Your body may be begging you for help!
Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are you waking up with headaches or a dry mouth and throat?
  • Do you forget things easily or have trouble concentrating?
  • Is your spouse fed up with your snoring?
  • Are you having difficulty losing weight?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, it’s time to take action! Our team at Blunston Dental Group can help you identify if you are suffering from sleep apnea, or a sleep breathing disorder and determine the best course of treatment for you!

  1. As airflow stops during a sleep apnea episode, the oxygen level in your blood drops.
  2. Your brain responds by briefly disturbing your sleep enough to kick start breathing — which often resumes with a gasp or a choking sound.
  3. If you have obstructive sleep apnea, you probably won’t remember these awakenings. Most of the time, you’ll stir just enough to tighten your throat muscles and open your windpipe.
  4. In central sleep apnea, you may be conscious of your awakenings.
  5. This can occur hundreds of times each night!
 

The resulting LACK OF OXYGEN can heighten your risk of stroke, cardiovascular disease, and other heart conditions. Plus, it can accelerate the aging process, compromise your safety, health and overall quality of life.
