If you suffer from sleep apnea, you may find that both your days and nights are negatively affected. Sleep apnea happens when your airway is briefly obstructed. You will then awaken with a start as your body struggles for air. Sometimes these moments are so brief, you have no recollection of them in the morning. However, constant interruptions in your sleep can disturb both you and your sleeping partner. Restless nights mean that during the day you feel tired or ineffective.
Do You Have Sleep Apnea?
Symptoms of sleep apnea vary from person to person; however, some of the symptoms may include the following:
- You feel sleepy or fatigued during the day. You may also have trouble focusing on your work, school, or other tasks.
- You have trouble falling asleep at night or waking up in the morning.
- You experience interruptions in your breathing while trying to sleep.
- You snore loudly or chronically.
We Can Help!
At Restorative Dental we can provide relief for your sleep apnea. With our training and technology, we should be able to detect what may be causing your sleep apnea and find the best solution for treating it.
You may have a misalignment or malformation in your nose, mouth, or throat that is causing your airway to become constricted. Our trained team can find these abnormalities and provide you with choices in treatment.
Your Sleep Apnea Solution
The solution is often as simple as using an oral device that will help correct the position of your jaw, allowing your airways to open and air to move freely through your nose and mouth. Additionally, snoring can often be eliminated or greatly reduced because of this device.
