• Do you feel tired, even after a full night’s rest?
• Do you have morning headaches?
• Have you been told that you snore loudly?
• Do you have difficulty concentrating?
• Do you wake up during the night choking or gasping for air?
Every night, millions of people go to sleep hoping to wake in the morning feeling rested and relaxed. For people with sleep-disordered breathing problems, this just isn’t possible. If you suffer from non-restful sleep, you’re not alone. More than 40 million Americans suffer from some variety of sleep disorder – many of which go undiagnosed.
However, thanks to ongoing research and advances in dental sleep medicine, there is much that can be done today to provide you with treatment options that will help you find relief! Is you bed partner’s snoring keeping you awake at night?
Snoring doesn’t always equal obstructive sleep apnea, although most people with the disorder do snore. However, while one is annoying, the other can be life threatening, so it’s important to find out for sure. If you or someone you know snores loudly, or appears to stop breathing for short periods and then abruptly starts again, we strongly recommend that you make an appointment for a dental sleep examination. In addition to studying your health history, we will perform a full evaluation of the soft tissues in your mouth, throat, neck, and nose to determine the degree of laxity in those tissues and find out how they may be obstructing your breathing while you sleep. Even if your condition is identified as ‘simple snoring,’ we offer therapies that can resolve it. That’s great news for you and your bed partner, too!
