Sleep Apnoea and Snoring Treatment

Do you sleep next to someone who snores? Does your partner complain about your snoring at night? If you’re affected by snoring, it can prevent you and your loved ones from getting the good night’s rest that you need. The Australian Sleep Health Foundation reports that about 15% of adults snore regularly. Middle-aged men are at the highest risk of being snorers. The team at Nicholas Baker’s Dental Surgery can provide the solutions you need so that you can sleep well again.

How Snoring Occurs

Woman with pillow over ears next to man snoringThe back of your throat is referred to as the pharynx. When you’re sleeping, this area of the throat vibrates. When you’re awake during the day, the pharynx’s muscles hold it open. At night when you lie down, the muscles relax and your airway narrows. This narrowing is what causes the vibration. If your airway is narrow, you likely snore.

Who Is at Risk

You are more likely to snore if you have any of the following risk factors:

  • Are overweight
  • Sleep on your back
  • Drink alcohol
  • Have blocked nasal passages from the flu or a cold
  • Take medications that relax the throat muscles

Learn More About Sleep Apnoea

Have you heard of sleep apnoea? Obstructive sleep apnoea, or OSA, means that you snore due to a partial or complete obstruction of your airway when you sleep. Your breathing stops periodically, causing you to wake up during the night. If you have sleep apnoea, you likely feel fatigued and have difficulty concentrating due to not getting the rest you need.

Sleep apnoea is also associated with a greater risk of heart attack, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, depression and accidents.
