Snoring is a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide.

It is caused by the vibration of the soft tissue in the back of the throat, which can occur when the airway is partially blocked. There are several factors that can contribute to snoring, including:

Obesity:

Excess weight, particularly around the neck, can put pressure on the airway and make it more likely to collapse.

Alcohol and sedatives:

These substances can relax the muscles in the airway, making it more likely to collapse.

Anatomy:

Some people are more likely to snore due to the shape of their airway or the position of their jaw.

Smoking:

Smoking can irritate the airway, making it more likely to collapse.

Nasal congestion:

A stuffy nose can make it harder to breathe through the nose, which can lead to snoring.
