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.

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.
