Snoring & Sleep Apnea
Nonsurgical Treatments for Snoring and Sleep Apnea
Are you losing sleep because you snore? Do you think you may have sleep apnea?
Snoring is sometimes the source of jokes and laughter, but more commonly it is a source of frustration. Many times, snoring is addressed due to a bed partner’s fatigue or discomfort, but snoring can actually be a sign of a much more serious problem for the snorer.
Loud snoring and other symptoms such as frequent gaps in breathing during sleep or not feeling refreshed after a night’s sleep can often mean you have sleep apnea. This is a common sleep disorder that can be potentially serious and even life-threatening.
Nasal obstruction, chronic sinus disorders, and chronic nasal allergies are frequent causes of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
At the Nasal & Sinus Center of Austin, we feature state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and our own sleep study lab to help diagnose your sleep or snoring problem. Our Austin ENT doctors have extensive training and years of experience in the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea. They will assess your condition to determine the cause and most effective solution to improve your sleep.
These are nonsurgical treatment options for snoring and sleep apnea that you can implement at home, or you might need a simple, office-based procedure that can be performed in the comfort of our office. If you need surgery to treat your sleep or snoring problem, our doctors can conveniently perform surgery at our own outpatient surgery center.
