Did you know that your dentist can help with sleep apnea and snoring?
Sleep apnea and snoring affect millions of people and if you are one of them, we have sleep solutions for you!
One of the most well-known sleep apnea solutions involves a Continuous Positive Air Pressure (CPAP) machine. These machines can be inconvenient for travel and require thorough cleaning on a daily basis. Some patients say they are uncomfortable to wear while trying to sleep, and often still wake up tired from a poor night of sleep. Many people who try to use a CPAP get frustrated and give up using it. Perhaps you are searching for a CPAP alternative too.
People are looking for the best way to treat their sleep apnea and provide a snoring solution at the same time. Most people don’t know that there are dentists who can help.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder which can become potentially dangerous because breathing repeatedly stops and starts in the night. Symptoms include loud snoring, gasping for air, awakening with a dry mouth, morning headache, insomnia, irritability, difficulty concentrating and sleepiness during the day. The three main types of sleep apnea are Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) when throat muscles relax and block your airway, Central Sleep Apnea (brain fails to send proper signals to muscles that control breathing, and Complex Sleep Apnea syndrome when a person has both obstructive and central sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea is serious because your body is experiencing frequent small episodes of stopped breathing throughout the night, as many as 400 times. This affects your brain and over time, this can shorten your lifespan. It is important to receive a clear diagnosis of sleep apnea and to seek appropriate treatment.
Do you have sleep apnea if you snore?
If you are a snorer, you might have sleep apnea, but that isn't necessarily the case. Normal snoring doesn't interfere with the quality of your sleep as much as sleep apnea does. People with sleep apnea experience extreme fatigue and drowsiness during the day due to sleep apnea at night. Normal snoring is annoying for your partner, but if it is accompanied by sleep apnea, it is the sign of something more serious. Many people who suffer with snoring or sleep apnea don’t know that a dentist can help with these problems. Are you looking for a sleep apnea dentist in Calgary SE?
