Do you have the signs of a sleep disorder known as sleep apnea? Sleep apnea manifests in the cessation of breathing for ten seconds or longer at a time as you sleep. If this condition is undiagnosed and untreated, not only can it prevent you from getting a good night’s sleep, but it can also lead to other long-term illness including high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke.
If you snore when you sleep, have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, experience heart palpitations, or anxiety you may be experiencing the effects of sleep apnea.
What does this mean for you? This lack of quality sleep can leave you feeling sleepy during the day, resulting in frequent morning headaches, and feeling mentally foggy and experiencing memory loss.
To determine proper treatment, you will need to be evaluated with a high-tech monitoring system that tracks your breathing as you sleep. Once a diagnosis has been made you can be treated and finally get the sleep you deserve with dental sleep therapy.
We encourage you to work with our prosthodontists to determine if you have mild to moderate sleep apnea. With this level of sleep apnea, our custom sleep therapy oral appliance can prevent the tongue from blocking your air passage and keeping your jaw in a position to prevent airway blockage.
Dr. Taylor Goggins and Dr. Roxanna Esguerra encourage you to receive the quality sleep your body needs by calling 303-427-4120 and setting up a consultation. At Denver Restorative Dentistry in Broomfield, Colorado we look forward to protecting your oral health and your well-being!
