Sleep apnea is a common sleeping disorder. Many patients with sleep apnea don't realize they have it.
Sleep apnea significantly disrupts sleep and results in a less restful night for the sufferer, and possibly even their partner.
If left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to an increased risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, obesity, depression, heart failure and diabetes.
It can also increase the likelihood of developing arrhythmias (irregular heart beats) and of having work-related or driving accidents.
At Peachland Dental Centre, we have extensive experience in treating sleep apnea, and can help improve your snoring by creating a custom snore guard for you.
A snore guard is similar to a bite guard that we custom-fit it to your mouth. The role of the snore guard is to reduce or eliminate your snoring by repositioning your jaw and tongue to allow for unobstructed airflow, resulting in a more restful sleep.
This can leave you feeling more revitalized and energized in the morning!
Peachland Dental Centre is committed to 'greening' our office.
