Snoring Impacts Your Life
Sleep impacts every aspect of your health and daily life. Getting a good night’s sleep helps you look, feel and perform at your best. But a sleep problem can be harmful to your health and well-being. One of the most common sleep problems is snoring. Unfortunately snoring can also affect the person you sleep next to as well.
Scientifically speaking, snoring is a sound that occurs during sleep when soft tissue in the upper airway vibrates as you breathe. Snoring is very common in men, but also occurs often in women, especially during pregnancy and after menopause. Nasal obstruction, obesity, alcohol and smoking all increase the risk of snoring.
The sound of snoring tends to be most disturbing to a bed partner or roommate, but loud snoring can also wake the person who snores, too. Loud and frequent snoring is a common sign of obstructive sleep apnea.
How is Snoring Diagnosed?
A doctor must determine if your snoring is a sign that you have obstructive sleep apnea. A doctor who is a sleep specialist can provide you with a complete sleep evaluation. This may involve either an overnight sleep study at a sleep center or a home sleep apnea test. The sleep doctor will interpret the data from your sleep study to make a diagnosis.
How is Snoring Treated?
Research shows that dental sleep treatment is an option to reduce or eliminate snoring and treat obstructive sleep apnea. An oral sleep appliance is medical device worn in the mouth while you sleep and fits like a sports mouth guard or an orthodontic retainer. Oral appliances are custom fit to support your jaw in a forward position to help maintain an open upper airway. Dental Sleep Devices are quiet, portable and easy to care for. They are also devices approved by the FDA and custom fit using 3D scanning technology and expertly adjusted to ensure the best comfort.
Losing weight, avoiding alcohol and smoking, and sleeping on your side also can help reduce snoring. Talk to Dr. Waterman at Dental Sleep Pros to see if oral appliance therapy is the best treatment option for you. Oral appliance therapy is covered by many medical insurance plans.
