Breathe Better While You Sleep
Sleep apnea can lead to difficulty sleeping and other issues with your health. It occurs when the soft tissue at the back of your throat close off the airway so air cannot flow into your lungs properly. This reduces the oxygen reaching your brain and greatly disrupts your sleep.
Snoring is a more common problem that also disrupts your sleep and can lead to bigger health troubles. This harsh sound happens when the tissue in the back of the roof of your mouth vibrates against the back of your throat while you sleep. Parts of your mouth relax during sleep, narrowing the airway in your throat and thus creating the vibration that leads to snoring.
