Sleep Apnea Treatment
Do you snore loudly, or have you been diagnosed with sleep apnea? According to the American Sleep Apnea Association, it is estimated that 22 million or more Americans suffer from sleep apnea. This condition can interrupt your breathing and sleep, causing negative health consequences. It can also be deadly. If you have sleep apnea or snore frequently, there are non-invasive treatment options available. Sapphire Creek Dental in New Braunfels, TX, offers sleep apnea treatment to give you relief and protect your health.
Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common form of this condition. This occurs when the airway is blocked by soft tissue or the tongue during sleep, causing the person to stop breathing, gasp or snore. These interruptions in breathing and sleep patterns are dangerous. Those brief interruptions in breathing can put you at higher risk for stroke, high blood pressure and other serious health issues. You may feel fatigued, have headaches and difficulty with mental clarity. Plus, snoring can also interrupt the sleep of others in your home, affecting their well-being.
