Are you having a hard time getting quality rest at night? In fact, do you wake up feeling exhausted, even distracted and irritable? If so, you might think you simply need to be getting more sleep, but if you are suffering from a sleeping disorder, it could be the quality of rest that is actually creating problems. Obstructive Sleep Apnea is one such dangerous sleeping disorder that affects millions of Americans. Not only can OSA negatively impact one’s rest, but it can actually be life-threatening, since it involves momentary lapses in breathing. Fortunately, for many patients, sleep apnea treatment through a dentist provides a simple yet effective way to stop the OSA and improve the sleep.
Could You Be Suffering from OSA?
If you have been told you snore loudly, frequently wake up feeling tired or even exhausted, have difficulty concentrating, are easily irritated, or have been suffering from high blood pressure, these could all be symptoms of OSA. Since quality sleep is crucial to your overall health, it’s important to seek help if you could be suffering from OSA.
How Can a Dentist Help Improve Your Sleep
In many cases, dentists can help treat OSA with minimally invasive treatment. A sleep appliance like a SomnoDent Sleep Solution, for instance, is a fast and often effective way of preventing further struggles with sleep apnea.
A sleep appliance works by helping to keep soft tissues from shifting to block one’s airway during sleep. In doing so, it allows for improved airflow and a better quality of sleep. As an added benefit, it can help to stop the loud snoring, as well.
