Snoring can be a cause of embarrassment and sleep deprivation both for you and for those who sleep near you. Caused by constricted airways (in the throat, nose or mouth) while sleeping, snoring can be more than an annoyance. The presence of snoring is often indicative of sleep apnea, a condition where breathing actually stops during sleep.
Sleep apnea is a chronic condition, and it causes its sufferers to partially wake up numerous times during sleep. This has a detrimental effect on the restfulness of a night’s sleep. Snoring and sleep apnea can produce daytime drowsiness, lack of focus, and irritability in its sufferers. Luckily, there are medical treatments available for both snoring and sleep apnea, and we can help you successfully obtain a full, comfortable night’s sleep.
Dr. Quinn’s treatment techniques for snoring and sleep apnea vary with the severity of the case. But the treatments are permanent and effective, unlike many “quick fixes” that are marketed without real proof of success. Surgery can be employed to widen the nasal passages or to remove potential obstructions such as the tonsils or adenoids. Treatment will vary on a case-by-case basis, but will focus around improving the quality of your sleep. Make an appointment to have your snoring evaluated and treated by our staff. Once completed, the results will be amazing.
