Do you keep waking up feeling groggy, in spite of a full night worth of sleep? Has your significant other started complaining about your increasingly loud snoring? When at work, do you find yourself feeling drowsy and unable to concentrate? If so, you could be suffering from a sleep disorder like Obstructive Sleep Apnea. OSA is a dangerous condition, both because of the negative impact it can have on your quality of sleep, but also because it involves momentarily lapses in breathing which can be incredibly dangerous, even deadly. If you are tired of feeling tired, it’s time to talk to your dentist about whether sleep apnea could be to blame, and if so, how a simple sleep appliance could likely help.
Don’t Continue Suffering from Poor Sleep
Minimally invasive sleep appliances are a great alternative to CPAP machines, which can be cumbersome and also loud. They are similar to custom mouthguards created to aid in orthodontic treatment, or to prevent trauma to teeth during athletic events, yet a sleep appliance helps improve breathing during sleep.
They do this by helping to prevent shifting of the soft tissues during sleep, allowing for more continuous airflow.
Enjoy Better Rest, Less Snoring with a Simple Sleep Appliance
By eliminating lapses in breathing, sleep appliances can help to reduce or eliminate snoring, but also lead to a much better quality of sleep. Over time this can help to reduce risk of high blood pressure and other common side effects of poor sleeping and limited oxygen supply during the night. So why not find out if your dentist can provide you with a minimally invasive sleep appliance?
