Snoring Treatment in Fairfax, VA

Snoring is a common problem that can affect your sleep or the sleep of your partner. Snoring is noisy breathing that can occur when nasal passages are not easily allowing airflow during sleep. While snoring can be disruptive, especially to a partner, it is not generally a serious problem. While chronic snoring or snoring that also disrupts sleep coupled with other symptoms can indicate a condition known as sleep apnea, most snoring can be treated simply in a way that allows easier, more peaceful sleep for you and your loved one.

What Causes Snoring?

Snoring happens when air cannot flow properly through the nose or mouth. There are many reasons why this airflow can be disrupted. These can be due to anatomy, alcohol consumption, colds or allergies, or any number of other factors. Some of the most common causes of snoring include:

  • Alcohol Consumption
  • Nasal Problems
  • Sleep Position
  • Mouth Anatomy
  • Sleep Deprivation

Each of these causes can contribute to snoring symptoms that can disrupt sleep and cause restless nights.

Symptoms of Snoring

It can be difficult to self-diagnose yourself with snoring. However, snoring can be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea, so more extreme symptoms may occur that indicate you have a sleep disorder. If you have a partner, you will most likely be aware if you have a snoring issue. Some of the most common symptoms of snoring include:

  • Restless Sleep
  • Loud Snoring
  • Mouth Breathing
  • Sore Throat upon Awakening
  • Excessive Daytime Sleepiness

If snoring is disrupting your sleep, Fair City Mall Dental Care can help treat the symptoms to allow you to rest easier at night.

Treatment Options for Snoring

There are many different treatment options for snoring, depending on severity. A simple solution is a mouth appliance that can help alleviate the symptoms of snoring. An oral appliance can help keep your airway open by positioning the jaw or tongue while you sleep. Other treatment options for more severe cases include surgery (in the case of a deviated septum or other condition) or a CPAP machine for sleep apnea. If chronic snoring is disrupting your sleep, make an appointment with Fair City Mall Dental Care to see if an oral appliance might work for you.
