Snoring Solutions

Snoring is more than just a nuisance. It can disrupt your sleep cycle and can make you feel tired and sick during the day. We have a variety of treatment methods to help stop snoring at the source, allowing you and your family to sleep soundly through the night.

If you chronically snore, odds are you and the people around you, are probably losing a lot of sleep. According to the National Sleep Foundation, over 90 million Americans snore and many more are affected by it.

What is snoring?

Snoring is the noise created by vibrations in your throat when your airway is obstructed. Snoring can occur nightly, or sporadically. It typically affects males more than females and is more common in individuals who are overweight. Snoring also tends to increase as people get older. Snoring is more than just an annoying sound. It can greatly affect your quality of sleep and rest and can be a sign of a more serious health condition.

What are the effects of snoring?

When your sleep schedule is affected by you or another person’s snoring, you will not get the necessary rest to function properly, which can lead to a variety of health problems. Daytime dysfunction and heart disease are believed to be two of the most common conditions related to snoring. Snoring can also be a sign of a more serious condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnea, where the airway is obstructed and people stop breathing in their sleep.

How can I stop snoring?

If you or someone around you is being affected by your snoring, we will start with a consultation to determine if it is being caused by sleep apnea. We will do this by using a Pulse-Oximeter test, which records your oxygen levels while you sleep. A Pulse-Oximeter is a simple device that you wear on your wrist while sleeping at home.

Snoring that is not associated with sleep apnea can be treated with an oral sleep appliance worn during the night. The easy-to-use appliance keeps your airway open by holding the jaw and tongue in a comfortable forward position, allowing you to breathe normally and sleep soundly. Snoring that is associated with sleep apnea will require more serious treatment methods.

If you or a member of your family suffers from snoring, do not wait to seek treatment. Snoring can greatly affect your quality of life, and the sooner you get it taken care of, the sooner you will go back to sleeping soundly and feeling your best.
