Snoring/Sleep Apnea

Patients can have an oral appliance made to help correct their condition other than a CPAP.

The diagnosis of snoring focuses on finding out whether you might have sleep apnea. Your doctor should do a physical examination and ask questions about your medical history. A sleep study would be done if your doctor suspects the condition.

Both snoring and sleep apnea can cause sleep deprivation which can have a crippling effect on the body and mind (see graphic).

Snoring is a common condition that can affect anyone, although it occurs more frequently in men and people who are overweight. Snoring has a tendency to worsen with age.

Occasional snoring is usually not very serious and is mostly a nuisance for your bed partner. However, if you are a habitual snorer, you not only disrupt the sleep patterns of those close to you, but you too will almost surely suffer from some degree of sleep deprivation.

Take this simple Sleep Survey to help understand your problem. If you check four or more boxes, you should be seen for the condition.
