What Is Sleep Apnea?
How do you feel when you wake up in the morning? If you have a headache, feel irritable, or are very sleepy during the day, it is possible that you have sleep apnea and should visit a family dental care center. Millions of Americans suffer from sleep apnea: a condition which interrupts your breathing and prevents you from getting the deep sleep you need to feel rested. During your next Houston preventive dentistry appointment, talk to your dentist about your sleep issues as well as about your cracked teeth. Your dentist can fit you with an oral appliance, often known as a snore guard, to help open your breathing passages for better, more restful sleep. If you are unsure whether you have sleep apnea, you may need to undergo a sleep study for an accurate diagnosis. Ask your sleep partner if they notice gasping, choking, loud snoring, or other irregular breathing patterns during the night. A family dental care center can help not just you, but also your sleep partner to get a better night’s rest.
