Dr. Stack Restores Marital Harmony in Greenville

Posted · Add Comment

Snoring Do you snore? Has your spouse told you to go sleep on the couch more times than you’d like to admit? Snoring is annoying – to everyone within earshot. But it can also be a sign of a more serious condition called obstructive sleep apnea. In Greenville SC, Dr. Jason Stack helps restore peaceful slumber – and happy marriages – with non-invasive snoring and sleep apnea therapy!

Why do I snore?

When we sleep, air passageways and tissues can relax and fall in on each other. As air is forced through a narrowed passage, tissue vibrates and causes the sound we call snoring.

When does sleep apnea occur?

An apnea episode occurs when breathing stops during sleep. A sleep apnea sufferer may experience hundreds of these episodes each night. When the brain senses a lack of oxygen, it wakes the body up and tells it to breathe. Some folks wake up completely while others enter a slighter stage of sleep – both resulting in diminished restorative slumber.

What are the hazards of sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea has been linked to an increased risk of:

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Headaches
  • Impotence
  • Memory difficulties

How does Dr. Stack treat sleep apnea and snoring?

Greenville’s Dr. Stack utilizes custom oral appliance therapy to combat snoring and reduce the health risks of sleep apnea. A small, comfortable snore guard worn at night holds the jaw in a comfortable position and keeps airways open. No surgery, no CPAP – just comfortable treatment and restful sleep.
