Does your snoring keep your partner awake at night? Snoring occurs due to a partially obstructed airway during sleep. While this can be harmless, it could also signal a more serious condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Sleep Apnea occurs when an airway is blocked during sleep and can be presented as a pause in breathing that can last between ten seconds to a minute.
Your dentist can offer a number of solutions to treat snoring and sleep apnea to provide you a better night’s sleep. Treating sleep apnea can result in better health and a greater feeling of being rested. Patients suffering from sleep apnea can wake many times during the night, causing you to wake up feeling exhausted.
