What causes snoring and sleep apnea?

Snoring and sleep apnea are two sleep conditions wherein the airway becomes obstructed (often because of the position of the jaw or tongue) and breathing becomes interrupted. They are troublesome afflictions for both those who have them and those who have to listen to them. People who either snore or have sleep apnea may make loud, obnoxious noises in their sleep.

Snoring

Snoring, although annoying, is more of a nuisance than anything. Many people snore and do not even know it. It’s often a problem for those who have to listen to the snoring and not necessarily for the person who snores.

Sleep apnea

Sleep apnea, on the other hand, is a much more serious condition. Where snoring is simply the vibration of tissues while a sleeping person breathes, sleep apnea is categorized by lapses in breathing and is much more severe. Those with sleep apnea are often at a higher risk to themselves because they may not be getting adequate oxygen intake while they sleep. Sleep apnea can be so intense that it wakes up not only those nearby, but those with sleep apnea themselves. Although it is usually audible and disruptive, people with sleep apnea do not always make noise. This is especially dangerous because those with the affliction may still lack proper oxygen intake, but since they do not make noise their sleep apnea may go undiagnosed. It is possible for cases of sleep apnea to go undiagnosed for far too long.

Most caring dental staff I’ve ever encountered. Every experience has been extremely professional, from just calling to ask a question to cleanings for my whole family and beyond.

Dr. Homann goes out of his way to make sure you understand each step of the process and are comfortable the whole way. Each member of their team genuinely cares about their patients, and knowing I will have the best care every time I walk in the door makes going to the dentist a whole lot easier. Thank you to all the kind and wonderful staff, you make all the difference.

Dr. Homan is the best dentist I've ever been to. Most of my co-workers go to Dr. Homan and that's how I heard about him.

I needed a lot of work on my teeth and I'm so glad I found such a great dentist. He explains everything to you and also is very upfront on all posibiltys that's can happen to the tooth he works on and also explains what you can expect after the dental work. He's also very friendly and everyone at the office makes you feel comfortable. Karen and Sandra in the front office are wonderful as well. They also have wonderful dental hygienist. My insurance is not in network with Dr. Homan but it's well worth the extra money to still go to the best!

Dr. Homann's practice is very clean and up to date. His practice also has televisions to watch when you are getting your teeth cleaned or any other work done which is awesome!

The chairs are very comfortable and the staff is very polite. Dr. Homann is also a very knowledgeable dentist with the ability to make every patient feel calm and comfortable no matter what the situation. He also has done volunteer work for the homeless donating his time and resources to help the less fortunate, if that doesn't let you know what kind of practice this is I don't know what will. I will definitely be coming back here again!
