According to statistics, 40% of Canadians snore, a disturbing disorder for those around you that worsens with time, age and weight gain.
Snoring is the sound of a person's breathing when they sleep. When we sleep, our tongue and the tissues in the back of the throat relax, which can lead to snoring in some people. Although snoring affects mostly men, women and even children snore, which can exacerbate attention deficit disorders, for example.
Although not an immediate health threat, snoring can create relationship struggles for couples. It can also signal the presence of obstructive sleep apnea.
Certain conditions can cause or amplify snoring, such as:
- Being overweight
- Having large tonsils
- Respiratory tract infections
Proven solutions like nasal cones and oral appliances can stop snoring. Getting your health condition checked through an in-depth examination will determine the treatment that applies to your situation.
