What Causes Snoring while Sleeping?

Snoring is a harsh sound that arises due to the passage of air across the tissues within the throat region. During sleep, these tissues may become relaxed and as air makes its way past them, vibrations take place which can be heard in the form of snoring. The sound of snoring can be potentially disturbing, especially if you have to hear it every night as you sleep with your partner. Although a benign condition, snoring can be a silent indicator of some serious medical conditions. In this blog, we shall dive into some harmful effects of snoring and then explore the efficacy of various medical aids which can help curb the problem.

Internal Snoring Aids: AIRMAX and ClipAir

You might have seen somebody wearing an external nasal strip to compensate for their poor nasal breathing. In a similar fashion, an internal snoring aid is a device which helps dilate the narrowed nasal passages and thus, can help relieve  unwanted snoring. AIRMAX and ClipAir are such anti-snoring devices that have revolutionized the treatment approach towards chronic snoring.

How do Nasal Dilators Work?

These devices consist of a pair of small-sized wings that arise from a central clip. The clip fits onto the cartilaginous nasal septum while the two wings serve to fit against the nasal wall in both nostrils. In this manner, the narrowest portion of the nasal cavity can be expanded. With a comparatively wider air passageway, an individual can find it pretty comfortable to breathe more effectively through their nose. Nasal dilators are made of a soft, odourless and medically certified plastic (S.E.B.S). that widens the narrowest part of the nose without being visible on the outside of the nose.
