What Causes Snoring?
The sound you make while breathing during sleeping is called snoring. Structures inside the throat at the roof of the back of the mouth create a vibration which is where the snoring sound is created.
The relaxation of the muscles in the body allows these structures to vibrate as air flows through them.
The major source of your sound could be your soft palate and the lack of smooth air flow causes vibration and snoring.
The uvula is part of the soft palate and occupies the area in the back of your throat. Shortening of the uvula can help decrease snoring as a long uvula can make it worse.
