Bedtime should be a chance for you to rest and recharge your batteries. However, if you are suffering from sleep apnea, you might not be getting the rest you need, and could be putting your health at risk. During sleep apnea, your body is not getting the oxygen it needs, which can lead to high blood pressure, liver problems and heart disease. Sleep apnea also contributes to snoring, so everyone in your home may not be getting enough sleep! You should talk to our team If you are experiencing:

  • Extreme drowsiness during the day
  • Personality changes and irritability
  • Difficulty staying asleep
  • Snoring
  • Waking up with a very dry or sore throat
  • Frequent morning headaches

While stress is a part of everyone’s life, if it is causing you to clench or grind your teeth as you sleep, your teeth may suffer. You could be suffering from a TMJ or temporomandibular joint disorder. If you have any of the following symptoms, contact our office:

  • Extreme drowsiness during the day
  • Personality changes and irritability
  • Difficulty staying asleep
  • Snoring
  • Waking up with a very dry or sore throat
  • Frequent morning headaches
