Snoring - It’s common to experience snoring occasionally, but when it becomes a problem, Orland Dental Care can help. In fact, approximately 90 million American adults experience issues related to snoring. As we age and/or become overweight, snoring can be more of a problem. Snoring can cause disruptions in sleep and affect family members who are disturbed by loud snoring. Snoring has also been linked to heart disease.
Sleep apnea - About one-half of people who snore loudly have obstructive sleep apnea which can rarely be a life-threatening condition.
The difference between snoring and sleep apnea: Snoring occurs when the walls of the throat vibrate leading to the characteristic sound of snoring. When airways become narrow, the noise is louder. When the walls of the throat collapse completely, it creates a condition called apnea (which means breathing stops), which is the dangerous condition known as sleep apnea. If it is determined that you have sleep apnea, we will work with you to ensure you receive the best treatment for your specific case.
At Orland Dental Care, we place the utmost priority on helping our patients treat their sleep apnea and snoring conditions so they can get back to enjoying their lives without sleep deprivation and life-threatening breathing cessation.
