Sleep Better With Laurel Dental Group
If you have trouble sleeping and wake up throughout the night, you may suffer from sleep apnea. At Laurel Dental Group, you’ll find various solutions to help you get better sleep and get your life back.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a disorder that interferes with healthy breathing patterns during sleep. It’s characterized by loud snoring, often affecting the sleep quality of bed partners.
Sleep apnea can strain relationships, cause daytime fatigue, and lead to secondary conditions like depression. Severe cases can be life-threatening.
Determining if you suffer from sleep apnea without a proper diagnosis can be challenging. Some symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Feeling tired throughout the day
- Experiencing reduced reaction time
- Struggles with vision
- Lapses in concentration
- Struggling to fall and stay asleep
- Sleep paralysis
- Loudly snoring
- Waking up feeling short of breath
- Making snorting or choking sounds at night
- Having unexplained, frequent headaches
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Laurel Dental Group can treat sleep apnea using special appliances that open the airway to prevent the harmful side effects of the condition and improve your quality of life.
Orthodontic treatment is another option to treat sleep apnea. Correcting oral issues and properly aligning your teeth can eliminate jaw discrepancies that lead to airway obstruction.
