Snoring Solutions in Northridge
Address Sleep Apnea & Improve Your Health
When the average healthy person is out and about on a normal day, air flows freely through their nose and mouth and breathing is not a concern. However, many people find that while they sleep and their throat muscles are relaxed, air has a harder time passing through. This is what leads to snoring. While it can be inconvenient for both the patient and loved ones nearby, it is important to remember that it can also have a significant impact on a person’s overall health and wellness. At Holistic Orthodontics, our team offers Northridge snoring solutions that are tailored to each individual’s needs.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Snoring is one of the primary indications of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). People with this condition experience choking or gasping for air in their sleep, often without even realizing it is happening. This results in poor quality of sleep and the body not receiving proper oxygen levels. Left untreated, sleep apnea can greatly increase the risk of health problems such as stroke, high blood pressure, heart failure, diabetes, headaches, depression, and more.
You should seriously consider getting a sleep evaluation if you notice the following symptoms:
- Excessive snoring
- High blood pressure
- Extreme fatigue
- Frequent bathroom trips during the night
- Dry mouth
- Sexual dysfunction
