Thank you for visiting health24.com.
It is possible that you are suffering from sleep apnoea syndrome where soft tissue falls to the back of the throat and causes you to stop breathing for a couple of seconds. This is when you wake up with a loud snoar. I suggest that you consult an ear nose and throat specialist, in order to have a full examination, as well as a sleep apnoea test.
I am not sure how your mouth brace influences your condition.
