We Treat Sleep Apnea & Snoring
Sleep apnea and snoring can wreak havoc on your personal health and the health of your relationship. When the airway is partially obstructed, we snore. As we draw a breath, the opening it passes through is partially obstructed and the air rushes in faster, causing the surrounding tissues to vibrate and create the classic snoring sound.
While loud snoring is a symptom of sleep apnea, not everyone who snores has the disorder. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common type of sleep apnea and is caused by a complete or partial obstruction of the upper airway.
As a result, breathing repeatedly stops and starts throughout the night. The continuous loss of oxygen places additional stress on various systems throughout the body and can lead to serious health consequences if left untreated.
Both sleep apnea and snoring can leave you feeling exhausted, irritable, and unable to concentrate. Dr. Slobodinsky offers a well-rounded treatment that addresses the underlying issues so you can get a good night’s rest.
