Snoring Is Bad For You And The For The People You Sleep With

Snoring is a common problem that affects many people. Snoring can be a symptom of a more serious condition called sleep apnea, which reduces sleep quality, causes fatigue or tiredness or sleepiness, and is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, and other health issues.


But that is not all - snoring can also affect their spouse, bed partner, or roommate who shares the same sleeping space:

Lee and Fay have been married for five years, but they sleep in separate bedrooms because of Lee's loud snoring. Fay is a light sleeper and has trouble falling and staying asleep when Lee snores. This has caused tension in their relationship, and they miss the intimacy of sleeping together.

Samantha and Raj have been married for 15 years, and Raj's snoring has become worse with age. Samantha has tried earplugs and noise-cancelling headphones, but she still wakes up several times each night because of Raj's snoring. This has caused her to feel irritable and fatigued during the day, which has impacted her work and home life.

Haris and his young family enjoy going on road trips for their holidays, but sharing a room during these trips can be a challenge. Haris's loud snoring can keep his children awake at night, so they try to go to bed before he falls asleep.

Noor and Siti are college roommates. Noor is embarrassed by her snoring. She tries to stay up late and fall asleep after Siti does so that Siti won't hear her snoring. However, this causes Noor to feel tired during the day, and she has trouble staying focused in class.


In short, snoring can have a significant impact on the quality of life for both the snorer and their bed partner. If snoring is affecting your relationship or causing other health concerns, it is important to seek medical attention and explore treatment options.


The First Choice Treatment for Snoring

One of the possible treatment solutions for snoring is a custom dental sleep device. The Australasian Sleep Association has issued a position statement in January 2023 which states that custom dental sleep devices should be recommended as a first line treatment for snoring. Custom dental sleep devices are also known as mandibular advancement devices (MAD) or mandibular advancement splints (MAS).


If you or your partner are struggling with snoring, consult our Dental Sleep Medicine-trained dentist, Dr Larry Au-Yong, from Sim & Hooi Dental Clinic, to find out how custom dental sleep devices can help you and your sleeping partners have peaceful sleep, night after night.
