Snoring can be a cause of considerable concern and results when air is unable to move freely through the nose and mouth. There are a number of factors that can cause or contribute to snoring including the narrowing of the airway, nasal and sinus problems, being overweight, and poor sleep posture.
Snoring can be extremely frustrating for couples if one partner is being kept awake by the other’s snoring. Equally worrying is the fact that the snorer may be experiencing sleep apnoea – a condition that results in the airways becoming blocked and interfering with sleep quality.
If you snore, we can work with you to develop a solution that suits your needs and lifestyle. For example, we can fit you with a customised sleep device that will help you breathe better and get a more comfortable night’s sleep.
At your appointment, we’ll discuss your symptoms and specific concerns, for example whether you choke, gasp or hold your breath during your sleep. We’ll also be interested in your physical symptoms, for instance, if you wake up tired in the morning, experience insomnia, or frequently wake up with headaches.
Snoring doesn’t have to affect your sleep quality – or your partner’s – any longer. Contact us today and let’s get it sorted.
