Brampton Dental Office Provides Sleep Apnea Treatment
Enjoy a Restful Night of Sleep Again
When you wake up in the morning, do you feel rested or do you routinely feel like you've barely slept. For patients who struggle with sleep apnea, the latter is a familiar feeling. That's because sleep apnea patients stop breathing while asleep. After a while, the brain sends out a signal to the body, waking it up to take a breath. This happens repeatedly throughout the night, with the patient experiencing regular intervals of wakefulness, even if he or she never wakes up completely.
Sleep Apnea and Snoring
Of course, not every case of daytime drowsiness means you're struggling with sleep apnea. But if your partner routinely complains about your loud snoring, then you may, in fact, be struggling with sleep apnea. Snoring and sleep apnea often go hand-in-hand because they have a similar cause: obstructed airways. Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) results from the tongue or lower jaw blocking air's path to your lungs, while snoring results from air trying to squeeze past these obstructions.
Other symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Daytime drowsiness
- Memory loss
- Difficult concentrating
- Accidents at work, home, or behind the wheel
If left untreated, sleep apnea can even lead to more serious health risks, like high blood pressure, heart trouble, and even premature death.
Effective Treatment for Sleep Apnea
Our dentists will help you treat your sleep apnea symptoms to enjoy a restful night of sleep again. Depending on your needs, we may recommend a custom-made oral appliance. Your oral appliance will reposition your tongue and lower jaw while you're asleep, keeping the path to your lungs open and free so air can easily get through without causing you to snore or resulting in a cycle of interrupted sleep.
