Your Redmond Sleep Apnea dentists want to help you (and anyone who sleeps close enough to hear you) get a great night’s sleep. We’ll improve your life and health, too.
Understanding Sleep Apnea:
1. During a sleep apnea episode, your breathing stops. Due to this halt in airflow, your blood oxygen levels can drop to unsafe amounts.
2. Your brain will force your body to start breathing again—usually through a gasping or choking breath. This gasping/choking breath results in the snoring that can ruin your sleep and that of anyone nearby. It is usually the most prominent and recognizable sign that you suffer from sleep apnea.
3. This cycle repeats, over and over, disrupting your sleep again and again throughout the night. You get a poor quality of sleep, which is hard on your body and your mind. You may wake with excessive tiredness and/or a headache, dry mouth, irritability. These symptoms may persist throughout the day and can result in serious medical problems.
Depending on the type of apnea you have, you might not even remember the gasping or waking episodes. You’ll just wake with a headache, dry mouth, poor concentration, and a drowsy feeling that does not go away. You may affect the sleep of anyone sleeping in the same room or nearby. You may have trouble losing weight—sleep apnea can be a factor in obesity, poor cardiovascular health, and many other serious health issues.
But you don’t have to suffer.
You can put an end to fitful snoring and choking. Your sleep can again be peaceful and rejuvenating.
Sleep apnea can be treated easily, affordably, and non-invasively by your Redmond Dentist. Reclaim your good sleep and good health. If you suffer from any of the above symptoms, make an appointment and see if a dental sleep apnea cure can return your nights to restfulness.
