Comfortable Snoring Treatments

Snoring Affects the People Around You

While many people don't take snoring seriously, it can actually be a big issue. Snoring is one of the most common symptoms of sleep apnea, a dangerous sleep condition that can affect your everyday life and your health.

But snoring can affect more people in your life, too. Your closest relationships can be damaged by letting your snoring go untreated, as romantic partners are the people who notice snoring the most. Many sleep-deprived spouses or partners end up retreating to other rooms to sleep. This is why many people look to find the right snoring treatments for them.

Snore Guards: Sleep Silently in Rochester, MN

Even if you don't have sleep apnea, a sleep mouthpiece can still help you and your partner. They can change the position of your mouth as you sleep to eliminate noise so you can sleep silently.

Some snore guards push your jaw forward slightly to open your airway, while others hold your tongue in place so it doesn't fall back into your throat.

These appliances can help you sleep peacefully and improve the lives of those closest to you. You'll finally be able to share a bed every night without your snoring driving you apart.

Is Your Snoring a Sign of Sleep Apnea?

Snoring isn’t necessarily a sign of sleep apnea, but it’s one of the most noticeable signs. If you notice the symptoms of sleep apnea in yourself or a loved one, Dr. Henrichsen urges you to undergo a sleep test.

A sleep test can diagnose sleep disorders, whether you have sleep apnea or another issue. The test takes place overnight and monitors the quality and quantity of your sleep. Then, a doctor can provide a diagnosis based on the results of your test.

Once you have a diagnosis, Dr. Henrichsen can help you find a solution to your sleep apnea or snoring.
