If you may have sleep apnea, which you can determine by observing the symptoms you are experiencing, we at Schramm Dentistry are pleased to have a solution for dealing with it. Remember, left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to serious consequences, including a negative effect on your heart.
How do you detect sleep apnea? Some indications are ones that you can discover for yourself, while others require the help of your bed partner, if applicable. Clear signs include headaches, dry mouth, or a sore throat when you wake up, or difficulties getting up in the morning; being tired during the day, even though you slept a sufficient number of hours; sudden awakening during your sleep cycle with a sensation that you are choking or gasping; night sweats; and sexual dysfunction. Do you snore or sleep restlessly? This is where you will need someone else to assist. If you have one or more of the listed symptoms, though, you should come in to see our dentist in Charlotte NC
. Do not just ignore it or hope it goes away on its own. There are certain lifestyle changes that you should consider in addition to treatment you get from our dentist in Charlotte NC
. Being overweight, smoking, and either using sleeping pills or alcohol too close to bedtime are all associated with the onset of sleep apnea. The good news is that doing something to address the situation is not difficult at all. We will provide you with an appliance you can wear; one that will keep your airway open while you sleep, and eliminate your symptoms. This appliance is custom-made for maximum comfort and precise fit. You just put it in before you go to sleep, and take it out in the morning when you wake.
