Are you aware of a severe sleeping disorder known as sleep apnea that occurs when you’re breathing patterns are interrupted as you sleep? If you are struggling with traditional breathing patterns while you sleep, it could be caused by blocked airflow or even brain signals not being received by your breathing muscles from your brain. Furthermore, if you have a family history of sleep apnea or you are overweight or have nasal obstructions, you are at a greater risk for sleep apnea.
If you are suffering from sleep apnea, it needs to be dealt with immediately. Normally, it can lead to high blood pressure and diabetes, but it also can result in heart attacks and stroke. We have numerous treatment options that can help you. We can help adjust your sleeping habits and give you the proper treatments to get your sleeping back on track. If you’re looking for oral appliances, we can help provide new devices that can support your jaw as well as improve your breathing while you sleep. Furthermore, surgery can also be given to help open up your airways.
