Snoring, or sleep apnea, is the hoarse or harsh sound that occurs when air flows past relaxed tissues in your throat, causing the tissues to vibrate as you breathe. Nearly everyone snores now and then, but for some people it can be a chronic problem. Sometimes it may also indicate a serious health condition. In addition to the Brooklyn snoring treatment, lifestyle changes, such as losing weight, avoiding alcohol close to bedtime or sleeping on your side, can help stop snoring. Specialized medical devices and surgery are available that may reduce disruptive snoring. However, these aren’t suitable or necessary for everyone who snores. Snoring is often associated with a sleep disorder called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Not all snorers have OSA, but if snoring is accompanied by any of the following symptoms, it may be an indication to see a doctor for further evaluation for OSA: witnessed breathing pauses during sleep, excessive daytime sleepiness, difficulty concentrating, morning headaches, sore throat upon awakening, restless sleep, gasping or choking at night, high blood pressure, and chest pain at night.
The Brooklyn snoring treatment involves a full course of NightLase which consists of three to four separate treatment sessions over a 6-9 week period. The final results of the treatment have been shown to last up to a year, and the therapy can be repeated. Patients find NightLase to be a highly comfortable and satisfying solution. NightLase requires no device to be worn during sleep and involves no chemical treatment. It’s a gentle and easy way to regain a good night’s rest. Give Dr. Ghatan a call today for a restful night’s sleep.
