Does your loved one snore? Get your loved one, and your relationship, the help they need!
Having a bed partner with a sleep disorder such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea can negatively impact your sleep as well as theirs. According to researchers, many couples don’t sleep in the same bed as their partners anymore due to snoring, affecting their intimacy, happiness, and quality of life.
Severe snoring or Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a life threatening medical issue which has been linked to other health problems such as Heart Disease, Hypertension (High Blood Pressure), Diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease due to oxygen deprivation. Chronic Fatigue from poor sleep also increases one’s risks of having automobile and work-related accidents.
Dentists can be the first to recognize signs of sleep apnea, and therefore have the ability not only to save a life, but to also save a relationship when we screen and treat our patients for sleep related breathing disorders like Obstructive Sleep Apnea. For many patients an oral appliance or mouthguard can be made to open the airway and improve breathing, effectively reducing snoring and sleep apnea without a cumbersome face mask.
