Approximately one third of adults snore in their sleep. Sometimes snoring can be a sign of a more serious health-related condition.
Snoring occurs when the airway narrows or becomes partially obstructed due to the relaxation of the upper mouth, throat and tongue during sleep. Snoring can be a sign of sleep apnea, nasal obstruction or obesity.
An ENT specialist can diagnose and help relieve snoring as well as identify the possibility of a more serious condition.
