How we can help:
We specialize in snoring treatment and sleep apnea treatment, such as the Pillar Procedure. The way you sleep has a large impact on your health. Snoring resulting in sleep deprivation can cause irritability, daytime sleepiness, decreased productivity, mood changes, and increased health problems. If snoring is so loud it disturbs your bed partner, you may be sleeping in separate bedrooms. Sleeping in separate bedrooms is not a cure for snoring; it can actually lead to strained relationships and loss of intimacy. If snoring is affecting the quality of your life and relationship, there is help available at Atlanta Snoring Institute!
