Austin Dental Office Offers Help to Stop Snoring without a CPAP Machine
Your Austin dentist could help you stop snoring and get a better night’s sleep. Sleep apnea treatment is available at the Austin, TX dental office of Broberg and Tieken.
How can the dentist help you with snoring?
Snoring may be due to obstructive sleep apnea. OSA can lead to loud snoring intermingled with gasping for air. Because of an obstructed airway, you could be waking dozens of times per night as well. This leads to a number of health problems associated with lack of restful and restorative sleep.
Mild to moderate OSA sufferers may be good candidates for an oral appliance that opens the airway while you sleep. You can get fitted for this device at our Austin, TX dental office. Doctors Broberg and Tieken have had great success with this alternative to a CPAP machine. To find out if you are a good candidate, contact us.
Signs of OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea)
Snoring, continual fatigue, night eating, waking with a dry mouth, and daytime listlessness are all signs that you could have sleep apnea. It can impact how productive you are during the day and it can have a negative impact on your relationships and even your libido. You need adequate and restorative sleep and an alternative to a CPAP machine has some significant benefits.
- It’s soundless
- No more masks and elastic marks (plus associated rashes) on your face
- Highly effective in many cases
- A better night’s sleep for you and anyone else trying to sleep next to you!
Risks of Leaving Sleep Apnea Untreated
Many sleep apnea patients are non-compliant with their CPAP machine. Although it has a 100% success rate the rate of usage is very low. By neglecting the sleep apnea you’re keeping your partner awake but you’re also keeping yourself from getting the rest you need.
The consequences of leaving sleep apnea untreated could lead to a number of problems and risks. Heart attack, stroke, and high blood pressure are a few of the areas that sleep apnea sufferers need to be concerned about. In addition, being tired all the time will take a toll on your personal life, could impact your career, and could put your safety and the safety of others in jeopardy.
Whether you have mild or moderate sleep apnea and want a CPAP alternative or you suspect your snoring could be obstructive sleep apnea, make an appointment with us at our Austin dental office. We would be pleased to help you explore this option to help you get a better night’s sleep.
