Some snoring at night while you sleep can be normal, but not all snoring is normal. Millions of Americans don’t just snore at night, they snore so loudly that they wake themselves up repeatedly every night. This can prevent you from getting the good night’s rest that you need to be alert at work, school, and in your social life. Excessively loud snoring is not normal. If you’re experiencing this problem, you need to see a dentist right away.
The most common cause of excessively loud snoring is a disruptive sleep condition called sleep apnea. More than 100 million people worldwide suffer from sleep apnea that’s caused by a restricted airway that limits air flow at night.
Some risk factors that contribute to sleep apnea include:
Sleep apnea sufferers frequently snore loudly at night, which makes it nearly impossible to sleep peacefully.
If your snoring persists and you find yourself incapable of sleeping restfully at night, you should see the team at Kluth Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. If left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to devastating health consequences, including a higher risk of heart disease and stroke.
The constant drowsiness and fatigue sleep apnea sufferers experience can even affect your ability to drive a car safely.
If your snoring is unbearable and sleep apnea is the cause, the team at Kluth Family & Cosmetic Dentistry has answers. They can have you fitted for a custom-made intraoral appliance that will clear your airway at night, promoting healthy air flow. This will allow you to sleep through the night without snoring.
In rare cases, special surgery is required to correct your sleep apnea. If this is the case, the team at Kluth Family & Cosmetic Dentistry can provide you with a referral to a sleep specialist.
