Do you or your partner snore?
Chronic snoring can be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea. OSA occurs when breathing passages in the throat are obstructed by tissue. Airway blockage prevents vital organs from receiving the oxygen they need. In the most severe cases, if left untreated, sleep apnea can result in heart attacks or even death. It is important to look for signs of sleep apnea before problems worsen.
Signs of Sleep Apnea
Here are some common signs of sleep apnea to look out for:
- Chronic migraines
- Restless sleep
- Dry mouth
Treating Sleep Apnea
Dr. Brock Hyder offers sleep apnea treatment through the use of oral appliances. Oral appliances are custom-fit to each patient and their needs. This solution frees the airways for a restful and safe night of sleep. Oral appliances are also created to be as comfortable as possible for each sleep apnea patient.
Benefits of Oral Appliances
Oral appliances can:
- Reposition the lower jaw and tongue
- Stabilize the jaw
- Open up airways
- Increase the tongue’s muscle tone
Treating sleep apnea can reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. It can also result in less fatigue during the day time.
