Let’s face it: snoring is not attractive and can seriously affect your ability to get a good night’s rest. Some researchers have estimated that over 80 million people in North America snore each night, which makes snoring a widespread annoyance. A few of the most common causes of snoring include:
- Sleep apnea
- Alcohol consumption
- Being overweight
- Certain sedatives or sleep aids

Because snoring can be a symptom of sleep apnea, a serious health disorder, it is important to consult with our dentist, Dr. Reichman, or your physician prior to treatment.
