Snoring Treatment – Las Vegas, NV
A Quiet Night’s Rest Every Time
You know the sound -- loud, chronic snoring. Maybe your partner’s noisy breathing keeps you up at night, or perhaps you’re the snorer in the room. Either way, you’ve got to find a solution for the disruptive condition, and fast. To do so, it can help to learn what causes chronic snoring in the first place, and where you can find treatment.
What Causes Snoring?
We all snore from time to time, as sickness or other factors occasionally inhibit breathing during sleep. But when it’s a chronic condition, snoring is far more serious. It’s often caused by an obstruction of the airway by the lower jaw or tongue, which blocks air and creates the vibrations that sound like snoring. And when that’s the cause of your snoring, you’ve got the condition known as obstructive sleep apnea.
Snoring & Sleep Apnea Symptoms
Obstructive sleep apnea is estimated to affect some 22 million Americans -- many of whom don’t even realize they have it. In addition to chronic snoring, symptoms of sleep apnea include the following.
- Dry throat upon waking
- Frequent waking throughout the night with a gasping or choking sensation
- Morning headaches
- Daytime confusion
Treatment for Snoring & Sleep Apnea
When you come in for your sleep apnea consultation with Dr. West, she’ll ask you a series of questions and carefully consider your case to determine whether or not sleep apnea could be the cause of your snoring and sleep issues. If it is, she’ll likely fit you with a customized, removable oral device that you wear only during sleep. Think of it as the type of mouthguard athletes wear -- it works by holding your lower jaw and tongue in place to prevent snoring. Patients who have found relief with this treatment agree: you just can’t put a price on a full night’s sleep.
Laser Snoring Treatment
Would you like to experience relief from snoring in as little as five minutes? If the tissues in your mouth’s soft palate are responsible for your snoring, a laser treatment may be able to help. It can tighten the collagen in your palate, opening your airway and resulting in a freer flow of air. You may therefore experience fewer noisy vibrations. The procedure is quick and comfortable, and its results can last for up to a year or longer!
