Is Snoring a Problem?
Snoring occurs when the tissues in the back of your throat partially block your airway, causing a vibration as air passes over it, making a noise.
Snoring has been thought for years to only be a nuisance and a problem for the person that has to sleep with the snorer. Recent studies, however, suggest a link between snoring and carotid atherosclerosis (hardening of the carotid arteries, which supply blood to the brain) and type II diabetes. This has serious implications both as a public health measure and as an individual health issue, since almost half of our population habitually snores.
Atherosclerosis can lead to high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke. Snoring can also be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea, a potentially serious health problem that has also been shown to increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke.
If you or someone you love snores, we can help. At the Carolina Dental Sleep Center, our primary focus is patients who suffer from sleep disordered breathing, either snoring or sleep apnea, who want an alternative to CPAP or surgery.
We work with the finest sleep physicians and ENTs in the area to make sure your problem is properly diagnosed and that a comfortable and affordable treatment is made available to you.
Our oral appliance therapy has proven effective for thousands of fellow sufferers, making a good night's sleep possible once again for both you AND your bed partner.
