Sleep Restfully Again
If you snore loudly and feel tired even after a full night’s sleep, you might have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. Depending on the type of sleep apnea that you suffer from, a dentist might be the perfect solution to your sleeping problem.
Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) problem that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep.
As a result, the quality of your sleep is poor, which makes you tired during the day. Sleep apnea is a leading cause of excessive daytime sleepiness.
The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea. In this condition, the airway collapses or becomes blocked during sleep. This causes shallow breathing or breathing pauses.
When you try to breathe, any air that squeezes past the blockage can cause loud snoring. Obstructive sleep apnea is more common in people who are overweight, but it can affect anyone.
