Sleep Apnea is an extremely serious condition that causes a person to wake up constantly throughout the night from respiratory disturbances like sleep apnea (when you stop breathing). Sleep apnea will cause medical conditions to occur, and existing medical conditions to worsen or make more difficult for you and your doctor to manage. Hypertension (high blood pressure, eventually renal failure), diabetes, heart failure, and stroke are very common in people who suffer from sleep apnea.
If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea and can't comfortably wear a CPap machine, we can offer a dental appliance to help keep your airway open and help both your breathing and snoring problems.
