Snoring is Actually a Symptom of Larger Problems

Posted on 12/20/2019 by Andrew Zeiger
Snoring is Actually a Symptom of Larger ProblemsMany people think that snoring is related to their weight, and while that can be true, it's not the whole story. Snoring is actually a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a disorder where an affected person suffers from sleep loss due to breathing problems.

Many people affected by sleep apnea report constantly feeling tired even though they say they get a good night's rest. This is because sufferers of sleep apnea often wake up in the middle of the night because they stop breathing and their brain tells them to do so.

Besides making you tired all the time; sleep apnea can actually harm your dental health. People who snore sleep with their mouth open which means that the mouth stays dry all night. A dry mouth is a great place for bacteria to grow unhindered. Long periods of time with a dry mouth can help the bacteria breakdown your teeth and increase your chance for gum disease.

Sleep Apnea Is Manageable

Though sleep apnea is bad, there are solution. We suggest a machine called a continuous positive airway pressure device (CPAP) which can help you get a better night's rest and keep your mouth healthy. The CPAP machine helps make sure you never stop breathing during the night so that you can get the most out of your sleep. The machine consists of a custom fitted mouthpiece connected to a hose and the machine. The CPAP machine will help to keep air flowing, making it easier to continue breathing.

You may be a good candidate for a CPAP machine, and we're here to help you get one. If you're interested, set up an appointment by calling our office. Once you're here we can assist you in getting your own CPAP machine, so you never have another restless night.
