Sleep Apnea & Snoring
Snoring interrupts that restful quiet sleep which is so important to our good health. Usually people do not hear themselves snore, but snoring can cause disrupted sleep for both the individual that snores and their sleeping partner! This is know as "second hand snoring". It can lead to daytime sleepiness and fatigue, which can affect the ability to function effectively at home and at work, and could lead to health problems. It is important to eliminate snoring so everyone can get a restful night's sleep and maintain good health.
If you snore, you are not alone. Statistics indicate that approximately 40% of adults over the age of 40 snore some or all the time. That number will continue to grow, because the factors that cause snoring continue to be prevalent in our population. Normal, smooth, unobstructed breathing is a key to getting a restful night's sleep! Dr. Stainback has been specially trained in dealing with sleep and snoring problems.
