A night of healthy sleep can change how you feel throughout the day. If you have obstructive sleep apnea, those nights may be few and far between for you and your loved ones. If you often wake up with headaches and listen to constant complaints about your snoring, then it’s time to schedule a consultation at our Waco, TX dental office to discuss our sleep apnea treatment.
Here are three reasons you should:
1. Stop Your Snoring
Loud and persistent snoring is one of the most common symptoms of untreated sleep apnea. By getting one of our oral appliances, you can alter the position of your jaw so your snoring occurs rarely if at all.
2. Breathe Easier
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that causes you to stop breathing when you fall asleep. These stoppages can happen hundreds of times every night. Your body responds to this by waking you up (even if you don’t remember it). With the right treatment, you will keep breathing. This allows you to reach the stages of deep sleep so you can wake feeling refreshed and energized.
3. Improve Your Health
The breathing stoppages caused by sleep apnea takes a toll on your body. You are more likely to develop high blood pressure and you are at a greater risk of heart attacks and strokes. Research also reveals that your sleep deprivation makes you more likely to be involved in an automobile accident.
