From everyday stressors to underlying illnesses, there’s a lot that can prevent you from getting a good night’s sleep. In fact, 1 in 3 adults don’t get enough sleep. But did you know that you could find the solution to more restful and restorative sleep right at your dentist’s office?
Do you wake up feeling groggy, have dry mouth, or suffer from chronic snoring? These are all symptoms of sleep apnea, a sleep disorder that can have a damaging toll to your overall health down the line.
There Are Two Types of Sleep Apnea:
1. Obstructive sleep apnea, where the muscles in your throat, mouth, and jaw relax so much that they cause your airways to be obstructed.
2. Central sleep apnea, where your brain does not communicate with your muscles to breathe.
At Dental Solutions of Columbus, we have a treatment plan to help those who are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea.
We get a lot of questions about sleep disorders at our office, because many of them are related to your oral health and are all impactful to your overall health. If you’re not sure if you have a sleep disorder, you can take our handy sleep quiz to find out—and figure out the next steps to getting a good night’s sleep.
Sleep apnea is not the only reason for chronic snoring, which can not only be disruptive to your loved ones, but also to your overall health. Some of the causes of chronic snoring include excessive alcohol consumption, which is very damaging to your teeth, aging, nasal congestion, obesity, and pregnancy, to name a few. If you suffer from chronic snoring, we can help create a custom oral appliance to help correct the issue and improve your overall health.
