Has someone close to you told you that you are snoring? Or, do you often find yourself waking up from a sound sleep, gasping for air? If so, our dentist can help you. We understand the causes of sleep apnea and snoring and can offer just the right dental solution to stop disrupting your sleep.
Snoring is No Laughing Matter
People often like to joke about snoring. They may tease you if they find out you snore. But, snoring is not at all funny. Sleep apnea, one of the primary causes of snoring, is a very serious condition. It causes gaps in your ability to breathe because your throat muscles collapse and shut off your airway. The resulting medical problems range from the mildly uncomfortable and annoying to serious, life-threatening conditions, like heart failure.
Protecting Your Health
Sleep apnea treatment can:
- Prevent congestive heart failure, heart attack or stroke
- Decrease high blood pressure
- Reduce symptoms of acid reflux
- Make it easier to control high blood sugar and body weight
- Helps overcome impotence
- Reduce the risk of anxiety, depression, and dementia
- Reduce the severity of respiratory diseases, including asthma
- Reduce the risk of driving accidents
- Improve your memory and reflexes
Custom-Fitting A Sleep Apnea Dental Device
Fortunately, there are ways to minimize or eliminate the medical problems that sleep apnea can cause. We can create and custom-fit a dental device that helps you get the air you need while you sleep.
Sleep apnea dental devices provide a quieter, more comfortable alternative to the CPAP machines doctors often prescribe to sleep apnea sufferers. Unlike the devices you might see on TV or over-the-counter, the devices we create for you are backed by science, custom-fitted, and adjustable to your mouth to ensure your comfort, well-being and safety.
Benefit #1: Alleviating Symptoms of Oxygen Deprivation
As you use your professional-quality sleep apnea dental device, you will likely notice some significant changes in your daily comfort. Since sleep apnea always causes some level of oxygen deprivation, treating it can eliminate many problems associated with not getting enough air into your lungs. Painful headaches often disappear if a lack of oxygen caused them. And with no more gasping or snoring during the night, you can wake up feeling more relaxed and well-rested.
Benefit #2: Keeping You Safer on The Road
Sleep apnea disrupts your deepest, most restful sleep. Because we fully comprehend sleep apnea ramifications, we understand why you might have problems with your driving from time to time. You might experience symptoms like slow reflexes and impaired judgment at times, even if you do not realize it at the moment. When this happens, your driving ability can become impaired to the point that you are more likely to have auto accidents. You might even fall asleep while driving if you get tired enough. Our sleep apnea devices can help you overcome these dangers by allowing you to get the sleep you need.
Benefit #3: Timing is Key
In addition to overcoming your medical and safety issues related to sleep apnea, there is nothing quite as refreshing as getting a good night sleep. When you choose our dentist-approved and custom-fitted dental devices, you are saying yes to the most restful sleep you have had since the symptoms of your sleep apnea started. You can not only snooze happily at night, but you can also stay awake and alert throughout the day, with no need for long naps during the day.
