Sleep Disorders

Does your snoring wake you or your partner several times a night? Do you feel tired when you wake up? If the answer is yes, you might be risking more than a good night's sleep. You could be risking your health. Your snoring could be a sign of sleep apnea or other serious airway disturbances. Recent medical research has discovered that airway breathing disorders can increase your risk for more serious systemic life-threatening disease such as stroke, diabetes or even death.

In some cases, patients may need a snore guard to eliminate snoring and provide a more restful sleep. It is important to get an evaluation if you feel you may have a breathing disorder.
