If you've been snoring and sleeping poorly, trust me, you’re not alone. Sleep apnea affects millions of people, and most of them and don't even realize they may suffer from it!
Although snoring is the most obvious symptom, not everyone who snores suffers from sleep apnea. Snoring can be considered a warning sign, however sleep apnea is not snoring, it’s when a sleeping person actually stops breathing, and ends up gasping for air!
In fact, apneas occur when a person stops breathing for 10 seconds or longer, and can happen when your airway gets blocked when you sleep. It’s these types of breathing issues that become a much bigger concern than snoring, even though snoring is what typically initially brings a person to My Dentist in Plano for a Sleep Apnea Consultation.
Sleep apneas can be hard to diagnose yourself since it does occur during sleep. For this reason, many times it’s a significant other who first notices symptoms of snoring and breathing issues. Which leads us to another enormous benefit of sleep apnea treatment, and that’s treating the snoring itself!
If you have a significant other who snores, you’re probably fully aware of how difficult it can be to get a useful nights rest yourself. The good news is, we can help with those snoring issues, and improve the quality of relationship!
