Snoring Can Indicate Treatable Sleep Condition : NPR.

I can’t stress this enough.  If you are snoring, your airway is impaired!! Try pulling air through a garden hose and then do the same thing with a straw.  That is the difference between a good airway and that of someone who snores.

As a practicing family dentist in Corpus Christi, TX, I have been taught to recognize who is a probable sleep apnea patient.  There is a simple test called the Epworth Sleepness Scale that you can take.  If you have a high score, you are probably a Sleep Apnea patient.

Call my office for an evaluation for you, your wife and your children (they can have such large tonsils and adenoids that they have sleep apnea). For more information about cosmetic dentistry and gum disease or sleep apnea, visit my website at
