The tongue and throat tissue may be large enough to vibrate while breathing during sleep causing the snoring sounds.

Diagnosing Snoring Snoring, or the more serious obstructive sleep apnea, OSA, is properly diagnosed by an initial screening followed by a home or in-lab sleep test. Doctors trained in sleep medicine review the test results.

Treatment Depending on sleep test results, an oral sleep appliance or a CPAP mask may be prescribed.

CPAP Tolerance Issues? The American Academy of Sleep Medicine has determined that using a professionally fitted and adjusted oral appliance can be an effective alternative for CPAP users who cannot tolerate using a CPAP device. Dentists with advance training in sleep medicine can construct your customized oral appliance.

"I've been seeing Dr. Marx for my dental care for several years. It's always a good experience and affordable. A few months ago I had Dr. Marx make a Clear Sleep dental device for me. I had been having trouble sleeping and realized I had sleep apnea, including gasping, choking, headaches, jaw pain, sore palate, all day sleepiness, trouble concentrating and driving. I would wake up nearly every hour and only get 3 hours of sleep at the most. My sleep has improved to 6-7 hours a night. All other problems are gone too. It's the best thing ever!"
