What Happens At Night
Ignoring your snoring is not a good idea … and not just because it might get you banished from the bedroom by your partner.
When left untreated, sleep apnea has been associated with a number of other health risks. People with this condition are more likely to have high blood pressure as well as cardiovascular and heart disease. It probably won’t surprise you that they are more likely to have heart attacks and strokes, too. Sleep apnea can lead to sleep deprivation, which raises your risk of being in a car accident.
When you have sleep apnea, you stop breathing when you fall asleep. Depending on the severity of your condition, you may these stoppages hundreds of times every night. When these stoppages occur, your body’s response is to wake you up. These can be so brief that you don’t remember them, but this does allow you to take a few breaths before you drift off again.
Your snoring can be a consequence of this because your airway becomes blocked when you have obstructive sleep apnea. This forces air through a narrower opening (until it closes completely). That causes soft tissues to vibrate, which leads to your snoring.
Improve The Quality Of Your Sleep
Sleep is a valuable part of your overall health. To get the full benefits, however, you need to reach the stages of deep sleep. This is when your body can really recover from the daily stresses it endures.
As we pointed out earlier, you rarely get deep sleep if you have untreated sleep apnea. To correct this, you need a solution that will allow you to continue breathing. You need a treatment that will keep your airways open while you are asleep. In turn, that can minimize or even eliminate your snoring. That’s something your loved ones can appreciate as well.
We can make an oral appliance that you wear while you sleep. This mouthguard shifts the position of your lower jaw. That keeps your airway open, so you can sleep deeper and wake up feeling rested.
