Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder where your breathing is periodically obstructed as you sleep by collapsing tissues in the back of your throat. When you stop breathing repeatedly during the night, your brain and the rest of your body may not get enough oxygen. Your untreated sleep apnea can then lead to other serious medical conditions like hypertension, stroke, and heart failure. Men are more likely to have sleep apnea, but the risk for developing sleep apnea is also increased for obese patients and patients over 40.
Dr. Schramm can immediately alleviate your sleep apnea symptoms with a custom designed and minimally invasive dental appliance. These appliances can be worn at night while you sleep to keep your throat tissue from collapsing and keep your airway open. For the restful night’s sleep you deserve, and to protect your good health, make an appointment for a custom dental appliance from Schramm Dentistry today.
