A good night's sleep is essential to a productive day. But what if you're struggling to get the sleep you need? Snoring may be the culprit.
If you snore, you may have wondered if it is harmful. You're not alone—many people are concerned about the health risks associated with snoring.
Usually, snoring is simply a nuisance; however, snoring can signify a more serious health problem.
The air passing through the nose and mouth vibrates the soft palate, uvula, throat, and other tissues in the back of the throat, causing the sound of snoring.
Sometimes, snoring can mean a more serious health condition, such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).
People with sleep apnea stop breathing during the night for short periods, resulting in less time in deep restorative sleep necessary for energy and clear brain function.
OSA may also lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. You should see a sleep apnea dentist if you snore a lot and have trouble sleeping. The right treatments can help you rest and improve your health.
Most people who snore do not have Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). However, snoring is a common symptom of OSA. Snoring and other symptoms, headaches, excessive daytime sleepiness, or dry mouth may indicate OSA.
Chronic loud snoring may be a more serious problem than occasional snoring. If your snoring disrupts your sleep or the sleep of those around you, it is likely to be considered a more serious snoring problem.
