Sleep Apnea Therapy: Sleep Easy Tonight
Sleep apnea is a very serious condition that affects about 20 million Americans each night. A person suffering from it stops breathing for short periods of time throughout the night, forcing them to constantly wake up. This not only robs them of precious sleep, but it also stresses the body and can cause increased blood pressure. Over time, sleep apnea can lead to a wide variety of chronic health issues, and many of them can be potentially fatal.
If you are constantly exhausted even though you’re sleeping throughout the night, or if you ever wake up gasping for air, you could very well be suffering from sleep apnea. Dr. Ben and Dr. Stacey can help you relieve these symptoms using simple and effective oral appliance therapy, in which all a patient has to do is wear a small, custom-made mouthguard to bed each night. In fact, more and more studies are showing that oral appliance therapy is a fantastic and useful alternative to the CPAP machine.
