Does Snoring Affect Your Dental Health?Snoring can harm your oral health in addition to being annoying. Numerous causes might contribute to snoring, which can impair your overall health. You'll receive advice from our dental specialists on the relationship between snoring and mouth health.

What are the Causes of Snoring?


The tissues of the tongue, throat, and mouth roof are relaxed while you're sleeping. When you sleep on your back, the tissues relax too much and restrict the airway. You snore because your throat's soft tissues start to vibrate when air passes through them. Because of the powerful airflow caused by the constricted airway, snoring occurs.

Why do I snore?


Both children and adults snore, and there are many different causes for this. Because of the thick soft palate and huge tonsils, snoring is possible when the airway is restricted. Snoring can be brought on by obesity or persistent nasal congestion.

How Snoring Relates to Bad Breath


Due to you opening your mouth to breathe when you snore, your mouth becomes dry and you are more prone to have bad breath. When the mouth becomes dry, there is no barrier to maintain moisture, which leads to foul breath, an increase in bacterial growth, infections, and tooth decay. Call us today to schedule an appointment and talk to our dental staff who will make sure you understand the cause of your snoring and develop the ideal course of action for you.
