Sleep apnea and snoring affects daily life.

Are you waking up every night gasping for air?
You’re not alone; habitual snoring is common.
About 25% of adults snore almost every night and about 50% snore occasionally. Snoring can lead to less sleep, strained relationships, and can even be the cause of other dangerous health risks.
Why am I snoring?
Snoring can be caused by a few different things but typically, snoring occurs when the air that passes through the back of the mouth and nose becomes turbulent due to some sort of obstruction. The airflow causes vibrations that generate the sounds that interrupt both you and your partner’s sleep.

Snoring can be a sign of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea occurs when the upper airway collapses during sleep. This interrupts breathing and can last for seconds or even minutes. This results in poor quality of sleep and can lead to many other health risks:
