SNORING & SLEEP APNEA

Snoring

Snoring is responsible for millions of couples sleeping in separate rooms. And with snoring sounds ranging from 50dB to 100dB – the equivalent to a pneumatic drill – we totally understand why.

The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way.

Snoring occurs when the soft tissues in the throat relax at bedtime. This narrows the airway and when air is breathed in, the tissues flap against each other, causing vibrations which is the dreaded sound we’re all quite familiar with.

A few simple lifestyle changes advised by our professionals, as well as the use of an Orthoapnea oral device can restore harmony to the bedroom, whether solely for yourself, or for your partner as well.

Remember, your snoring may not bother you, but it may be affecting your partner’s rest. This can put a lot of strain on the physical and psychological intimacy of your relationship.

Causes include:

  1. Being overweight

  2. Lack of exercise

  3. Alcohol abuse

  4. Smoking

  5. Sleeping pills

  6. Allergies

Symptoms:

  1. Sleep Apnea
  2. Unhappy partner
  3. Dry mouth in the morning
  4. Intimacy issues in your relationship

IMPORTANT TO KNOW

Snoring can be a symptom of Sleep Apnea.

You might think you’re just a snorer, but you may also suffer from Sleep Apnea. The difference is that the side effects of Sleep Apnea are way more severe and can easily go undetected if you have been misdiagnosed. Find out more about Sleep Apnea, here.
