Loud Snoring Caused by Sleep Apnea
In the morning, the build-up of carbon dioxide in the blood causes headaches. And the lack of deep sleep can leave one drowsy and usually grouchy, during the day.
During sleep apnea, the upper air passages in the mouth and throat are obstructed (no one is sure why). One form of treatment that has proven successful is wearing an acrylic appliance during sleep to keep air passages open. It’s comfortable and easy to use.
