Disrupted sleep can impact virtually every aspect of your life. In fact, not getting enough sleep at night can make it difficult to concentrate on important tasks during the day, can make you feel groggy and irritable, and can contribute to feeling drowsy at inappropriate or even dangerous times – like when you’re driving, for example. Most people who experience disrupted sleep suffer from loud snoring, but others have a much more serious condition called sleep apnea. Sleep apnea occurs when a person stops breathing for 10 seconds or more while sleeping – a condition which can be quite serious if left untreated. If you experience minor to moderate snoring that is negatively impacting your sleep, Dr. Parma may recommend an oral appliance to wear while you sleep. This type of device has been shown to be both comfortable and effective. Dr. Parma is pleased to offer a free snoring treatment evaluation for his patients from throughout the San Antonio, TX, area.
