Your dog does it, your hamster can do it, and even that hummingbird in your backyard can do it. We’re talking about snoring. And while it is one of the more common animal behaviors, do we know what causes it? Turns out a variety of factors could be causing your, or your sleeping dog’s, snoring. It also turns out you don’t have to go night after night snoring – there is a solution!
According to Lynn A. D’Andrea, a sleep specialist at the University of Michigan Medical School, “[Snoring] is the combination of turbulent airflow through the hypotonic airway structures that results in the harsh vibratory noise known as snoring.”
But get this – snoring is not an illness. It is merely a symptom and you may be experiencing snoring because of something else. One of the more common causes of snoring is obstructive sleep apnea (60-70 million Americans experience this), which is a disorder causing gaps or pauses in a person’s breathing during sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea and snoring leads to fatigue, waking up exhausted and overall less quality of sleep. Sound familiar?
If your partner has requested you sleep in the other room nightly, or you find yourself dozing off at work, it might be time to take care of your snoring and sleep apnea.
Thousands of Americans find solutions like the CPAP machine, medication and surgery to be effective, but you don’t need to connect to a machine, take pharmaceutical drugs or go under the knife to remedy your snoring.
At Sleep Rehab, our Board Certified Professionals use non-invasive, non-surgical and non-pharmaceutical solutions and come up with a customized treatment plan for you. Contact us today to find out your options and stop this snoring today!

No treatment is right for every patient, but if you’re suffering from sleep apnea, oral appliance therapy can offer significant improvement in the quality and quantity of sleep. Many patients with sleep apnea struggle to adjust to treatment using the more traditional continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. For these patients and those who don’t achieve adequate improvement in sleep using CPAP alone, an oral appliance may provide effective treatment to help you get a good night’s sleep.

Snoring may be something that people joke about, but in truth it can be a sign of a much more serious medical condition called sleep apnea. That annoying sound that emanates from the mouth while you sleep is caused by the vibration of soft tissue in your throat as air passes by. Bigger problems arise, however, when this same tissue blocks your airway. To treat snoring and sleep apnea in Plano, TX, Dr. Keane Fedosky at Sleep Rehab will create a customized oral appliance that helps maintain an open airway so you can breathe and sleep at night.

How’d you sleep last night? If the answer to that question is something along the lines of, “I think I slept, but I feel so tired all the time,” then the culprit may be sleep apnea. This medical condition causes temporary pauses in breathing throughout the night. There are two types of sleep apnea. The less common is called central sleep apnea and occurs because the brain fails to signal muscles to breathe. The more common is obstructive sleep apnea, which happens when soft tissue in your throat blocks your airway. Either type can have serious health consequences including heart disease. To reduce the risk of heart disease and treat sleep apnea, Dallas residents turn to Dr. Keane Fedosky and his team at Sleep Rehab.

If you had to guess the percentage of couples that sleep separately at night because one person snores, what would you say? Perhaps you’re a romantic, so you’ll guess low at five percent. Or maybe you’re more of a realist, so you think 10 or 15 percent might be accurate. Well, studies indicate that some 25 percent of couples are willing to report that they sleep separately, so researchers believe the actual percentage is likely much higher. Moreover, that snoring can be a sign of a more serious condition called sleep apnea. If you sleep with a snorer (or if you don’t because you’re in another room), then contact Sleep Rehab. Dr. Fedosky and his team treat sleep apnea in Dallas, TX, and the surrounding communities, so everyone can sleep well and together.
