Even if you’ve been doing it for years, you can stop snoring completely in just one night! Dr. Poss can design a fitted mouthpiece to quiet your nighttime breathing once and for all.
When Snoring is Inconvenient
Some people are so embarrassed by their snoring that they are afraid to sleep in public places. They might force themselves to stay awake on long plane rides or spend extra money for a single hotel room. Others may not even know how bad their snoring is, but their bed partners sure do!
Snoring may be preventing you and your loved ones from getting a restful night’s sleep. After just one snore-free night, you can reclaim the invigorating energy you might’ve forgotten you could feel in the morning.
When Snoring is Dangerous
Snoring occurs when there is a blockage in the airway that creates loud vibration during breathing. Obstructive sleep apnea occurs if the blockage is large enough to completely cut off airflow. Left untreated, sleep apnea not only wakes a sufferer frequently during the night but can also lead to diabetes, weight gain, mood swings, and even heart disease.
Not all snorers have sleep apnea, but almost all who have sleep apnea snore. Dr. Poss can accurately determine if your snoring is a sign of sleep apnea by conducting a sleep test right here in our office.
