How Snoring Can Negatively Affect Your Sleep

Snoring can be an underlying symptom of sleep apnea.

Snoring isn’t just a loud noise that keeps your partner awake. Did you know that it can actually negatively impact your quality of sleep and overall health as well? Not only may it be disrupting your partner’s sleep, but it can eventually impact your own, leading to daytime sleepiness, fatigue and irritability. It can also be the underlying result of sleep apnea – a disorder that can cause you to stop breathing while you sleep.

What is Sleep Apnea and How Does it Relate to Snoring?

Chronic snoring can be an underlying condition of sleep apnea which can increase your risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. Seeking treatment can help improve your sleep quality and overall well-being.

Snoring Constricts Your Airways

Snoring may just seem like an annoying habit, but it can indicate a more serious issue. It occurs when air can’t properly travel through your mouth or nose. When the airway is constricted, it can cause the air to be inhaled at a higher rate and pressure, causing the tissues at the back of your throat to vibrate and make a loud sound. But, it can also cause your breathing to stop completely multiple times throughout the night. If left untreated, other health issues can arise and you may require surgery.

Signs You May Have Sleep Apnea

You’re not alone – sleep apnea is more common than you think. In fact, it’s the most common sleep-related breathing disorder. Symptoms to be aware of include:

  • Loud snoring
  • Waking up with headaches frequently 
  • Waking up with sore/dry throat
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Waking up in the night choking/gasping
  • Trouble focusing throughout the day
  • High blood pressure

Sleep Apnea Appliances

There are a few ways that sleep apnea can be treated including a CPAP machine, dental appliances, and NightLase® therapy.In our dental office here in Erin Mills, we utilize NightLase® therapy – a non-invasive laser treatment that works to tighten the tissue that causes contractions, increase the production of new collagen in the palette, and lighten the effects of sleep apnea. While it’s not permanent, it does last approximately 12-24 months and will require annual treatments.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

The third molars, or wisdom teeth, can often erupt at odd angles, becoming impacted and interfering with other teeth. Since this can cause a wide range of issues, impacted wisdom teeth must be removed. This may be necessary even if you are currently experiencing no overt problems, since they may get worse over time. Wisdom tooth extraction may require additional surgery to remove gum tissue partially or entirely covering your tooth.

You may be in pain, but your dental Emergency is our priority. We offer emergency services for any tooth damage or misfortune that happens.

You should not feel pain during the procedure, but you may feel a mild warm sensation, therefore, you won’t need to be put to sleep or be given anesthesia.

Ultimately, NightLase® can reduce your snoring and improve your sleep quality (and your partner’s sleep quality)!

Broken or Partially Dislodged Tooth

If you have a broken tooth, do not hesitate to get help! Place an ice pack on the area and take ibuprofen for any pain. You can also use cold compresses in order to prevent major swelling from occurring which will heighten your discomfort even more. Seek medical attention immediately if needed because this is something that should be taken seriously since it could cause permanent damage.
