Snoring & Sleep Apnoea
Snoring is a common problem in many households, affecting the sleep quality of the snorer as well as anyone else sleeping in close proximity to them. As the lower jaw and tongue become relaxed when the snorer is asleep, they narrow the airway and restrict breathing ability. This then causes air to vibrate over the soft palate to create a loud, fluttering sound.
If the tongue falls back over this narrowed airway and interrupts normal breathing levels, sleep apnoea may develop. Sleep apnoea is a serious condition that causes a person to unknowingly stop breathing for short periods of time, leaving suffers fatigued by day as a result of poor sleep quality. In advanced cases, reduced air intake can impact on oxygen levels, possibly acting as a precursor to heart attacks and strokes.
