  • Frequently Asked Questions

    What is snoring?

    Snoring is a sign of a breathing problem caused by the narrowing of the airways. Typically, snoring is the result of the vibration of the soft tissue of the throat when this narrowing occurs. These vibrations are what produce the snoring noise.

    What can be done for snoring?

    Because snoring may be caused by a number of different problems, it is helpful for someone who chronically snores to undergo a sleep test. This allows us to pinpoint the exact problem and its cause in order to offer a precise solution. Treatments for snoring may include removing the vibrating soft tissues, expanding the airways, and/or stiffening the vibrating soft tissue.

    What is obstructive sleep apnea?

    Whereas snoring is caused by a partially obstructed airway during sleep and may cause vibrations due to the limited room for breathing, obstructed sleep apnea occurs when the airway is completely blocked. This is what causes a person with sleep apnea to go without breathing for a period of time. While snoring may be more of a nuisance and can reduce oxygen intake, sleep apnea can be life threatening and cause long-term health problems.

    Can sleep apnea be corrected?
