Overview

Snoring is a condition that leaves its sufferers feeling helpless. When breathing is obstructed by narrowed airways, it causes the tissues to vibrate and make an audible sound. This involuntary process results in a fitful night’s rest, not to mention the disruption to a partner’s sleep. In extreme cases, the airway can become blocked, a condition known as obstructive sleep apnea. The resulting sleep deprivation can affect health and quality of life; tiredness, morning headaches, irritability, impaired concentration, dry mouth, and relationship difficulties are some of the negative consequences of snoring. Snoring can develop as a result of the aging process, nasal and sinus problems, being overweight, alcohol consumption, smoking, certain medications, and sleep posture. Many of the traditional approaches to relieve snoring involve uncomfortable dental appliances and sleep apnea devices, or surgical solutions that involve a lengthy recovery period without guaranteed improvements. Developments in non-invasive laser therapy can provide patients with a safe and effective solution to resolve snoring and sleep apnea.
