If you snore on a regular basis, then this could actually mean you need treatment for a sleep disorder. This could not only impact your relationships, but also your overall health as well. At our Tampa, FL, sleep center, we can offer customized treatments to help you stop snoring and enjoy better rest.
The Factors Behind Chronic Snoring
Do you often find yourself snoring at night? This could irritate your significant other and even prevent them from obtaining the rest needed to feel alert the day. Sleep deprivation can mean a number of issues, and could impact your relationship. But your own health will suffer too. This could be linked to an increased risk of associated disorders like type-2 diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, and over time, even heart attack and stroke. Your fatigue could also mean issues staying alert and concentrating on tasks at work or school. When you snore, or your significant other complains about it, let us know right away!
The Connection with Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Often, your chronic snaring could be a sign that you suffer from sleep apnea. With snoring, your airways are partially blocked by soft tissues, so a loud sound is created when you breathe. With sleep apnea, you stop breathing completely as the airways are obstructed by the collapse of soft tissues. You stop breathing until the brain wakes you, which interrupts your REM sleep and leaves you feeling exhausted the next day, while also straining your heart health and immune system too.
A CPAP Alternative
When you see us for treatment, we will conduct a detailed diagnosis to see if you need treatment, and to choose the right solution. For many, we can provide an alternative to the CPAP device. No loud device, no mask over your face, instead we will custom-make an oral appliance that looks and fits like a mouthguard. The device will be worn as you sleep, repositioning the jaw to keep airways open and obstruction-free. The device is also easy to use and clean, and can travel with you easily. Plus, this doesn’t impact how your special someone sleeps either!
If you have any questions about putting a stop to your chronic snoring and sleep apnea symptoms, then please reach out to our team today. Let’s make 2024 the year you and your significant other enjoy your best sleep.
