Snoring and sleep apnea can seriously impact the quality and length of your sleep. Our Halifax dentists can diagnose and treat sleep disorders, and suggest devices to help.
Signs of Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that causes you to repeatedly stop and start breathing. You may be suffering from sleep apnea if you experience any of the following symptoms:
- Breathing interrupted during sleep for between 10 seconds to 1 minute or more (often noticed by your sleep partner)
- Loud snoring
- Insomnia (not able to stay asleep)
- Struggling for air while sleeping
- Morning headaches
- Lack of energy or sleepiness during the day, even after a full night's sleep
What are snoring & sleep apnea devices?
Designed to relieve symptoms of sleep apnea and snoring, these dental appliances help improve airflow by further opening airways while you sleep.
Many different types of snoring and sleep apnea devices are available, so ask your dentist which type of oral device is right for you.
