What Causes Snoring?

Snoring is typically caused when breathing is partially obstructed while sleeping.

During sleep, your body attempts to bypass the obstruction, which causes audible strain; not enough to wake you up in most cases, but enough to be heard by others.

Not only is snoring obnoxious and bothersome to others, but it can be a sign of an underlying airway restriction and even Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA); a dangerous condition that could lead to serious health problems.

For patients experiencing issues with snoring in Denver and Colorado Springs, Breathe Correct has the tools to diagnose and permanently treat the underlying conditions that cause this troublesome ailment with a snoring treatment. If you have considered or tried home remedies to stop your snoring (or even if you swear you don’t snore!), the experts at Breathe Correct can help solve your problem and help everyone in the house sleep a little better.

What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

OSA often is characterized by loud snoring followed by periods of silence when breathing stops or nearly stops. This pattern of breathing pauses may be repeated many times during the night which results in poor sleep quality and may lower your blood oxygen levels, resulting in a variety of health conditions. See our Sleep Apnea Treatment page for more information on OSA.

Normal breathing should be silent and through the nose. Our focus is on understanding the underlying cause of the snoring and treating it so the patient can experience proper, quiet breathing and better sleep. Our doctor will assess the cause and severity of your snoring and recommend a treatment based on your specific needs.

The Benefits of Breathing Easier

Normal, silent breathing is not just an aesthetic improvement. Maintaining an unobstructed airflow can also have a positive impact on your health. In addition to making life easier on anyone who sleeps within earshot, the benefits of a snoring treatment include the following:

Normal breathing reduces the chances of high blood pressure. Stress from poor sleep and lack of oxygen can have long-lasting impacts on your circulatory system if left untreated.

Snoring can lead to an increased risk of a heart attack; particularly if you have an untreated case of obstructive sleep apnea. OSA can lower the oxygen levels in your blood, causing the heart to work harder to keep the body oxygenated. This can also lead to strokes and atrial fibrillation (fluttering of the heart).

Snoring (particularly caused by OSA) can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes. Correcting snoring issues can be a very effective treatment in preventing or reducing the impact of diabetes.

Correcting a snoring issue can also help you lose weight. It can reduce cravings for carbs or sweets and help you process food more efficiently.

Correcting snoring can help patients suffering from asthma. Depending on the nature of the condition, it may also lead to fewer nighttime attacks.

There are anecdotal reports that patients who correct their snoring or sleep apnea also have improvements in their acid reflux. While this has not been scientifically verified, many patients report an improvement to their airways following snoring correction (including a reduction in the severity of acid reflux).

How Do We Diagnose?

At Breathe Correct in Colorado Springs and Denver snoring treatment begins with a diagnosis through a detailed examination and review of symptoms by a specially trained dentist. Below is a summary of the key steps in the diagnostic process.

Medical History and Symptom Analysis

Denver and Colorado Springs snoring relief patients complete a medical history. Our dentists want to know about their symptoms, their sleep patterns, and their breathing. This information contains valuable insights that help us better understand the issues that could be causing these snoring symptoms.

3D X-ray of the Upper Airway and Jaws

Our doctors use low radiation digital 3D X-Rays (Cone Beam Volumetric Tomography, or CBVT) to examine the nasal airway, jawbones, and other upper airway structures beginning at the lower neck. These images can help us identify any structural issues that may cause snoring, and possible treatment options to fix them.

Head and Neck Exam

Following the X-Rays, we perform a comprehensive exam of the head, neck, nasal passage, temporomandibular joint (TMJ), and mouth, including a series of digital photographs. This helps verify the X-Rays and lets us identify issues in the flesh.

Home Sleep Test

You have the option to take a Home Sleep Test (HST). These tests are easy to administer, yet very detailed in their results. If our board-certified sleep physician sees positive signs that your snoring may be caused by obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the sleep physician will write a prescription confirming the existence of OSA with treatment recommendations.
