Does snoring cause your family to lose sleep? A sleep apnea oral appliance may be able to help!
If you snore, frequently wake up gasping for air, or if your spouse complains night after night about your snoring, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may be to blame.
Sleep apnea is a serious condition that causes your airway to become obstructed, making it diﬃcult or impossible to breathe while asleep. Snoring may seem like nothing more than a nuisance and for many people, occasional snoring is nothing to be alarmed about. But if you snore on a regular basis, you may be at risk of having a serious sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea.
The impact sleep apnea has on your body may be more serious than you realize. In extreme cases of obstructive sleep apnea, you could potentially face heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke if you do not treat your sleeping disorder.
How a Sleep Apnea Oral Appliance Can Help You Sleep Better At Night
A sleep apnea dentist in St. Augustine, Florida, at Elite Smiles Dentistry may be your solution to a better night’s rest and better overall health. To help you get relief, our dentists will provide you with the following:
- Sleep Study. Sleep studies have come a long way over the years, and now studies are done in the privacy of your own home — no laboratory setting required! If your dentist suspects that you may have sleep apnea, you will be provided with a take-home study. This study requires that you wear a small wrist strap with very few wires. Once ﬁnished, your dentist can review your sleeping behavior to determine if you are at risk of sleep apnea.
- Oral Appliances. Once your dentist reviews your sleep study and gets a better understanding for what may be causing your sleep apnea, you will be provided with an oral appliance to stop the obstruction from occurring. The result? You sleep better, feel better in the morning, and improve your overall health.
