What Causes Snoring?
Snoring is very common and is caused by the vibration of the soft tissue in your head and neck as you breathe in and out.
Your airways relax and narrow when you sleep, which effects air pressure within your airways, causing the tissue vibration.
Snoring can sometimes indicate a more serious condition called obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). This is where a person’s airways become partially or totally blocked for about ten seconds.
As a result, the lack of oxygen causes a person to come out of a deep sleep and repeated episodes can lead to excessive tiredness during the day.
At Pure Smiles, we can give you the treatment you need and we screen for OSA and if required, we recommend referral to a sleep clinic.
We can help you beat the snores for good
You should seek treatment if your snoring is impacting aspects of your life, such as causing tiredness and poor concentration.
Also, you may seek treatment if your snoring is disturbing your partner’s sleep.
Treatments such as dental splints and anti-snoring devices are available. If your snoring is more severe, we may need to provide you with a CPAP device. These devices are only prescribed after assessment at a sleep clinic.
A good night’s sleep is hugely important for our health, so if snoring is a problem for you, Pure Smiles dentists can help you.
