Have you been waking up feeling exhausted, no matter how much sleep you get? At first, you might feel more frustrated than anything else. But over time, a lack of quality sleep can have a number of negative effects on your overall well-being. From problems concentrating, to headaches and even depression, there are a number of potentially serious side effects of struggling with a sleeping disorder. Fortunately, if obtrusive sleep apnea is to blame, your dentist may be able to help. By treating the sleep apnea, a dentist could actually help improve your overall functioning. So if you’re tired of feeling tired every morning, it is time to consult with a dentist, who may be able to diagnose and treat obtrusive sleep apnea!
What Are the Symptoms of Sleep Apnea?
In addition to fatigue and irritability, sufferers of sleep apnea also commonly struggle with headaches, an inability to pay attention during the day (or worsened ADHD), high blood pressure, heart problems (including a heightened risk of heart attacks and heart failure), and even increased risk of stroke. Clearly, it is important to treat sleep apnea, if you have it.
Fortunately, treatment is often minimally invasive and effective. The use of a custom mouthguard is often all that is required to keep a person’s passage way clear as he or she sleeps. Your dentist can take precise measurements to craft a SomnoDent Oral Appliance that will help ensure your jaw rests comfortably as you sleep, and in a way that allows ample air flow. That way you are able to sleep through the night, and give your body the rest it desperately needs.
