Snoring May Indicate Sleep Apnea

Reed Puelicher, D.D.S offers treatment for all sorts of oral problems - even snoring! Though most people in the Yuba City, CA area might not think of seeing a dentist for snoring, it turns out that dentists like Reed Puelicher, D.D.S., can effectively treat sleep disorders like sleep apnea, which is often the cause of snoring.

A snore is the rumbling sound of air traveling through a partially obstructed airway. When the airway becomes fully obstructed, you get obstructive sleep apnea. This breathing disorder is characterized by pauses in breathing that last at least 10 seconds, followed by gasping.

By itself, snoring isn't a health risk. Sleep apnea, on the other hand, genuinely is. When you skip breaths, your blood oxygen levels plummet. This can damage your brain and body, Sleep apnea ups your risk of various health problems, including stroke, heart attack, and memory loss.

Before Dr. Puelicher can treat a snoring problem, he needs to determine the cause. Sleep apnea treatment helps patients breathe smoothly all night long, and it has the delightful side benefit of reducing or eliminating snoring.
