The Dental Center, LLC Helps Patients to Stop Snoring and Manage Obstructive Sleep Apnea
However, I hear couples complain all the time in my practice. They come in for a snoring test appointment, and within seconds the husband makes a comment such as, “My wife made me come.” Snoring is more common in men than women, but the reverse is also common. The snoring spouse who feels “dragged” to the doctor’s office is resentful that his or her snoring problem can’t be left alone. The spouse that does the dragging-in is frustrated and tired. Ordinarily affectionate couples can have a strain in their relationship caused by snoring. Sometimes if it wasn’t for their spouse, a snorer wouldn’t even know they had a problem.

A new study has claimed snoring while pregnancy is linked to smaller babiesPhoto: ALAMY (POSED BY MODEL) By Nick Collins , Science Correspondent 7:00PM GMT 31 Oct 2013 Comments In the largest study to date of the link between maternal snoring and baby health, researchers found that snoring for three or more nights per week was a warning sign of both smaller babies and C-sections. Women who snored before and during pregnancy were at greatest risk, with a two thirds greater chance of having a baby in the bottom ten per cent of birth weight than non-snorers, and twice the chance of needing an elective C-section. But even women who only started snoring during pregnancy were still at greater risk of both outcomes than women who did not snore at all, the study found. Snoring could be a warning sign of health problems such as obstructive sleep apnoea, a breathing problem which lowers blood oxygen levels at night, as well as high blood pressure and preeclampsia, researchers explained. The study of 1,673 pregnant women, published in the Sleep journal, found that 35 per cent of women reported habitual snoring during pregnancy.

Snoring while pregnant linked to smaller babies
Barbara Honor and Dr. Brian Bell. An appliance is placed in the mouth and worn much like a sports mouth protector. The appliance prevents the collapse of the tongue and soft tissues at the rear of the throat so the airway remains open while asleep. By simply promoting enough air intake, the device allows snorers to get some rest.
