Disrupted sleep. Snoring is common. Nearly everyone snores from time to time. For the most part, snoring is just a nuisance for your bed partner. But for some people, snoring can be a chronic problem, not only disrupting the sleep of those around you but putting you at risk for other complications.
Snoring like a freight train? Or a buzz saw? Snoring is noisy breathing that happens when the flow of air through your mouth and nose is blocked. This makes the tissues in your throat vibrate as you breathe, producing the familiar snoring sound.

If you’re struggling with any of the following snoring complications, it’s time to talk to your primary care provider:
