Snoring & Sleep Apnoea
Snoring occurs when the upper airway begins to relax and close during sleep. If severe enough, it can completely block the airway causing a condition called sleep apnoea. This is a serious condition that is most commonly associated with snoring and can lead to many adverse health consequences such as high blood pressure, obesity, fatigue, brain fog, learning difficulties, memory loss and ADHD. Snoring or heavy breathing in children is not normal. At Snowy Mountains Dental, we can help adults and children to access the care that they need in order to improve their sleep.
