Snoring and Sleep Apnea
If you have sleep apnea, you most likely have episodes of loud snoring. Most people with sleep apnea snore, some more than others. There are also many other people who snore for other reasons that are unrelated to sleep apnea. Snoring can be an indicator you are not getting quality sleep, and it could also be impacting the sleep of others in your household. Marietta Sleep offers non-intrusive treatment for snoring and sleep apnea to ensure everyone in your home can get the rest they need.
Stop Snoring and Sleep Better
What is snoring? You know the sound when you hear it, but it can occur for many reasons. Almost everyone snores at one point or another. The sound you hear indicates breathing obstructions, the sound of air passing through mucus or soft tissue. Nasal congestion or drinking too much alcohol can result in snoring. Sleep apnea, obesity, large tonsils and some respiratory conditions can cause chronic snoring that occurs almost every night.
Chronic snoring most likely is affecting your sleep quality, whether or not you have sleep apnea. Oral appliance therapy is a non-invasive treatment that can open your airway and improve your breathing to allow you to sleep more soundly. Our oral appliance therapy at Marietta Sleep uses a customized mouthguard that fits comfortably over your teeth to reposition your jaw while you sleep. It is a safe and effective treatment option for snoring and sleep apnea.
