Stop Snoring and Sleep Better with Sleep Apnea Therapy
Sleep Apnea Afflicts 40 Million Americans
Sleep apnea is a very common, yet underdiagnosed disease—many people who have it, don’t actually know. Around 40 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea and more than 13 million have moderate to severe sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is the collapse of the upper airways during sleep after the body has relaxed. This airway closure causes a halt to your breathing, sometimes happening hundreds of times per night. Beyond causing a restless night, sleep apnea is dangerous for your health and can leave you feeling tired throughout the day.
You may be experiencing sleep apnea if you have any of these symptoms:
Loud, constant, or explosive snoring
Waking up gasping for air during sleep
Breathing stops for several seconds during sleep
Waking up tired or persistent fatigue
Memory and concentration problems
Tooth grinding and acid reflux
Sleep Disordered Breathing Affects More Than Just Your Sleep!
If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, it is important to seek treatment right away. Without treatment, the disease can cause a number of health issues including high blood pressure, stroke, heart failure, diabetes and decreased concentration. The fatigue associated with sleep apnea can be a cause of performance issues at work, exhaustion while driving, and may even affect relationships. In children and teens, sleep apnea is a potential cause for poor performance in school and other activities.
Treatments to Help You Sleep Well at Night
Northwood Dental offers snoring and sleep apnea solutions to help give you, and your loved ones, a restful, restorative sleep. Whereas CPAP therapy is commonly used to treat sleep apnea, we at NWD offer a medically approved dental device alternative. We use proven, custom fabricated, mandibular advancement devices or (MAD’s) that guides the lower jaw forward, increasing the size of the airway, thereby preventing blockage. These devices are less invasive than CPAP machines, are more discreet, and are easily portable due to their small size and don’t require electricity. We welcome you to come in for a consultation to see if a dental device would be appropriate to use for your snoring or sleep apnea.
