snoring.
