Snoring is caused by the narrowing and vibration in the throat. About 50% of the humans may snore from time to time. More than 20% have also breathing stops during the night, called sleep apnea. The development of snoring to sleep apnea is a gradual process and most people are not aware of it since the breathing stops occur during sleep.
For many years snoring was only considered an annoying social problem. Now it is known that snoring may be a warning sign for a serious health condition affecting the health, sexual life, and performance at work.
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) and Oral Appliances are the most important treatment options for snoring and sleep apnea. However limitations in compliance and efficiency leave most patients without treatment.
