Snoring is a common problem that is experienced by a number of patients. It can stop both you and your partner from getting a good night’s sleep and feeling well-rested throughout the day. It can also be a sign of other underlying health conditions. SFENTA can help patients who experience chronic snoring achieve a more peaceful night of sleep.
What Causes Snoring?
Snoring is a common sleep condition that affects people of all ages. However, this problem does tend to get worse with age. When the muscles on the roof of your mouth, tongue, and throat begin to relax, part of your airway becomes blocked. When you breathe, the airflow needs to be more forceful to get through, which leads to the vibration of the tissues. Once these tissues begin vibrating, snoring begins. Snoring is also a common side effect of sleep apnea, which causes patients to stop breathing for short periods of time while asleep. The ENT specialists of SFENTA offer testing and treatment options for both snoring and sleep apnea.
