What is Snoring?

While snoring may seem like just a minor nuisance, it can actually be a symptom of a more serious sleep disorder. Not only is your bed partner getting lesser quality sleep, but you are also suffering as your body is expending energy fighting to continue to breathe.

Snoring is the sound that occurs as air is passing through an obstructed airway. Obstructions can be the result of several factors including nasal deformities (deviated septum), nasal polyps, inflamed nasal passages, poor muscle tone in the throat and nose (muscle decreases with age), enlarged tonsils, long soft palate (the soft tissue at the back of the roof of the mouth), and a long uvula (dangling tissue at back of throat).

There is a 70% overlap between Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea in children.

This is a staggering number and the reason the American Association of Pediatrics ‘Practice Parameter’ states that all children should be screened for snoring. An affirmative response for snoring should be followed by a more detailed evaluation.

I used to wake up constantly with headaches and occasionally had migraines. Dr. Krish recommended a night appliance for me to wear at night to prevent me from grinding my teeth.
