Sleep Apnea & Snoring

Snoring is noise caused by constricted airways during sleep. When you breathe normally, you may notice that your breath is silent. Air passes quietly through the nose and past the flexible structures in the back of the throat, such as, the soft palate, uvula, tonsils and tongue. While you are awake, muscles hold the airway open, which is why there is no noise. When you fall asleep, these muscles relax, but the airway should stay open with no additional sound.

We have special training here at Greenbrier to properly deal with sleep and snoring problems. If you or someone you know snores or has trouble sleeping, then consider giving us a call and scheduling an appointment.
