Where can I get Back of the Yards sleep apnea treatment?
We all know what snoring sounds like, some of us are all too painfully aware. But what is it that causes this bedeviling noise, and what can be done about it? Snoring is the sound that occurs when the soft tissue and muscles in the upper airway vibrate as you breathe. Particularly loud or frequent snoring can be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea, a serious and potentially life threatening disorder. For patients in Back of the Yards sleep apnea can be treated with a simple but effective oral appliance worn at night. At Sonrisa Family Dental, their highly skilled experts provide the state-of-the-art sleep apnea treatments, as well as nightguards, and a comprehensive menu of general, preventive, restorative and cosmetic dental services. Apart from the critical health benefits of treating sleep apnea, putting a stop to snoring is an added bonus!
Sufferers of sleep apnea often report waking up in the morning to find that they’re unrefreshed from a what they think is a full night’s sleep. But, sleep apnea causes patients to experience cessation of breathing – sometimes hundreds of times a night – for anywhere from a few seconds to over a minute, it’s no wonder that morning headaches are another one of the warning signs. Your Back of the Yards sleep apnea specialist understands how important a good night’s rest is. With the use of a customized oral appliance that fits in your mouth like a sports mouth guard, the soft tissues obstructing the passage of air can be kept in place, resulting in quiet, rejuvenating slumber. Being excessively fatigued during your wakeful hours is very dangerous. Falling asleep on the job, or behind the wheel can result in disastrous effects, even death. According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, drowsy driving accounts for at least 328,000 motor vehicle accidents a year, 6,400 of which prove to be fatal.
