What is Sleep Apnea?
This disorder keeps you up at night and prevents adequate rest. You may not even know that you have a problem, but everyone around you can hear you snore loudly. It’s often the result of an inability to comfortably breathe while resting.
Common Symptoms include:
- Loud Breathing or snoring
- Fatigue or sleepiness during the daytime
- Dry mouth and throat
- Difficulty with memory or concentration
You might also stop breathing entirely at times. Some patients wake up gasping for air. This alarming condition occurs when your resting body tenses up and you hold your breath while sleeping.
This disorder damages your overall health. It leads to higher blood pressure, increased risk of stroke, diabetes, and depression. If you suspect that you may have sleep apnea, seek a clinical diagnosis.
At White and Haines, we can help. The secret to finding a better night’s rest is to open your restricted air passage. We create a custom fitted mouth guard for you.
