Millions of people across the US have sleep apnea. This is a chronic condition where the individual can stop breathing hundreds of times over the course of the night. Symptoms of sleep apnea include snoring, waking up choking, out of breath, restless sleep, morning headaches, fatigue, and difficulty staying asleep.
Sleep apnea can disrupt the deep sleep cycle, causing persistent sleep deprivation. This deprivation can not only cause fatigue but leads to increased risk for high blood pressure, depression, diabetes, stroke, and heart disease.
Oral Appliance Therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). A custom-fit oral sleep appliance fits like a mouthguard and can improve your sleep, restore your alertness and revitalize your health.
