Restorative Dentist in Chesapeake, VA
Does your partner complain that you snore? Have you been asked to sleep in a different room because your partner can’t sleep over the sounds of your snoring? Have you ever woken yourself up in the middle of sleep due to your snoring or gasping for air? Do you have High Blood Pressure or are overweight? If you answered YES to any of these, you may have a serious condition that could be affecting your health. If you didn’t, then you might be in denial…
Dr. Tanya Brown and the entire team at The Center for Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry understand that loud, disruptive snoring takes a toll, both on the person who snores and on their loved ones. Even worse, snoring may be a sign of a more serious issue, such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), a condition in which a person stops breathing dozens or even hundreds of times a night. Studies have shown that 50% of people who snore also have some form of Sleep Apnea.
Some other symptoms of Sleep Apnea/OSA include:
- Daytime sleepiness
- Chronic fatigue
- Morning headaches
- Impaired short-term memory or judgment
So what does all this mean to you? It is important to have a Sleep screening and evaluation if you snore, have been told you snore, or feel that these symptoms may apply to you. Untreated Snoring or Sleep Apnea can lead to even more serious health issues, such as heart attack, stroke, diabetes, or even death.
Whether your issue is Sleep Apnea/OSA or simply a loud, obnoxious snore, Dr. Brown will create a custom solution to allow deep, quiet, unobstructed sleep. Contact our office for a Snoring consultation and evaluation today and SLEEP BETTER TONIGHT!
