The Dangers of Snoring Due to Sleep Apnea
Snoring can be a laugh – unless you are the one suffering from sleepless nights or sharing the bed with someone who snores heavily every night. Snoring can actually harm more than just your sleep schedule and contribute to life-threatening illness and diseases. If you or a loved one has a snoring problem, you don’t have to suffer needlessly. There are solutions available to help you breathe easier, sleep better and avoid developing more serious health issues. The professionals at Dr. Cyrus Dentistry can provide suitable, custom devices to help you handle your sleep apnea.
Signs It’s Time to Get Treatment for Your Snoring
Snoring can progress into a serious problem for many people. It is important to identify when it is time to seek professional advice and allow you and your loved ones to rest easy.
- Waking during the night. Do you find yourself waking often during the night? You may have undiagnosed Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Sleep is critical to good health, so getting your OSA treated is important to your overall health.
- Interrupted breathing. If you find yourself gasping for air when you awake, you are likely suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Your breathing is completely stopping, for some up to 50 times per night, which can be extremely dangerous.
- Loud snoring. Caused by vibrations in the airways, snoring can be deafening. If people in other rooms can hear your snoring, or you are disturbing your partner, you should seek assistance for snoring prevention.
If a good night’s sleep isn’t enough motivation for you to seek treatment, consider the following. Snoring has also been linked to serious health conditions, such as:
- Heart attacks
- Irregular heartbeat
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
There are several options available for treatment. Dr. Cyrus Dentistry is trained to offer non-invasive and custom mouth guards that can eliminate your snoring problem. The guards are fitted and designed to open your airways, limiting the vibrations that cause snoring and allowing you to sleep through the night. Masks and nose strips can be uncomfortable, disrupting your sleep by limiting your movement. They can also be cumbersome to travel with and inconvenient to transport. A mouth guard provides a comfortable and portable solution to get your OSA under control.
