What Causes Snoring & Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA)?

Certain surgical ENT procedures are claimable under Medisave, and the exact amount would depend on the complexity of the procedure. For other cases, please speak to our friendly clinic staff about using your insurance plan or Integrated Shield Plan.

  • Excessive bulkiness of throat tissues. The throat can be congested and narrowed if the tonsils become inflamed and enlarged or if there are structural abnormalities such as a long uvula or bulky tongue at the back of the throat. This congestion leads to snoring.
  • Excessive bulkiness of nose tissues. Snoring can also be caused by a blocked nose, resulting in breathing from the mouth. This may cause excessive breathing effort, which results in the collapse of soft tissues in the throat. A blocked nose may result from enlarged inferior turbinates, a deviated nasal septum or sinusitis.
  • Floppy soft tissues in the throat and weak tongue muscles. People with these conditions may result in their tongues falling backwards into the airway and their throat tissues at the side being drawn in during sleep, blocking the airway. This results in vibration of the tissues during breathing, leading to snoring.
  • Small or receding jaw. People with small or receding jaw bones are at an increased risk of snoring due to a smaller airway space behind their tongue.
