This process keeps you alive and reopens your airways, but the problem begins again as soon as you fall back asleep. Many people with sleep apnea experience this cycle up to 30 times per hour, all night long! Men and women of all ages can develop sleep apnea, but smoking, being overweight, and having a family history of sleep apnea are all risk factors.
Unfortunately, sleep apnea isn’t just a sleep issue. In addition to the fatigue, inability to concentrate, and irritability that it causes, sleep apnea also makes your body vulnerable to serious complications like heart disease and diabetes. It’s important to see a doctor as soon as possible for a sleep apnea evaluation.
Your dental professionals at Sycamore Dental can also help you address sleep apnea with a tongue retaining appliance or mandibular repositioning appliance. Both of these dental devices bring your jaw forward and stop the tongue from blocking your airway. Many patients feel more comfortable using these dental solutions than a large, noisy CPAP machine.
