Snoring – a dangerous habit for the snorer and his loved ones
A fact is that the snorers normally don’t realize their snoring is a problem. It bothers their partners much more, that is why snoring can lead to probems in the relationship.
Overcoming harder breathing during the time that is meant for resting can cause numerous problems like restless sleep, morning headaches, irritability, cronic tiredness, problems focusing, bad mood, excess sleepiness and a drop of libido.
Snoring is also one of the leading symptoms of obstrucktive sleep apnea (OSA), which cannot be missed, because it can lead to serious medical conditions (high blood pressure, aterosclerosis, a higher risk for heart and brain strokes, heart failure, arrhytmia, diabetes, obesety, deression, erectyle disfunction…).
We can prevent these problems by figuring out the reason for snoring and eliminating it as fast as we can. If the reason is soft tissue movement in the throat, we can do this in different ways:
- with sprays (we don’t recommend longterm use),
with the use of orthodontic appliances (they can be very uncomfortable),
with the CPAP machine (it is required to use a breathing mask during sleep-it is extremely uncomfortable),
- with a surgical procedure (anaesthesia is needed and a longer recovery period, because it is very invasive),
- with a laser procedure (the NightLase procedure is unpainful, we don’t need anaesthesia, for a successful therapy we need three sessions).
