This summer, you may be looking forward to your first family getaway in a few years. Don’t let sleep apnea spoil the fun for you or your loved ones. Schedule an appointment with us to discuss if an oral appliance could help you.
Lack of Sleep Hurts Your Health
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which you stop breathing when you fall asleep. Your body responds to this by waking you up frequently. You may not remember this, but it is enough to prevent you from getting deep, restful sleep. This can increase your risk of cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, and strokes. Plus, it can leave you feeling sleep deprived, which can cause you to become agitated easily, feel fatigued, and can increase your risk of being in an automobile accident.
Snoring Affects Others
Loud and persistent snoring is one of the most common signs of obstructive sleep apnea. When you snore, it can prevent others from getting the rest they need. They could leave you and your traveling companions all feeling irritable in the morning.
Find a Portable Solution
CPAP machines can be effective, but they aren’t always convenient for travel. They may be unusable for a camping trip. Instead, get a fix that can fit in your pocket with an oral appliance from our office. This slightly repositions your lower jaw to keep your airway open. This allows you to get deep sleep without all the snoring that keeps your family and friends awake.
