Sleep Apnea Treatment That Doesn’t Make You Feel Like Darth Vader
What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a potentially dangerous condition that causes a person to stop breathing for a few seconds while asleep. Some people may even stop breathing for over a minute!
Their body then wakes them up to get them breathing again. Some people may not wake up fully and not even realize they are suffering from the problem. However, the constant sleep disturbance leaves them feeling groggy and tired even after supposedly sleeping all night. Symptoms include:
How Is sleep apnea treated?
Conventional sleep apnea treatment is not particularly pleasant and many people stop or avoid using it, which can have serious negative health effects. It consists of wearing a mask that helps you breathe all night long.
Oral appliance sleep apnea treatment
Instead of messing with an uncomfortable mask, you can get a customized oral appliance that looks similar to a retainer. This device holds the lower jaw slightly forward, keeping the airway open and allowing you to breathe freely.
Bonus! If your sleep apnea causes you to snore, your sleep partner will also appreciate a peaceful night’s sleep.
