Sleep Disorders and Snoring


Eastern Connecticut Ear, Nose & Throat has some of the most well-recognized sleep disorder and sleep apnea specialists in Eastern Connecticut. We make it our mission to get to the root cause of your issue, diagnose the problem outright, and prescribe the best treatments available at our modern, fully-equipped snoring centers. Through our efforts, we have helped countless families and individuals find the peaceful sleep they need, and now, we want to help you too.

SLEEP APNEA:

There are multiple causes of sleep apnea including tonsil enlargement, nasal blockage, cysts or tumors in the throat, and obesity. Sleep apnea is associated with an increased risk of hypertension, congestive heart failure, and other cardiopulmonary problems. It has also been shown to increase chances of an automobile accident through a decreased reaction time.

We have the expertise to diagnose these conditions and recommend the right treatments. Treatment may involve nasal CPAP, lifestyle modifications, and surgical procedures. One effective surgical procedure we offer is the Pillar Procedure. This involves implanting material in the palate to stiffen it, which decreases the vibration that often causes snoring.

SNORING:

It is estimated that 1 in 4 people snore. Snoring occurs when the muscles of the palate and uvula relax during sleep. The result is physical obstruction to normal breathing. Snoring is not only socially disruptive to family life - causing other family members sleepless nights and making the snorer the object of ridicule – but it can also be hazardous to one's health in the long run.
