Are you tired of waking up in the middle of the night to the sound of your significant other’s loud snoring? Snoring can be a major annoyance for anyone near enough to hear it. Unfortunately, it can also be an early indicator that a person is suffering from a dangerous condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea. OSA is a condition marked by lapses in breathing, which are caused when the soft tissues shift and block a person’s airway. This results in temporarily lapses in breathing that can occur dozens of times in a single night. Not only does this lead to poor sleep, but it can also lead to ongoing health issues like increased blood pressure, irritability, problems concentrating and depression. Fortunately, in many cases, sleep apnea treatment can help to stop the snoring and improve the sleep.
Don’t Settle for Poor Sleep
OSA affects millions of Americans, and it can lead to increasingly serious medical problems. Fortunately, for many patients, a dentist can provide a minimally invasive and fast treatment option in the form of a sleep appliance. These devices are similar to custom mouthguards, the kind worn during sporting events to protect teeth or during orthodontic treatment to aid in alignment improvement. Yet a sleep device is made specifically to prevent soft tissues form shifting during the night.
Enjoy Quieter Nights and Improved Health
If you or a loved one could be suffering from OSA, it’s best to schedule a dental appointment as soon as possible. A sleep device, like a SomnoDent Sleep Solution, could likely help to quickly improve the quality of sleep for both of you.
