Melbourne’s Snoring Help, Treatment and Remedies Clinic
Snoring can be more than just loud and unpleasant.
Snoring can greatly impact your sleep and the sleep of your bed partner. It can affect your ability to function during the day, because you aren’t able to get a good night’s sleep. A tendency to snore can be a very embarrassing condition that kills intimacy and libido. It can also be a sign of a much more serious condition known as obstructive sleep apnoea. Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is caused by the obstruction of the upper airway and can be a precursor to more serious major medical conditions including high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.
A snoring clinician can help diagnose the cause
At TMJ Centre Melbourne, we are often able to help people who snore. Our clinic offers expertise from dentistry and chiropractic services and our unique team will seek to understand the root cause of your problem, before proving holistic snoring remedies to suit.
What causes people to snore?
People snore for a wide range of reasons. The cause of this issue generally involves the softer structures of the throat and nasal passages obstructing the airway during sleep, which is why it’s so often tied to sleep apnoea as an early symptom. Irregular airflow can also factor into sleep deprivation and can be caused by a number of possible structural issues, including:
• The muscles of the throat relaxing during sleep
• A misaligned jaw
• The tissues of the airway touching and creating vibrations
• Sleeping on your back, which may result in your tongue dropping to the back of your mouth
If you are someone who is prone to snoring, help is at hand. Some underlying causes – such as those mentioned above – may be addressed by visiting a snoring clinic that specialises in TMJ/TMD.
