We have some personal questions for you. Has your snoring increased? Are you waking up feeling unrested? Irritable? With headaches?
These are just some of the signs of sleep apnea, a condition in which your breathing is interrupted while you sleep, many times per night. This can lead to serious complications due to oxygen deprivation, along with a lower quality of life.
If you may have the symptoms of sleep apnea, please call Johnny Smith DMD today. We have solutions for you.
What Complications Does Sleep Apnea Cause?
Sleep deprivation can put you and your family members in danger. It is associated with:
- Poor memory and confusion.
- Headaches and migraines.
- Extreme daytime drowsiness.
- Sudden weight gain.
- Trembling hands.
- Muscle fatigue.
- Sudden mood swings.
- Unusually loud snoring.
- Waking with a choking or gasping sensation.
- Falling asleep while driving or operating equipment.
Sleep apnea severely reduces your oxygen intake during the night hours, which can lead to serious health concerns like:
- Heart conditions.
- Increased blood pressure.
If one or several of the symptoms mentioned above has increased recently, you may need to visit Johnny Smith DMD for sleep apnea treatment. Imagine reducing your snoring, getting better sleep, and having an overall better quality of life!
How Can We Treat Sleep Apnea?
A custom-made oral appliance is often the only treatment our patients need for sleep apnea. With a comfortable device made just for you, your airway will be adjusted into an open position while you sleep, relieving pressure on the tissues that were pressed together and obstructed.
We’ll find the jaw position that is causing your snoring and your sleep interruptions. Then we’ll help create your personalized oral appliance as quickly as possible.
In addition, we can educate you on simple lifestyle changes that can improve your sleep and reduce sleep apnea. These can include different sleeping positions, dieting, exercise, and cessation of smoking—all practices that can improve your life as well as your sleep.
