Do you or a loved one snore? It can be really hard to get a good night’s sleep with someone snoring next to you. It can also be very hard to feel rested if you are the one who snores.

We serve several areas in WNY including East Aurora, Niagara Falls, Dunkirk, Hamburg, Orchard Park, Lancaster, and Olean.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is more than just snoring. People who snore once in a while might be doing so because of a cold or the position that they are in while they sleep. Sleep apnea is a disorder that has more to do with medical issues. Your brain may be sending bad signals to your brain that cause you to have sleep apnea. You may also have an issue with your throat muscles that cause obstruction while you sleep.
Symptoms of Sleep Apnea
Snoring is far from the only symptom of sleep apnea. You might have a roommate, spouse, or partner tell you that you have moments while you sleep where it sounds like you are choking, or you stop breathing. This is a fairly common sign of sleep apnea. Waking up feeling unrested is also an indication that you might be suffering from sleep apnea.
Treatments for Snoring
The most common medical device you will receive after being diagnosed with sleep apnea is going to be a CPAP machine that goes over your airways while you sleep. It forces air into your airways to stop you from snoring and keeps you breathing through the night. When you have a CPAP, you are reducing your risk of dying from your sleep apnea.
