During sleep, muscles and soft tissues in the throat and mouth relax, shrinking the airway. This increases the velocity of airflow during breathing. As the velocity of required air is increased, soft tissues like the soft palate and uvula vibrate. The vibrations of these tissues result in "noisy breathing" or snoring.
For the majority of snorers, the most affordable, non-invasive, comfortable, effective snoring solution remains a dentist-prescribed snoring preventative device such as Silent Nite® sl.
