15 Dec A Comfortable Solution For Sleep Apnea
When you often feel exhausted during the day, and struggling with moodiness and memory issues, this could be linked to a serious sleep disorder. Sleep apnea impacts millions, and could lead to major issues or your overall health. Our Dallas, TX holistic dental office provides a comfortable and effective solution for sleep apnea with an oral appliance.
The Warning Signs of Trouble
Do you often feel tired during the day, or do you suffer from chronic snoring? These could be warning signs of sleep apnea, a disorder that causes you to stop breathing multiple times a night. While you may not remember these episodes happening, they can interrupt your sleep cycle hundreds of times in a night, leaving you exhausted. Other warning signs include waking suddenly gasping for air or choking, headaches, dry mouth, and irritability, along with issues related to your memory and ability to concentrate on tasks. When these issues occur, let us know right away so we can conduct a diagnosis and see if you need an oral appliance!
The Dangers of Sleep Apnea
The disorder could lead to stress on your immune system, so you’re more likely to develop illness. In addition, this could also stress your cardiovascular system, so you’re more likely to develop high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, and heart disease. Our team can offer treatment with a custom oral appliance, a CPAP alternative that fits comfortably and offers treatment without a loud machine or mask. In the meantime, you can help with a few changes to your sleep routine, including resting on your side instead of your back, keeping your bedroom cool and dark, and avoiding large meals, caffeine, exercise, or excessive alcohol in the two hours before bed.
Treatment with an Oral Appliance
Our team will custom-fit a SomnoDent MAS™ oral appliance to you, a device that fits over the upper and lower teeth like an athlete mouthguard. The device then helps reposition your jaw and tongue to keep airways from being obstructed, so you breathe without interruption and feel more rested the next day. This can help you avoid snoring and sleep apnea issues, all without the need for a CPAP machine. If you struggle with sleep issues and want to find relief, then please reach out to our teams today to learn more. We want to help you enjoy your best quality of life, and that starts with a good night’s rest.
