What Causes Sleep Disorders and Snoring?
When you sleep, air should pass easily through the nose and nasal cavity into the trachea and lungs. Breathing should be relaxed and consistent in order for you to feel rested. Sleep disorders and snoring may indicate that there are blockages or other issues that make breathing difficult or labored during sleep. Sleep disorders and snoring may be temporary, such as when you drink alcohol, are stressed, or experience other life situations. Chronic sleep disorders and snoring that disrupts sleep should be evaluated and treated by Dr. Ayala.
What Are Sleep Disorder Treatments?
Sleep disorders happen for many reasons. Dr. Ayala is board eligible in sleep medicine and specializes in sleep disorders that are caused by issues within the nose and throat. Treatments for these disorders aim to remove blockages, help tissues relax, and improve the flow of air into and out of the lungs.
