Help Everyone Enjoy A Full Night’s Rest

If you snore in your sleep, then you likely know how disruptive it can be for members of your family. If your life is being negatively affected due to snoring, Dr. Hamlett has several solutions that can be customized to improve the quality of your sleep and the quality of your life (as well as the people around you). His treatments can often help a person stop snoring the very first night and even prevent the onset of a very serious sleep disorder called sleep apnea.

Snoring Causes

Snoring affects people and genders of all types although it occurs more frequently in men and people who are obese. Although it isn’t always a serious problem other than for your sleeping companion, it can pose medical problems for you that you should be aware of.

Snoring is caused when the air flow through the mouth and nose is obstructed. This can be caused by an obstructed nasal airway, throat, and tongue muscles that become too relaxed, by having a bulky throat due to obesity, or by having a long uvula.

Health Risks of Snoring

Snoring can result in the following health problems:

  • Interruptions in breathing for over 10 seconds
  • Poor night’s sleep due to frequent waking
  • Strain on the heart that can result in increased risk for cardiovascular disease

Schedule a Consultation for a Snoring Treatment

Snoring FAQ

What causes snoring?

Snoring can be caused by one or a combination of issues, including weight, alcohol consumption, allergies, colds, and the anatomy of your sinuses and mouth. Your sleeping position can also affect snoring.

Is snoring bad for you?

Snoring isn’t just annoying to your sleeping partner – it can also have negative health effects. Snoring can disrupt your sleep causing fatigue and sleep apnea (disruptions in breathing) which can put stress on your heart.

Why have I started snoring?

If you didn’t use to snore but have recently started snoring, it could be a result of weight gain, medications or alcohol use, aging, or jaw or oral problems. If snoring has become a problem, contact Hamlett & La Mastra, DDS to schedule a consultation to diagnose your snoring issues.

What can I do to stop snoring?

If you are consistently experiencing snoring, here are a few things you can do:

  • Limit alcohol intake (especially before bed)
  • Lose weight
  • Change your sleeping position (try laying on your side)
  • Get new pillows (old pillows can be full of allergens)
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Keep nasal passageways open (hot showers, salt water rinse, nasal strips)

If none of these recommendations help, contact Hamlett & La Mastra, DDS to schedule an appointment to diagnose the causes of your snoring.
