Snoring in Flower Mound, TX
Did you know that snoring can be a symptom of a serious sleep disorder? While your bed partner may be losing sleep due to the noise, it is you that is really suffering as your body spends the night fighting to breathe.
The sound of snoring is created as air is passing through an obstructed airway. Obstructions in airways can be the outcome of several factors. Nasal deformities (deviated septum), poor muscle tone in the throat and nose (muscle decreases with age), nasal polyps, inflamed nasal passages, 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) are just some of the reasons an obstruction may occur.
