Your rest is vital to carrying out your daily routine as well as maintaining your health. As your dedicated dentists, we want to help you get the rest you need.
If you are suffering from snoring or sleep apnea, we can help you discover options that can ensure that you are sleeping well night after night.
Snoring might be the punchline of plenty of jokes, but those who live with severe snoring—and their loved ones—know that it’s not a laughing matter. When snoring is serious enough, it can interfere with sleep, and it leaves people exhausted in the morning when they should be well-rested.
Snoring can also be a symptom of sleep apnea, a serious condition that causes people to stop breathing for short periods while they sleep.
Whether you’re suffering from sleep apnea or would just like to stop snoring for your partner’s sake, we can help.
Do I Have Sleep Apnea?
The best way to know for certain whether you’re experiencing sleep apnea is to speak with a professional. If you think you or a loved one has sleep apnea, contact us today! That said, there are several symptoms that can suggest you might have sleep apnea. Ask yourself the following:
- Am I a loud snorer?
- Do I often wake up in the morning feeling tired?
- Do I usually have a sore throat or headache in the morning?
- Do I ever wake up suddenly in the night, especially with a dry throat?
- Do I often feel exhausted throughout the day?
If you answered yes to more than one of these questions, it’s possible that you’re experiencing sleep apnea. Come to our office to learn about our treatment options.
If you experience snoring or sleep apnea, one of our oral appliances can help you manage it. These appliances work by gently realigning your jaw and opening your airway for easier, more natural breathing.
Oral appliances often work best for mild to moderate snoring and obstructive sleep apnea, but if your symptoms are more severe, we’ll find a solution that works for you personally.
