Causes of snoring
At night while you are sleeping, your body and muscles relax including those in and around your throat. This relaxation can cause loose or excess tissue in the upper airway to vibrate as air passes over it while breathing resulting in the snoring noise. Snoring can be intermittent or habitual; soft or LOUD. Habitual snoring is nearly always a social problem for a bed partner. Snoring causes a reduction in the QUANTITY and QUALITY of sleep for the person snoring, people in the same bed, same room, and sometimes the same house!
The bed partner of a chronic snorer loses on average one hour of sleep each night! Sleep deprivation can cause irritability, mood swings, low energy, decreased productivity, muddled thinking and even make you unsafe at the wheel while driving. Sleep deprivation can also lead to health problems including compromising the immune system. Many couples resort to sleeping in separate bedrooms due to the annoyance of snoring. This can lead to relationship strain and loss of intimacy. If you are ready to get snoring under control and sleep in the same bedroom again, call us today! Our offices are conviniently located around Passaic, Essex, Morris and Bergen County. Visit our clinic for your eveluation appointment.
