WHAT IS SNORING?
The noisy sounds of snoring occur when there is an obstruction to the flow of air through the back of the mouth and nose. This area is the collapsible part of the airway where the tongue and upper throat meet the soft palate and uvula. Snoring occurs when these structures get close to touching each other and vibrate during breathing. When they do touch each other and don’t vibrate, then that individual has one apneic event.
Is Snoring Serious?
Yes! While it is socially annoying to the bed partner and may sometimes wake the snorer, it could be a sign of sleep apnea. Only a licensed professional medical provider can tell you for sure if you have sleep apnea.
The treatment of sleep apnea with a dental appliance will reduce and often ELIMINATE snoring for the person wearing the appliance.
What Does a Snoring Doctor Do?
A snoring specialist may ask you some basic questions for initial evaluation and typically recommend an at-home sleep study. After determining the severity of your condition, the specialist will give you some treatment options. These include more extreme options such as Somnoplasty, Tonsillectomy, Adenoidectomy, and other, less invasive options that can be extremely effective and gentle on the body. We recommend seeing Dr. Shirazi and the team at TMJ and Sleep Therapy Centre of Los Angeles and Conejo Valley so we can help you decide on the best treatment option for your specific issues and needs.
