Why do we snore & Cures for Snoring?
Sometimes when we sleep, the muscles that hold the airway open relax and partially collapse, obstructing the flow of air slightly. The air passing through the partially collapsed airway can cause a vibrating sound known as snoring.

"In 1998 I started my dental trust with Dr. Kodish. His confidence, his kindness, and his results speak more than any words I can write here. Dr. Perez gave me excellent service on my recent visit. I am confident he will continue the excellent dental practice that I have had for years."- J.C. / Google / Aug 25, 2020

"If I could give more stars to Dr Kodish I would. My story starts with being in pain for 16 months, countless appointments with every dental specialist you can think of, a root canal (which the Endodontist now says was unnecessary), medications that none of them worked and I thought I was losing my mind and frustrated. Then after a teeth cleaning with my past dentist, he noticed me rubbing my face and randomly mentioned “that’s your Masseter”. I researched what that was and discovered that I checked all the boxes for TMD and there began my search for a TMJ/TMD specialist and found Dr Kodish, made an appointment and 6 weeks later I am pain free. Dr Kodish is very kind, compassionate and professional. He was very patient listening to my long journey to find relief for my pain and did a full evaluation to identify my issues and it turned out I had many and not one dental professional identified any of them. Dr Kodish is brilliant and I highly recommend KP Dental. They are a full service dental practice and I will not go anywhere else."- N.R. / Google / Mar 11, 2021
Who suffers from Snoring?
Approximately 44% of men and 28% of women between the ages of 30-60 suffer from habitual snoring*. It has also been shown that people with excess body weight, a long soft palate, an enlarged uvula, and large tonsils may be more prone to snoring than others.
How Serious is Snoring?
Snoring alone is not necessarily detrimental to your health. It may, however, be the sign of a more serious condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). While not everyone who snores suffers from sleep apnea, SomnoMed suggests that if you have been heard to gasp for breath or have sudden spells of drowsiness during the day, then you should obtain a referral to a qualified specialist.
