Maybe is time for a treatment for snoring and sleep apnea.
A solid night of sound sleep is important; so important that a person's overall health and ability to function effectively during the day depends on it. But when normal breathing patterns are disrupted during sleep, it's not unusual for health to deteriorate.
But, patients with suffer from sleep complications can get help from specialists, said Dr. Richard DiVerde, sleep apnea dentist in Chicago. "Many people suffer from snoring. It happens when the soft tissues of your throat narrow, causing vibration as air passes through. This restriction in air flow can not only prevent you and those in your household from getting a good night's sleep, but studies are finding that snoring can have a negative impact on your total body health," said Dr. DiVerde.
Although for many people snoring is harmless, in some cases it can also be a sign of a more serious medical condition known as sleep apnea, a disorder that causes a person to stop breathing during sleep. Sleep apnea is characterized by episodes of abnormal pauses in breathing during sleep, which can last several seconds.
The episodes are caused by a blockage that occurs within the airway that impedes the natural flow of breathing. One of the most common symptoms of sleep apnea is snoring. That's why if a patient is a loud, habitual snorer, Dr. DiVerde, encourages him or her must visit a sleep disorder specialist for further diagnosis and and recommend a treatment plan for each individual case.
