How An Oral Appliance Can Help You
When you’re not getting quality sleep, it can impact every aspect of your life. Patients who suffer from sleep apnea are at high risk for a range of mental and physical health issues, which is why it’s essential to seek treatment for the condition.
At Progressive Dentistry, Sleep, & Wellness, Dr. McCoy can provide a customized oral appliance to relieve your sleep apnea symptoms. Learn how our sleep apnea solutions can benefit you.
Reduce Health Risks
Untreated sleep apnea can put you at risk for serious health conditions including diabetes, strokes, and heart disease. By managing your symptoms with an oral appliance, you can improve your overall health while spending less time at the doctor.
Most importantly, avoiding these conditions will save you time and money while helping you live a longer life.
Feel More Energized
If you suffer from sleep apnea, you likely feel tired every day, even when you get a full night’s rest. This is because the condition constantly interrupts your sleep throughout the night, often without your awareness. As a result, you’ll frequently experience fatigue and lack of motivation throughout the day.
With the help of an oral appliance, you can sleep peacefully through the night and wake up feeling energized.
Improve Your Relationships
One of the most common symptoms of sleep apnea is heavy snoring. If you share your bed with a partner, snoring can interfere with their sleep as well and create a rift in your relationship. In addition, sleep apnea has been linked to sexual dysfunction and decreased libido.
By getting the treatment you need for your condition, you can eliminate snoring and enjoy a happy, healthy relationship with your partner.
Control Your Emotions
Your REM cycle is a process that occurs every night while you’re sleeping. It plays a huge role in balancing your brain chemistry and regulating your emotions. Since sleep apnea disrupts your REM cycle, it also affects your ability to control your emotions. This increases your risk of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts.
Treating your sleep apnea and getting the quality rest you need will help you feel more positive and emotionally stable.
Live Life Unrestrained
In the past, the most common treatment for sleep apnea was often a CPAP machine. However, these devices are loud, uncomfortable to wear, and force you to sleep on your back, making them too inconvenient for many patients to use.
As a more comfortable and less invasive alternative, Dr. McCoy can provide an oral appliance that will allow you to live life on your own terms.
