Why do people snore?
Snoring is common with more than 30 percent of people worldwide. Some people snore due to excessive nasal tissue which vibrates, making the noise. The position of the tongue may also prevent you from enjoying a restful night even when sleeping. Even though it may seem troublesome, snoring is easily resolved at Associates of Otolaryngology.
Even though snoring is more common in men, both men and women suffer from snoring. Persistent snoring can also lead to other issues such as headaches, tiredness, and poor concentration throughout the day. There might be several reasons behind your snoring like your sleeping posture, smoking, consumption of alcohol, sinus issues, being overweight, aging, or narrow air and throat passage.
Snoring itself is not serious, but it could be an indication that you are suffering from serious conditions like obstructive sleep apnea. This is a severe condition that requires diagnosis and treatment.
The effects of snoring
The person who suffers the most is the one who sleeps next to a loved one who snores. Snoring may damage your relationship, especially when your sleep suffers or it seems like the only solution is sleeping separately. Our team understands the various effects of snoring on your life and we evaluate your sleep pattern and rule out other issues like sinusitis, allergies, tonsil disease, or nasal obstruction before we begin your treatment.
Snoring remedy and treatment
At Associates of Otolaryngology, we conduct a sleep study and diagnose sleep disorders. Since the position of your tongue is a major reason for snoring, we also offer tongue procedures which stabilize the base of your tongue to keep it in a better position. Alternatively, the soft palate can be strengthened with an injection to prevent its vibration; this procedure is called Snoreplasty and is a simple in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia. Our team is dedicated to diagnosing the reasons behind your snoring and help you with the best treatments to alleviate symptoms. We strive to help you live a healthier and better life.
About Highlands Ranch, CO
Highlands Ranch is a census-designated place in the Douglas County of Colorado. The Colorado Gold Rush brought people to Colorado in droves in the late 19th century and early 20th centuries. Even though Denver (about 12 miles to the North) grew considerably, the area still remained a series of farms and ranches. The first homes were built in 1981 in Highlands Ranch and over the next 25 years, it saw great growth and expansion. It is part of the Denver metropolitan area as well as the Front Range Urban Corridor.
