About Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea is a potentially serious condition that causes a disruption of breathing during sleep—yet it is a disorder that many people don’t even know they have. Sleep apnea sufferers will often have episodes of choking and gasping for air throughout the night. While many patients do not remember these episodes, they can be detrimental to their overall health.
Some sleep apnea symptoms:
- Loud snoring
- High blood pressure
- Chronic sleepiness
- Waking up in a sweat during the night
At Hingham Dentistry, we offer oral appliances that can be useful in treating sleep apnea, so that you get a more restful and beneficial night of sleep.
The state of your overall health is closely linked with the state of your oral health. If you exhibit symptoms and think that you might have sleep apnea, we suggest you seek treatment options.
