Snoring and Sleep Apnea
Snoring and sleep apnea are two sleep disorders that are often linked. Most people who have sleep apnea snore. It is one of the most common symptoms that accompany obstructive sleep apnea. However, not everyone who snores has sleep apnea. Snoring can be a result of many different issues, but it can still impact your sleep and the sleep of others around you. If you snore, with or without sleep apnea, our sleep disorder dentists at Buford Sleep can offer you relief.
Snoring is caused by breathing issues during sleep. Nasal congestion, respiratory issues, large tonsils, large tongues, mouth breathing and other factors can cause you to snore. Deeply relaxed sleepers who drink alcohol, use muscle relaxers or take sleep medications are prone to snoring. Snoring is also a common symptom of sleep apnea, which can impact your overall health. Controlling snoring can help you sleep and breathe better, as well as reduce noise for others while you sleep.
