IS YOUR SNORING KEEPING YOUR PARTNER AWAKE AT NIGHT? DO YOU WAKE UP GASPING FOR BREATH? IS NOT GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP AT NIGHT CAUSING DROWSINESS DURING THE DAY?
If you are answering “Yes!” to these questions, you may have sleep apnea.
Obstructive sleep apnea is a disease that can cause serious health issues like increased blood pressure and the restriction of oxygen to the brain and blood stream.
Fortunately, there are treatments for sleep apnea. According to the dental sleep machine website “Snoring Isn’t Sexy,” there are more than 80 different oral devices on the market for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. Many people who suffer from this condition use a CPAP machine – but we have an alternative solution.
At Austin Family Dentistry in Little Rock, we recommend oral appliances that are as effective in the treatment of mild to moderate sleep apnea as the CPAP machine.
