A large tongue with a small mouth can create blockage of the airways during sleep. This can lead to snoring and sleep apnea. Fortunately, there are many strategies for sleep apnea care that can help you find relief and a good night’s rest.

Sleep apnea is usually much worse when you are sleeping on your back. One of the biggest risk factors with sleep apnea is that the tongue can slip back into the throat and block oxygen for a very long time, sometimes as long as ninety seconds.

Partial blockage is what leads to the noise of snoring. A complete blockage is sleep apnea. Consult with us, The Snore Experts, to learn more about sleep apnea care. Contact us to schedule a consultation.
