Are you tired of getting your significant other the same Valentine’s Day gift every year? Instead of buying a stale card and a bouquet of flowers, or taking him or her out to a restaurant, surprise that special someone with the gift that keeps on giving—snoring treatment! This year, instead of booking a couples massage, consider couples snoring treatment. Give each other the gift of a good night’s sleep by both getting sleep tested!
Let’s start off with some facts. Roughly 30% of people ages thirty and above snore regularly. This percentage rises to 40% for middle-aged people. Approximately 59% of people have a bed partner that snores. These are figures which have significant repercussions on both the snorer and the bed partner. Your significant other’s snoring habits might affect your quality of sleep. If your significant other snores or suffers from some other sleep-related disorder, he or she may feel inefficient during the day, fall asleep easily, and/or constantly feel tired. Moreover, lack of sleep can cause your significant other to be depressed, moody, and overweight. All of these factors can affect their performance at work or school. The solution? Snoring treatment!
Four Ways to Treat Snoring
Observation is typically the method that initially makes your significant other aware of their snoring issues. Rather than hoping that things will change down the road, taking a proactive approach is key. If your significant other currently snores, the back of their throat can sag as they age, which worsens their snoring and often leads to sleep apnea. Valentine’s Day is all about showing your significant other how much you care about them. Snoring treatment is a gift they will truly appreciate due to the long-term benefits it provides.
There are several measures your significant other can take to treat snoring, including the following: (1) losing weight; (2) avoiding sedatives and alcohol at night; (3) sleeping on their side; and (4) developing better sleep habits. Depending on the severity of their snoring, these measures will likely help but not solve their sleep-related issues. Since losing weight and keeping it off is not easy, the Pasha Snoring & Sinus Center has developed a medically-supervised weight loss program. Guided by an advanced practice-registered nutritionist, we develop a custom weight loss program that is specifically tailored to your significant other’s dietary needs and behavior. Each weight loss program is different. To find the right fit, we assess their body composition, baseline metabolic rate, eating and coping habits, and other factors. Now, wouldn’t you like it if your significant other not only started snoring treatment for Valentine’s Day but also made healthy living a priority?
In-Office Procedures or Surgery
Depending on your significant other’s snoring, an in-office procedure might be the long-term solution both of you are looking for. Dr. Pasha has performed over 1,600 procedures for snoring and sleep apnea. Our philosophy is to choose the least invasive technique with the most effective outcome for each of our patients. This may mean an in-office procedure such as the Pillar Procedure, Uvuloplasty, or Radiofrequency Ablative Therapy of the Turbinate. For more information, visit our In-Office Procedures page. For other individuals, snoring issues may require a more advanced surgical technique such as Transpalatal Advancement Pharyngoplasty. For more information, visit our Surgical Solutions page.
Dental or Oral Appliances
Dental or oral appliances may be recommended for select patients to aid positional snoring. The benefit that dental appliances provide is that they help expand the back of the throat while your significant other sleeps, thus reducing the likelihood of snoring. They are also non-invasive.
The Pasha Snoring & Sinus Center difference ensures that patients are presented with logical and effective solutions that are specific to their situation. Snoring treatment is a Valentine’s Day gift that will strengthen the bond between you and your significant other. If you are both able to get quality sleep on a consistent basis, you will have more time to enjoy each other’s company while feeling refreshed and well-rested. Schedule an appointment with us today so we can start addressing your significant other’s snoring issues immediately. Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your loved one!
