Do you wake up from a long night of sleep feeling like you barely slept? Is it a struggle to stay awake at work and behind the wheel? Have you noticed that you’re easily annoyed or moody lately? All of these are a symptom of a common condition known as sleep apnea.
Patients who struggle with sleep apnea aren’t getting the rest they deserve because they stop breathing for 10 seconds or longer during sleep. As a result, patients with sleep apnea wake up throughout the night to breathe—even if they don’t ever wake up all the way. Some patients only move from a deep stage of sleep to a lighter stage. That means that some patients struggling with sleep apnea may not even realize they have a problem.
If any of these symptoms sounds familiar to you, considering see our team at Bonness Family Dentistry for care. Our Camby dental office offers effective sleep apnea therapy to help patients overcome their symptoms and get the rest they’ve been missing.
Very often, sleep apnea is caused by an obstructed airway. That’s why many sleep apnea patients also struggle with snoring. To treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), our doctors can provide an oral appliance that will reposition the tongue or lower jaw and keep airways open. As a result, getting a full night of rest is finally possible.
