Sleep Apnea Therapy
If you snore or experience chronic fatigue no matter how much time you spend in bed, you might be suffering with sleep apnea. What’s sleep apnea? This little-known disorder is often undiagnosed, but it can cause serious disruptions to sleep and health. Our Weatherford, TX dental office offers sleep apnea therapy, and we use advanced technology to detect and diagnose the problem to provide more targeted treatment.
If you experience the following symptoms, you will want to consider a visit to Cosmetic and Family Dentistry of Weatherford to find out more about sleep apnea:
- Excessive daytime drowsiness
- Loud snoring
- Gasping or struggling for breath during the night
- Morning headaches or sore throats
- Dry mouth upon awakening
- Concentration problems
- Frequent waking during the night
Most people don’t realize how serious problems like snoring or chronic fatigue can be. These are more than annoyances; they’re symptoms of possible deeper issues that can contribute to high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke. Sleep apnea is characterized by long pauses in breathing during sleep, and these pauses put excessive strain on the body. Plus, lack of quality sleep is detrimental to your health as well.
Sleep apnea therapy can involve the use of intraoral appliances that keep the airway clear and prevent pauses in breathing. If you’ve tried other treatments, such as CPAP, or you’ve never tried a procedure and would like to explore the option of intraoral appliances for sleep apnea therapy, contact us for an appointment. We can help you find out more about your disorder and recommend appropriate treatment.
