Is snoring a problem in your household? Do you snore yourself or are you awakened by someone else’s snoring. It’s a common problem caused by relaxed soft tissues of the mouth and throat that result in a vibration known as snoring.
The solution? A custom fabricated oral appliance is fitted over your upper and lower teeth before sleep and is designed to maintain your lower jaw in a slightly forward position, thereby keeping your airway open and allowing you to breathe more <<<<<< f>r>e>e>l>y>
Snoring can also be a sign of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), a serious health condition, which left undiagnosed and untreated, can cause headaches, memory problems, depression, high blood pressure, heart problems, including stroke, heart attacks, and ultimately heart failure.
According to the American Sleep Apnea Association, sleep apnea happens when people stop breathing repeatedly throughout the night. This stoppage in breathing can last for as long as 30 seconds. And when the brain realizes that it needs air, it sends panic signals to the body to wake it up.
Most at risk for sleep apnea are overweight men over the age of 40. But they aren’t the only people that can be affected by this condition. Children teens and adults of any age can also have sleep apnea.
At present, physicians diagnose sleep apnea. If you suspect you or your sleep partner have sleep apnea, we can conduct a comprehensive evaluation and refer you for a sleep study and medical assessment.
