Sick and tired of unsatisfying sleep?
Can’t stand your CPAP?
We have the sleep apnea solutions you’re looking for!
Disruptive snoring, chronic fatigue, frequent headaches? Sleep apnea is a likely culprit.
Obstructive sleep apnea prevents sufferers from inhaling enough oxygen while they are asleep. Some people experience as many as 100 breathing disruptions a night. As you would imagine, this makes it difficult for people with sleep apnea to get a good night’s sleep. Long-term sleep apnea also puts sufferers at risk of developing a host of health problems, including:
Chronic sleep apnea increases your risk of suffering from a number of health issues, including:
- High blood pressure
- Heart failure
- Memory problems
Sleep apnea occurs because, during sleep, relaxed oral tissues fall into the patient’s airway, and hamper oxygen intake. If you’re dealing with sleep apnea, your body is actually waking you up momentarily throughout the night in order to “restart” your breathing process.
Timely and effective sleep apnea treatment will help you sleep soundly again, and it will minimize your risk of developing other health issues related to sleep apnea. Our dental team prides itself on offering effective, easy-to-use sleep apnea solutions; we provide welcome alternatives to conventional CPAP treatment!
