Sleeping and resting in our bedrooms is usually a relaxing activity. It turns dangerous when you or your partner are no longer able to get a good night’s rest. You probably know that snoring upsets sleeps patterns and can keep you and your bed partner awake. DANGER! You are probably aware that severe sleep apnea is associated with significant health risks. Untreated sleep apnea can even lead to early death.
However, did you know that even mild-to-moderate sleep disorders can have serious negative ramifications on your health? At The Snoring Center’s Edina offices, we effectively diagnose and treat snoring problems. In many cases, treatment can take place on the day of the initial consultation.
The Snoring Center takes your snoring and sleep apnea issues very seriously. Snoring can set you up for risks such as:
- Heart Disease
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
- Excess Weight
- Reduced Sexual Satisfaction
- Pregnancy/Fetus Complications
