NATIONAL STOP SNORING WEEK

19-04-2022

Snoring affects over half of the UK population. One of the biggest impacts of snoring is on another person who shares a bed or bedroom with the snorer.

Snoring once in a while isn’t a serious problem and is rather common. But if you are a long-term snorer, you can interrupt your own sleep quality and disrupt the sleep patterns of those close to you.

Snorers are in fact three times more likely suffer health problems than none snorers. It can also cause you to have a dry mouth or sore or irritated throat when you wake up.

Snoring can also be a sign of obstructive sleep apnoea – a potentially life-threatening condition if left untreated. Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a breathing disorder in which the airway gets blocked during sleep, causing repeated lapses in breath.

OSA-related snoring tends to be loud and sound as if a person is choking, snorting or gasping.

Many people are unaware that dentists play a crucial role in the diagnosis and treatment of snoring & OSA and can provide a number of dental appliances to combat the problem.
