How Snoring Affects the People Around You
Your snoring can take a heavy toll on the people around you, especially your spouse or sleep partner. In fact, heavy snoring may keep your partner awake at night, creating tension that tears at the fabric of a relationship.
Sharing a bed with someone who snores often results in chronic sleeplessness for a spouse or sleep partner. This can adversely affect a person’s mood, cognitive abilities, and even their health. Common side effects for people who sleep with a heavy snorer include irritability, depressed immune system, and high blood pressure.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are snoring and sleep apnea related?
While snoring is one of the most common and noticeable symptoms of sleep apnea, not everyone who snores suffers from the disorder. If you snore frequently, we recommend getting a sleep test to make sure it isn’t a sign of sleep apnea.
Even if you don’t have sleep apnea, Dr. Scumacher can help treat your snoring with a convenient oral appliance. Snoring can affect your relationship with your partner and drive them to seek a different place to sleep, so it’s crucial to relieve your symptoms.
Can snoring be stopped?
Yes! We’ve helped many patients eliminate snoring with the help of treatment. Our convenient oral appliances move your jaw forward while you sleep to open your airway, so you can rest peacefully and silently. Dr. Schumacher can also recommend some lifestyle changes that will help reduce your snoring. Some of these include losing weight, reducing alcohol consumption, stopping the use of sedatives before bed, and quitting smoking.
