Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Millions of individuals snore in their sleep. While it may not directly seem to affect the individual snoring, it can ruin a good night's rest for their sleeping partners. Additionally, it may be a sign of a serious concern - sleep apnea.

Excessive snoring is a common sign of sleep apnea, which is a sleeping disorder that affects millions of Americans; many, oftentimes go undiagnosed. This disorder results in individuals who literally stop breathing during their sleep. This can happen numerous times a night, and can greatly affect one's sleep. This keeps individuals from getting the oxygen they need for their body to rejuvenate every day, and can also be the reason for individuals who are regularly sick, have high blood pressure, and are at a higher risk for heart disease and strokes. They can sometimes experience daytime fatigue, which can cause individuals to fall asleep while working, reading, or driving.

Once sleep apnea has been diagnosed by a physician, the Dentists at Richmond Smile Center can help you treat your sleep apnea with a special oral appliance. This appliance can help open the airways that are obstructive to help you snore less and find relief from the causes and symptoms of this sleep disorder. These are affordable, custom-made appliances that are made just for you and your mouth for the best fit and function. They are the perfect alternative to unsightly, hard-to-use CPAP machines and unnecessary surgical procedures.

Expertise and knowledge of sleep apnea are essential in effectively treating the symptoms and condition. Dr. Martin has been practicing dentistry for over 30 years and has continually expanded his knowledge of sleep apnea and how it can affect one's life. He is able to offer a number of solutions to those who are struggling with this sleeping disorder to improve their quality of life.

Sleep apnea should not be taken lightly-it can affect your everyday routine, and can also increase your risk for several deadly conditions and diseases. If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, visit the Dentists at Richmond Smile Center today to help you sleep better and alleviate your sleep apnea condition.
