Snoring Solutions

Snoring, often a result of obstructed air movement during sleep, can be more than just a nuisance. At Brisbane Dental and Denture Clinic, we understand that snoring, caused by airflow obstruction through the mouth and nose, isn’t just disruptive; it could indicate a serious condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). The obstruction leads to throat wall vibrations, producing the familiar snoring sound. Common causes include obstructed nasal airways, poor muscle tone in the throat and tongue, and bulky throat tissue.

Recognizing the Importance of Treating Snoring

Snoring is not only a disturbance to your sleep and relationships but can also be an early sign of OSA. To address this, lifestyle changes like weight loss, avoiding alcohol before bed, or side-sleeping may help.

Symptoms of Chronic Snoring and Disrupted Sleep:

  • Daytime Drowsiness
  • Headaches
  • Irritability
  • Lack of Focus
  • Decreased Sex Drive
