Effective Ways To Treat Snoring

Posted by C/V ENT Surgical Group on Dec 27, 2019 10:10:06 AM

Snoring may be the focus of some jokes and cartoons, but for people who snore and those who live with them, it is not a laughing matter.

Approximately 90 million American adults snore, 37 million on a regular basis. Some causes of snoring are temporary such as pregnancy or upper respiratory distress caused by a cold or the flu. Persistent snoring needs to be addressed, and there are many remedies. Some require making minor changes; others require medical intervention.
