Snoring and Sleep Apnea Solutions

Snoring can place a strain on your personal relationships, but did you know that your night time vibrations may be a sign that you are suffering from sleep apnea?

Over 70 million Americans suffer from a sleep disorder and those that suffer specifically from sleep apnea may experience the following symptoms:

  • Heavy snoring
  • Gasping or choking during sleep
  • Cessation of breathing (“apnea”) during sleep
  • Restless sleep
  • Extreme daytime sleepiness
  • Morning headaches
  • Poor mental functioning (poor judgment, lack of focus, memory loss, mood swings…)
  • Reduced libido

At our dental practice located in Lincoln Park, we find that sleep apnea patients may experience a number of symptoms, ranging in severity from relatively minor sleep disruptions to chronic health conditions.

The hardest thing about diagnosing sleep apnea is that most people do not associate snoring with negative health issues. In some cases snoring may not be indicative of sleep apnea, but if you wake up tired, sore and are lacking in focus and concentration you might have sleep apnea.

Did you know?

Did you know that sufferers of sleep apnea are more likely to fall asleep at the wheel? There have been a number of studies conducted between 2008 and 2013 to determine the effect of untreated sleep apnea on people’s driving. It turns out that people with sleep apnea are twice as likely to have a motor vehicle accident as people without sleep apnea.

If you snore, or if your partner snores it is important to visit the dentist because that snoring could be an indication of sleep apnea.

If you are among those who experience symptoms of this debilitating condition, our team of dental professionals can help

We can utilize advanced oral appliance therapy to both treat the symptoms and underlying causes, of sleep apnea to help you reclaim your sleep and overall health. The good news is that our sleep apnea treatment can also dramatically reduce or eliminate your snoring at night!
