Snoring Therapy

Snoring is possibly the most common sleep disorder, one that is experienced by many people and tolerated by many others. Although it may seem a harmless nuisance, it can be a sign of bigger problems that should be addressed by a doctor.

Affecting 45% of adults, snoring is troublesome not just to the snorer, but also to his or her bed partner as it can disrupt both of their sleep patterns. Caused by a physical obstruction that restricts airflow through the mouth and nose, the sound of snoring arises when the walls of the throat vibrate as the air makes its way through the air passages. The obstructions are commonly caused by blocked nasal passages, a long soft palate or uvula, bulky tissue in the neck and throat or weak muscles in the throat and tongue. Often more than one of these factors contribute to the problem.

In addition to the bothersome noise that characterizes snoring, health risks may also be present. Frequent interruptions in breathing can disrupt sleep and make it difficult to slip into a state of deep and restorative sleep. Fortunately treatment options are available to address the causes of snoring. Contact us today to find out how you and your bed partner can sleep in peace and quiet once again.
