Is your husband or wife finding it hard to sleep, because of just how loud your snoring has become? Was the last family vacation a disaster because you kept everyone up wheezing and hissing at night, in the hotel? If so, you could have bigger problems than just the snoring, itself. In some cases, snoring is actually a symptom of obtrusive sleep apnea, a condition that can drastically reduce the restfulness of your sleep. This can, in turn, have a number of negative effects on your overall well-being. So whether you’re tired of loved ones teasing you or complaining about your snoring, or just know that you feel tired in the morning, even after a full night’s sleep, it could be beneficial to speak with your dentist about the potential solution that could help you sleep without a sound, so those you love can sleep more soundly!
Know the Symptoms, and Seek Treatment
Snoring, tiredness, irritability, headaches, pains through the neck and dizziness are just a few of the common signals of sleep apnea, or another sleeping disorder. Fortunately, in many cases, sufferers from even severe sleep apnea can effectively treat the disorder with a simple and minimally-invasive treatment.
By fitting you with a custom oral appliance, like those by SomnoDent Sleep Solutions, a dentist can help to keep your airways clear as you sleep, allowing you to breathe more easily and often to eliminate snoring.
The oral appliance, very similar to the kind of mouthguard you might have worn during sporting events or during orthodontic treatment, works by helping to keep your jaw in a comfortable position, and one that helps to make sure the passageways remain clear as you sleep.
