SNORING & SLEEP APNEA APPLIANCES
Never ignore snoring as it can be a sign of a major breathing problem. Sleep apnea is when you stop breathing for short periods of time in your sleep. You must briefly wake up to breathe even though you will not remember it. Sleep apnea can make you more likely to have other health problems such as high blood pressure, heart attacks, and strokes. Some other signs of sleep apnea besides snoring also include; gasping or snorting in your sleep, waking up with a headache, having memory problems, falling asleep during the day even with a full night’s rest, and even concentration problems.
A doctor can help you by using sleep tests and studies to determine if you have sleep apnea. They may get you to try weight loss, look into family history, quit smoking all substances, cut down on drinking, or unblock your nose. In some cases, these do not help and an oral appliance is needed. This helps reduce or relieve snoring and sleep apnea. A dental specialist works with your doctor to build and fit an oral appliance fit specifically for you. If you believe you may have sleep apnea, your dentist or doctor may be able to help! – Nosehill Dental Centre, www.nosehilldental.com
