Snoring or Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a serious medical problem that can lead to major health problems such as high blood pressure and heart trouble if timely treatment isn’t provided.

Snoring, on the other hand, may just be an annoyance for some people but it could also have more effects than they realize including problematic.

Social dynamics at home or school due to being embarrassed about this habit during waking hours – not only does someone feel self-conscious when others know what he/she did last night after going downstairs briefly around 2am to get a drink of water, but the sound of snoring can also be bothersome to others and disrupt their sleep as well.

There are three main types of sleep apnea:

  • Obstructive
  • Central
  • Mixed

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common form and occurs when there is a blockage of the airway, usually when the soft tissue in the back of the throat collapses during sleep.

Central (CSA) is less common and occurs when the brain doesn’t send proper signals to the muscles that control breathing.

Mixed a combination of both OSA and CSA.

It can occur in people of any age but is more common in adults, especially those who are overweight or obese. It’s also more common in men than women and in people who have a family history of sleep apnea.

There are many potential consequences of untreated sleep apnea including:

– High blood pressure

– Heart disease

– Stroke


– Obesity

– Depression

– Irritability

– Memory problems

If you think you might have sleep apnea, talk to your doctor.

There are several treatment options available including lifestyle changes, mouthpieces or nasal devices that keep the airway open during sleep, and surgery.

With proper treatment, sleep apnea can be managed and the potential health consequences can be avoided.

It’s been said that an anti-snoring device a.k.a mandibular advancement device, may just do the trick here.
