Don't Let Your Snoring Separate You
Does your family struggle to decide which room you’ll sleep in when you’re home for the holidays? Or maybe they ask for the hotel room furthest from yours? Do the guys at deer camp make you sleep on the other side of the cabin?
Do you even know if they’re politely (or not-so-politely) trying to get a good night’s sleep even though you snore?
Snoring is caused when airways become obstructed. This can be caused by many things including:
- The relaxation of the tongue and throat muscles
- Enlarged tonsils
- enlarged soft palate and/or uvula
- Inflamed turbinates (the structures in the nose that filter and humidify the air we breathe)
- Deviated septum
- Blocked sinuses
This isn’t just a noisy nuisance. Snoring can be part of a serious health issue. In some cases, individuals stop breathing while they sleep (this is known as sleep apnea) which may wake them or cause them to gasp for breath.
To determine what the cause of your snoring is, it’s best to consult a medical professional. Sinus and Snoring MD’s medical staff is specially trained to diagnose and identify the treatment that’s right for you.
We start with an in-office consultation and examination. Often these are paired with a sleep study, conducted in the comfort of your own home. The combined results help our staff to develop a treatment plan to fix your snoring issues, and to help you get a better and safer night’s sleep.
When you’re able to spend a quiet, restful night sleeping, so does everyone else. It’s time to be the guest your relatives are happy to host or the guy at deer camp that doesn’t scare the 8-pointer away.
