How often do you wake up feeling truly well rested? If it doesn’t feel like nearly enough, it could be due to a sleeping disorder like sleep apnea. Obstructive Sleep Apnea is just one form of sleeping disorder, one that can create a whole host of side effects, including irritability, an overall sense of fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and even depression. OSA is often treated through the use of a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machine, commonly called a CPAP. That said, many dentists offer an even simpler solution in the form of a non-invasive sleep appliance like a SomnoDent Sleep Solution.
Enjoy Peaceful Rest Again with Sleep Apnea Treatment
Loud snoring is just one common warning sign of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Headaches, especially in the morning, fatigue, and mood changes can all be caused by sleeping disorders like OSA, as well. Because of this, sleeping disorders can make it difficult to work efficiently, or even to drive safely, due to fatigue, drowsinesss and even memory loss.
Over time, OSA can also lead to increased risk of serious health conditions including heart disease and stroke.
Why Dentists Offer Minimally Invasive Alternatives
While many doctors treat OSA with CPAP machines, some patients find the noise of the
machines air pump and the feel of the masks to be distracting. This is why many dentists offer a less invasive alternative, in the form of a sleep device.
A sleep device is made to keep a person’s soft tissues from shifting during sleep, and causing the airway to become partially blocked.
