What could be causing my snoring?
Sometimes when we go to sleep, the airflow coming in through the nose and mouth can become turbulent due to an obstruction. The turbulent air then begins to vibrate which is what causes the sounds of snoring. Snoring interrupts your rest, along with the rest of the others around you, and can lead to fatigue and other health issues.
What is sleep apnea?
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a disorder associated with snoring that occasionally causes you to stop breathing throughout the night. This ultimately leads to headaches, reduced mental function, and a loss of sex drive.
Other more serious conditions that can develop because of sleep apnea include:
● High blood pressure
● Irregular heartbeat
● Risk of stroke
● Heart attack
Obstructive sleep apnea puts a strain on both your health and your relationships.
How do we treat sleep apnea and snoring?
Oftentimes, sleep apnea can be traced back to a nasal blockage or sinus issue. Your OSA can be related to allergic swelling, nasal obstruction, or polyps. Abnormalities in the tongue, throat, and mouth can also lead to sleep apnea and snoring.
At Trinity ENT, we can diagnose the root cause of your sleep apnea to make sure that you get the best treatment plan for your unique needs. One of our main treatment options for sleep apnea at Trinity ENT is called Inspire.
