Have you woken up in the night more times than you can count, all because of your significant other’s extremely loud snoring? If so, you may have much more than a disturbance on your hands. Snoring could be a symptom of a dangerous sleeping condition known as sleep apnea. Obstructive Sleep Apnea occurs because a person’s passageway becomes blocked during the night, due to a shift in the soft tissue. This can lead to increasingly poor rest, for both the sufferer of OSA and anyone trying to sleep nearby. Fortunately, your dentist can likely help you both sleep better, through minimally invasive sleep apnea treatment.
Don’t Ignore Symptoms of OSA
Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a dangerous condition, one that can lead to increased blood pressure and heightened risk of stroke and heart disease. It can also lead to fatigue, irritability and even depression, which can negatively impact your personal relationships and your business success. In other words, there can be both physical and emotional symptoms of sleep apnea, ones that should not be ignored.
Fortunately, OSA treatment can help to address both, not to mention help improve the overall quality of sleep.
What Treatment Is Right for You?
Many doctors recommend Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Machines as sleep apnea treatment. Unfortunately, these can be cumbersome and loud. Sleep devices, like SomnoDent Sleep Solutions, provide a less invasive alternative, though. Fortunatley, they can still prove just as effective.
To find out if a sleep appliance could be the solution you or your loved one need, schedule a consultation with your dentist.
