Rest Easy With Dr. Doneskey
If you think you might need treatment for snoring, you’re not alone. Snoring is a common sleep disturbance that affects almost 90 million Americans. It can aggravate the people closest to you, especially your sleeping partner.
Snoring can leave you with a sore throat or headache and can be an indicator of more serious health concerns such as sleep apnea. Luckily, Dr. Doneskey provides expert guidance and snoring treatment at our Bellevue, WA office.
Causes of Snoring
Almost everyone snores occasionally. Snoring is not necessarily indicative of another health problem. Common causes of snoring may include:
- Sedative medication
- Smoking cigarettes
- Chronic nasal congestion
- Head and neck anatomy (deviated septum)
- Being overweight/obese
- Sleep apnea
Other factors make you more prone to snoring as well. Men are statistically more likely to snore than women. Some prescription medications can cause temporary snoring. While snoring doesn’t necessarily indicate a sleep disorder, it can be a sign of a deeper issue. If you’re looking for treatment for snoring, Dr. Doneskey is one of the best sleep dentists in Bellevue for the job.
