Dr. Parnes Offers Snoring and Sleep Apnea Solutions

LogoSnoring doesn’t seem like a serious problem, however, recent sleep studies have shown that snoring can be harmful because the sleeper can’t get enough air while sleeping. “When we sleep, our jaw muscles relax, the jaw slips back, allowing the tongue and soft palate to obstruct the airway. Our breathing is then more forceful, vibrating the soft tissues of the upper airway, which results in snoring,” explains Dr. Parnes.
