Sleep Apnea and Snoring
In some cases, snoring results from sleep apnea. If you suspect this condition, we can help with your diagnosis and offer sleep apnea treatment in Centennial.
Remember, not everyone who snores has sleep apnea, but it is crucial to learn whether you have the condition.
What Is Sleep Apnea?
People with sleep apnea stop breathing several times during the night, which can lead to a host of severe health issues, including:
- High blood pressure
- Sudden heart attack
- Kidney disease
- And more
Fortunately, a timely diagnosis and treatment can significantly lower your risks for these complications.
What Are the Signs of Sleep Apnea?
Aside from snoring, sleep apnea may have few signs early on. But eventually, you might notice:
- Daytime sleepiness
- Irritability and depression
- Throat irritation
- Waking up through the night
How We Treat Sleep Apnea
The CPAP machine is the most common sleep apnea treatment. However, many patients find this machine bulky and hard to acclimate to restful sleep. Your Centennial dentist offers an alternative.
Our oral appliance fits over the teeth and gently keeps the airway open throughout the night.
