Snoring | Apnea | Nightlase


Snoring is a social problem that often causes problems in your immediate environment. It also affects the sleep quality, causing the person to feel sleepless and tired during the day.

Snoring is the disturbing sound caused by the shaking of the soft tissues as the air passes through the upper respiratory tract during breathing. The intensity of the sound generated varies depending on how narrow the airways are and the age, weight and sleeping position.

Snoring is one of the main symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Sleep apnea is characterized by one or more breathing interruptions while sleeping. It leads to many health problems such as attention deficit, extreme irritability, forgetfulness and in later cases – heart disease.

In the treatment of snoring, the dentist works in coordination with the otolaryngologist to evaluate the factors that cause snoring determining the treatment option needed by the patient.
