Snoring is a common problem recognized as noisy breathing. Tinnitus, or the ringing sensation in ears, often follows snoring.
Both these conditions may be linked with sleep apnea. Other causes may include viral infections, side effects of certain medications, allergies and alcohol consumption.
These symptoms may be treated by a technique called balloon dilation. It is effective in relieving both snoring and tinnitus.
Balloon dilation is a safe, low-risk surgical intervention for various sinus conditions. Simply put, a physician opens the band of esophageal muscles through a balloon. If snoring is disturbing your sleep patterns, consult our ENT specialists today!
