While snoring has been the subject of many jokes, sitcoms and cartoons, it really can keep everyone in a home, including the snorer, from getting the rest needed to maintain good health. Moreover, snoring can be an indicator of a much more serious problem known as sleep apnea. Aside from interrupting sleep, this problem can contribute to problems with the central nervous, immune and digestive systems. Sleep apnea can also lead to cardiovascular problems and liver problems, and it can increase your risk of stroke and type 2 diabetes. You may also experience drowsiness, increased anxiety and memory impairment.
Only your primary doctor or sleep physician can diagnose sleep apnea. But once you have your diagnosis, we may be able to help. Our dentist, Dr. Victor J. Dongo, can see you to discuss your options for addressing this problem.
