Sleep Apnea Appliance Therapy
We value the importance of getting a good night’s sleep. We realize that if you’re snoring excessively, you need help! In addition, we want to warn our patients about the risks of sleep apnea, and let our patients know that we have options available for those who have already been diagnosed with sleep apnea.
The Importance of Sleep Apnea Treatment
Many individuals do not realize the importance of dental sleep apnea treatment for their snoring problems. Sleep apnea is a more serious condition than common snoring. Snoring stems from a partial blockage of the airway, whereas sleep apnea stems from a complete blockage of the airway while you sleep. This complete blockage of the airway causes a deprivation of oxygen, thereby leading to a number of health risks.
Some of the many health risks associated with sleep apnea include: • Heart attacks • Irregular heartbeats • Impotence • High blood pressure • Heartburn • Stroke • Morning headaches • Dry mouth • Gastroesophageal reflux disease • Depression • Impaired concentration • Decreased libido • Irritability Some of these conditions may seem like minor inconveniences; however some of these conditions can be life-threatening.
