What Is Snoring?
Before you get tips, the infographic explains snoring. Snoring happens when you are asleep and make sounds during breathing. It comes in three grades. Grade one of snoring occurs infrequently. The noises made aren’t loud, and the person snoring isn’t going to experience health problems.
In grade two snoring, the person is snoring two or three times a week. The snorers will suffer from breathing problems. For grade three snoring, the person is snoring every night, and it is so loud that people can hear it outside the bedroom. You could have sleep apnea, a serious health condition that could cause other problems.
Types of Snorers
You would think that snoring comes from the mouth, but that isn’t true. It could be caused by the nose, the mouth, the palate, the tongue or a combination.
Nose snorers have blocked nasal passages; mouth snorers sleep with their mouth open; tongue-based snorers are afflicted with their tongues moving to obstruct their airways, and palatal snorers have uvula vibrations and a soft palate. When you have a combination, you could experience several of these traits.
