Thanks for the D2D. Yes. Snoring is due to an anatomical floppiness of the soft tissue and vibration in the upper airway. Studies have shown that most snoring originates from the vibration of the soft palate, other areas include the side walls of the mouth, the tongue base and / or epiglottis.
Snoring can be aggravated by a blocked nose, as this results in mouth breathing and mouth breathing worsens snoring.
You would need a sleep specialist to examine your upper airway with a flexible Nasoendoscope. This will enable the sleep specialist to determine where exactly is the area that vibrates during your Snoring.
The key to a successful snoring surgery is selecting the correct surgical procedure to perform for that individual patient (as every patient is different).
