What causes snoring?

Snoring is often the result of obstructed airflow through the passages at the back of the mouth and nose. This obstruction can be due to various common snoring factors including, but not limited to:

The anatomy of your mouth and sinuses (Learn more: Does a deviated septum cause snoring?)



Sinus infections

When the flow of air is partially blocked, it causes the surrounding tissues to vibrate, leading to the sound of snoring. 

Over time, chronic snoring can lead to more significant health concerns, such as sleep apnea, which affects not only the quality of your sleep but also your overall health. By addressing sinus issues with procedures like balloon sinuplasty, you can improve airflow and reduce or eliminate snoring, leading to better sleep and healthier living.

How Kaplan Sinus Relief delivers Houston’s best snoring treatment

As the pioneer of balloon sinuplasty for snoring in Houston, Dr. Kaplan offers several innovations to ensure your balloon sinuplasty experience is as safe, effective, and relaxing as possible.


Is snoring harmful to your health?

While snoring might seem like a harmless, albeit annoying, nighttime nuisance, it can be an indicator of underlying health issues including sinus infections. Chronic sinusitis symptoms can lead to persistent snoring due to the swelling of sinus passages, which limits airflow and promotes vibration of throat tissues.

This restricted airflow can exacerbate snoring and, if left unchecked, sinus infection and snoring symptoms can contribute to a cycle of poor sleep quality and daytime fatigue. Addressing sinus problems through treatments such as balloon sinuplasty can significantly alleviate snoring, enhancing both breathing patterns and overall well-being.

Will balloon sinuplasty help with snoring?

Balloon sinuplasty is emerging as an effective solution among snoring remedies for those suffering from sleep disturbances caused by sinus conditions. This minimally invasive procedure aims to open the sinus pathways, thus improving airflow and reducing the tissues' tendency to vibrate — the main cause behind the snoring sound.

Unlike more traditional snoring remedies that might only address the symptoms temporarily, balloon sinuplasty targets the root cause related to sinus issues, offering a long-term solution for sufferers. It's ideal for individuals looking for a less invasive option compared to traditional sinus surgery, providing a quicker recovery time and less postoperative discomfort, thereby enhancing the quality of sleep and life.
