Snoring & Sleep Apnea
A snoring problem may be annoying for your significant other, but worse it is a health risk for you. It may also be a sign of a more serious problem, like sleep apnea. Sleep apnea occurs when the tongue falls back into your throat and blocks off your airway during sleep. It is a serious and dangerous problem that increases your risk for several other medical conditions such as heart attack, stroke, and diabetes. If you believe you have sleep apnea we encourage you to see your physician. If you know you have sleep apnea and you would like to try a sleep appliance we can help. If you do not have sleep apnea, but your snoring is bothersome to others, you may also wish to try a sleep appliance.
Did you know that good nights sleep can change your life? Cycling through all stages of sleep is beneficial for your well being. If you or a loved one have a snoring problem or sleep apnea, you or they may not be cycling though all stages of sleep at night, which can cause several problems including: weight gain, stress issues, and grogginess/tiredness throughout the day. Our bodies produce hormones at night when we cycle through all stages of sleep, some of these hormones are responsible for weight management and stress relief.
