The air passing through the partially collapsed airway can cause a vibrating sound known as snoring.

Snoring Treatment FAQ

When should I see a doctor about my snoring?

While some occasional snoring is completely normal, excessive amounts of it can be unhealthy. We usually recommend for patients to schedule a consultation with us if their snoring is causing drowsiness during the daytime or is negatively impacting their ability to focus. It is also incredibly important to visit us if your partner notices that you cease to breathe during certain points of the night.

How much does snoring treatment cost?

The exact price of snoring treatment will differ from patient to patient depending on their needs and form of treatment. During your visit, we'll be able to create a completely customized treatment plan, which will allow us to prove a more detailed idea of a cost estimate.

Is snoring treatment covered by medical insurance?

Snoring treatment may be covered by your insurance in cases where sleep apnea is affecting your ability to breathe. We'll work with you and your insurance agency in order to verify your coverage. For patients that don't have insurance, we can help in finding financing plans that fit within their budget.

How Serious is Snoring?

Snoring alone is not necessarily detrimental to your health. It may, however, be the sign of a more serious condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). While not everyone who snores suffers from sleep apnea, SomnoMed suggests that if you have been heard to gasp for breath or have sudden spells of drowsiness during the day, then you should obtain a referral to a qualified specialist.
