What is snoring?
Snoring is the raspy sound that occurs as you breathe when sleeping. The throat has soft tissues that vibrate when air flows in and out of the body. These vibrations are what cause hoarse sounds known as snoring. While nearly everyone snores on and off at some point in their life, for some individuals, snoring can be a chronic issue. It may also be a symptom of an underlying health problem. In many cases, snoring is linked to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). At Cross Timbers ENT, we offer home sleep studies to evaluate the underlying cause of your snoring. To set up an appointment, call our Arlington, Midlothian, or Mansfield, TX office today.
"Cross Timbers ENT opened a new location in Midlothian late 2022. Prior to this, I had been visiting their location in Mansfield. Since I reside in the Midlothian area, the convenience is great, however, the greatest attribute of the Midlothian location is the care and attention you are welcomed with when you enter the reception area where you are "happily and sincerely" greeted by Kristina Dakof and/or Kayla Burnett. These two ladies, without hesitation, will and do entertain all of your questions, assist with your scheduling needs and do their absolute best to ensure your experience with Cross Timbers Midlothian is the very best it can be. Having Kristina and Kayla as the first and last contacts the customer interacts with is a win/win for the customer and Midlothian Cross Timbers. They are two exceptionally talented associates whom Cross Timbers is fortunate to have in its employment!!!"- R.R. / Google / Jan 13, 2023
"I have experienced many ENT Doctors and office staff, this office staff and Doctors are hands down the best! They listen to patients needs and give true honest answers and care. Our normal Doctor did not have an appointment open, so we scheduled with the PA Tyler Shaw. He was great! He he gave the same level of care the Doctor would have. Excellent job!!"- K.C. / Google / Jan 10, 2023

How is snoring treated?
The first step in treating chronic snoring is to undergo a sleep study at Cross Timbers ENT. From there, we can review the findings and discuss treatment options. Typically, snoring can be alleviated with certain lifestyle changes, like reducing alcohol consumption, losing weight, and sleeping on your side. We may also recommend using a nasal decongestant, oral appliance, or surgery. Depending on your current health, quality of sleep, age, and personal preferences, different therapies may be considered.
