Is snoring ruining your relationship? Do you snore or do you know someone who snores? It is estimated that about 90 million North Americans snore and under 40 million probably suffer through the night from a partner who snores.
Clinical studies show if you are a heavier snorer, you can suffer from high blood pressure, premature heart attacks, impotence, and chronic fatigue. All these symptoms are associated with oxygen loss and breathing interruption often seen in heavy snorers, but sometimes a snore is more than a roar. It may be a sign of a more serious problem: obstructive sleep apnea.
Now there are simple, easy-to-wear dental appliances that have been proven effective in clinical tests for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea.
We have added information in a downloadable format (pdf) giving you a little insight as to what snoring and obstructive sleep apnea are all about. Included with the information is a quiz.
Answering these simple questions may be the first step to a restful night's sleep for you and your family. We recommend that you discuss these questions with your family members, as they may be the first to recognize these signs.
