Snoring occurs when air travels through the relaxed tissues of the soft palate, tongue, and throat, triggering a vibration. Our team of skilled, experienced ENT specialists at The Barranco Clinic can get to the root of your snoring and determine if any underlying medical conditions are to blame. We can then create a personalized treatment plan to improve your sleep and boost your overall quality of life.

Treatment Options for Snoring

At The Barranco Clinic, our team of sleep doctors can perform in-depth diagnostic testing to determine the cause of your snoring. The condition can be due to sleep apnea or other ENT disorders. Treatment can be performed using the CPAP device (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure,) which increases airflow in the throat to prevent tissue over-relaxation.

Sleep Evaluation

What is Snoring?

Both children and adults of all ages snore, although the condition can be more pronounced in older individuals. Snoring happens when the small muscles in the tongue, the roof of the mouth, and the throat collapse, blocking airflow. As the air struggles to travel through the region, a vibration occurs that resonates as a loud, forceful sound. Snoring is sometimes a sign of sleep apnea, an ailment in which the patient’s breathing starts and stops during the night, sometimes waking them up.
