Sleep apnea is a very serious medical condition that many people suffer from. At Wayne Dental Care, our expert dentist, Dr. Ross Lesser, can provide you with treatment for your North Haledon sleep apnea problems.
When a person has sleep apnea, they actually stop breathing many times during the night for an extremely short period of time. During this time, your partner may even hear you gasping for air. Patients with sleep apnea, often snore loudly, and may even seem to snort in their sleep. At this point, the patient may be having trouble breathing and will momentarily wake up so that breathing is restored. He or she will then immediately fall asleep again. Patients who have sleep apnea are not even aware that they have this problem, but often wake up in the morning feeling as though they have had a very poor night’s sleep. However, these patients do not understand why they feel this way since they believe that they have had an excellent night’s sleep. It remains a mystery why they feel so exhausted upon awakening, and remain tired throughout their day. Problems with sleep apnea have been associated with other serious medical conditions including heart problems and even stroke and high blood pressure. So, if you are suffering with sleep apnea, it is important that it is treated. The good news is that today, mild-to-moderate sleep apnea can easily be treated with a night guard which can be prescribed by our dentist. This night guard will help to keep your airways open during your sleeping hours, making it impossible for related sleep apnea problems to occur. This appliance is very easy to take care of, and simple to transport, so you can be sure that you use it every night to protect yourself from the harmful problems resulting from North Haledon sleep apnea.
