Snoring and Sleep Apnea
Are you a chronic snorer or live with one? If you do, you know how annoying snoring can be (and so does your significant other).
But snoring can be more than an annoyance. It can be a sign of sleep apnea, where the sleeper actually stops and restarts breathing, sometimes hundreds of times a night.
This cessation of breathing can cause a variety of problems.
- Daytime Sleepiness
- Chronic Fatigue
- Morning Headache
- Impaired Memory and Judgment
- Mood Disturbances
Interrupting the these sleep patterns that lead to snoring may help. Dr. DeMars can fit you with a Snore Guard appliance; a comfortable mouth guard that helps keep your jaw and tongue from dropping back and restricting the air passages.
