How My Snoring Affects You & Your Loved Ones
Are you always being reprimanded by your spouse or a friend for your loud, disturbing snoring at night? Affecting nearly 37 million American adults on a daily basis, snoring can be the catalyst to bigger health issues and can even pose a risk to your relationships.
If left unnoticed and untreated, snoring can generate tension between you and your sleeping partner. In many cases, the result of intense snoring can be damaging to your sex life, cause irritation between you and your partner, and even lead to depression.
Snoring is also often associated with sleep apnea. Although it’s not always an indication you’re living with the sleep condition, it’s important to be properly diagnosed through a professional sleep study. This will provide you with an accurate diagnosis of your condition so you can attain useful information and suggestions for which treatment is best.
Comfortable Snoring Treatment
Focusing on a holistic approach, Dr. MacFarlane always recommends to his patients to find relief for their snoring through relaxation techniques, essential oils, aromatherapy, or even listening to quiet music. These techniques can help you receive a quality night’s sleep so you can feel healthier and ready for the day ahead of you.
We also feature snore guards, an oral appliance that gently moves your jaw forward so it can clear the soft tissue in the back of your throat that causes loud vibrations and stops your breathing pattern. Oral appliances are a personalized solution that is simple to use and can be taken with you wherever you go. They allow you to sleep through the night, and better yet, your snoring will stop and you’ll no longer disturb your sleeping partner.
