Can Heavy Snoring be Cured?

Diagnosis/Treatment: Those who snore in any position or who are disruptive to the family, should seek medical advice to ensure that sleep apnea is not a problem. An otolaryngologist will provide a thorough examination of the nose, mouth, throat , palate, and neck. A sleep study in a laboratory environment may be necessary to determine how serious the snoring is and what effects it has on the snorer's overall health.

Treatment for snoring depends on the diagnosis. An examination will determine if the snoring is caused by obstructive sleep apnea, deformity, infection, nasal allergy, or tonsils and adenoids.

Your snoring or obstructive sleep apnea may respond to various treatments now offered by many otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeons.
