Chronic snoring may sound like the punchline to a joke, but in truth snoring may signal a more serious issue such as sleep apnea. In Las Vegas, snoring treatment is routinely offered and successfully implemented by Dr. Robert Chin and Dr. Jessica Pharar, who provide snoring relief to patients and their families when other solutions fail.
What Causes Snoring?
An occasional night or two of snoring is no reason for concern. Fueled by a cold or other short-term respiratory issues that impact the flow of breathing, snoring will often resolve on its own. But if snoring should interfere with your sleep, or that of your partner, it may be time to seek snoring treatment for a more serious condition known as sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea causes the soft tissues of the airway to collapse when you relax during sleep. This can cause you to stop breathing repeatedly during the night. You may find you don’t feel well rested upon waking in the morning, but sleep apnea can also trigger such conditions as hypertension, heart disease, and depression when left untreated. Sleep apnea may be genetic, or can be caused by obesity, excessive alcohol consumption, or even jaw misalignment.
Get Help for Chronic Snoring
Drs. Chin are Las Vegas snoring treatment experts. If jaw misalignment is to blame for your sleep apnea, the doctors can provide relief with TMJ treatment. TMJ is a condition caused by the irritation of your jaw joint. Effective solutions to TMJ and the accompanying chronic snoring might also include custom mouth guards worn at night, braces or oral surgery.
Whatever the root cause of your chronic snoring, do not wait too long to seek treatment. Over-the-counter remedies such as strips designed to open your nasal passages are short-term solutions to what may be a long-term and potentially serious medical issue.
