LA grande Snoring/Sleep Apnea treatment
You know snoring upsets your sleeping partner and can even create rifts in relationships, but did you know that snoring may be a sign of a more serious problem? Snoring happens for a reason – it means your airways are blocked, and sometimes, airways can close completely. This condition is called sleep apnea, and it’s been linked to high blood pressure, memory loss, and even premature death.
Wake Up to the Signs of Sleep Apnea
Loud snoring is the most common symptom of sleep apnea. Other symptoms include:
- Restless sleep
- Gasping for breath at night
- Excessive daytime drowsiness
- Morning or nighttime headaches
- Heartburn or chest pain while sleeping
Assessing the Situation
Because sleep apnea has been linked to high blood pressure, heart disease, and an increased risk of stroke, you or your bed partner should seek immediate treatment. Dr. Harris can evaluate the cause of your snoring and provide an effective solution. A custom-made snoreguard opens airways, preventing lapses in breathing and eliminating loud snoring. Most patients have little trouble adjusting to the thin, flexible appliance and begin noticing a difference in sleeping and daytime behavior almost immediately.
