Are you tired of feeling exhausted all the time, even after a full night's sleep? Do you snore loudly or wake up feeling short of breath during the night? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you may be suffering from sleep apnea. Our team at Ethos Family Dental is dedicated to helping patients find relief from this common and often undiagnosed sleep disorder.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a condition in which a person's breathing is repeatedly interrupted during sleep. This can occur when the muscles in the throat relax and block the airway, causing the person to briefly wake up in order to restore normal breathing. Sleep apnea can lead to a variety of health problems, including daytime fatigue, high blood pressure, and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
How We Can Help
At Ethos Family Dental, we use advanced diagnostic techniques to identify the cause of your sleep apnea and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you get the restful sleep you need. One common treatment option is the use of a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine, which helps to keep the airway open during sleep. In some cases, a dental appliance may be recommended to help correct the alignment of the jaw and keep the airway open.
Don't let sleep apnea ruin your quality of life. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and take the first step towards finding relief.
