Eastford sleep apnea
Many people suffer with sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a serious medical disorder which cannot only make you feel tired, but it can also affect your health. At Longobardi Dental, our expert dentist, Dr. Mark Longobardi, can provide you with effective treatment for your Eastford sleep apnea
If you have been waking up feeling extremely tired in the morning, even though you have had a full night’s sleep, you may have sleep apnea. People with sleep apnea also often have headaches in the morning and have trouble with concentration during the day. If you have sleep apnea, you have a condition in which are airways are momentarily blocked many times during the night while you sleep. People with sleep apnea are known to snore loudly, and can even be heard gasping for breath in the middle of the night. When a patient has their breathing interrupted by sleep apnea, they usually wake up, resume breathing, and immediately fall asleep, many times during the night. When they wake up in the morning they have no recollection that this has occurred. However, sleep apnea has been associated with many serious medical conditions including heart problems, high blood pressure, and even stroke. For these reasons, it is very important that you come to see our dentists for effective treatment of your Eastford sleep apnea. At our dental practice, we offer sleep apnea treatment using oral appliances. These oral appliances are custom-made, and are worn during sleeping hours. The appliance will actually stop the tongue and the soft tissues in the back of the throat from blocking airflow while you are sleeping. This treatment is completely non-invasive; the appliance is comfortable to wear, and very easy to transport. It is also extremely easy to take care of. These oral appliances have been proven to be extremely effective in treating mild-to-moderate cases of sleep apnea.
