What Is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder that causes you to stop breathing while you are asleep. This triggers a panic response in your body and jerks you awake – though you likely don’t know it since you fall back to sleep right away. You never get the chance to reach the deep, restful sleep you need to fully recover from your day. The result is a restless night’s sleep that seems to do more harm than good.
Symptoms of Sleep Apnea
Here are some of the most common symptoms of sleep apnea.
- Chronic Snoring
- Sore Throat
How Beck Dental Care Help
Our highly trained dental team will evaluate your condition and help determine whether you are suffering from sleep apnea. We use the Epworth Sleepiness Scale to screen patients for sleep apnea. If we suspect the disorder, we can fit you with a custom oral appliance to help keep your airway open while you sleep and mitigate your sleep apnea symptoms. This is a great alternative for those who can’t tolerate their CPAP machine.
