Not Just Snoring

Health Benefits of Sleep Apnea Assessment & Treatment

Do you snore? Does your spouse or partner say that you snore, or even complain about your snoring keeping them up at night? If so, your snoring could be a sign of a more serious health issue: Sleep Apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is a physical condition wherein breathing repeatedly stops and starts during one’s sleep. This can lead to a number of symptoms, including:

• Snoring (often loudly)
• Insomnia / inability to sleep / lack of sleep
• Headaches upon waking up (sometimes with dry mouth / sore throat)
• Feeling tired during the day

If you know that you snore, and/or are feeling some or all of these symptoms, you could be suffering from sleep apnea. It is not a condition to let linger, treat lightly or ignore. Instead, your best course of action is to get tested for sleep apnea and find out whether you are a candidate for the sleep apnea treatment and remedies now available.

What Smile Denture & Implant Customers Are Saying

Frequently Asked

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that negatively impacts a person’s sleep cycle and overall health. A person’s upper airway will narrow and cause a person to temporarily stop breathing during sleep. This irregular breathing is known as an apnea. A signal is sent to the brain and causes the person to wake up just enough to restart their breathing. This repeats several times throughout one night.
