Snoring is a widespread problem that is believed to affect over 45 million Americans. Snoring alone, even without sleep apnea, is associated with significant health risks. Patients who snore often awake after an unsatisfying, disrupted sleep to encounter a day of sleepiness, fatigue, and irritability. In addition to lifestyle challenges, patients who snore have been shown to have increased rates of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, and diabetes. Snoring may also have a severe impact on interpersonal relationships, with as many as 80% of snoring couples ending up in separate bedrooms.
Fortunately, there are many effective treatment options for patients who snore. Many of these are simple and non-invasive. Some rely on basic lifestyle changes, while others target obstructive anatomy.
