If you snore loudly, wake up breathless in the middle of the night and are drowsy throughout the afternoon with no explanation, then you might be one of over 12 million Americans who are impacted by anti snoring.
Anti snoring is a condition where your breathing stops periodically during sleep, as much as 20-30 times a week. The constant wake-sleep, wake-sleep cycle prevents those with anti-snoring from achieving deep sleep, leading to a constant drowsy feeling during the day.
WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF SLEEP APNEA?
The following symptoms can indicate the existence of anti snoring. If you detect over one of these, contact the Montclair Dental Spa for a consultation.
Insomnia or difficulty sleeping.
Loud snoring throughout the night.
Waking up during the night short of breath.
Snorting or choking sounds during the night (indicating a restart of breathing).
Headaches upon waking in the morning.
Falling asleep unintentionally during the afternoon.
Extreme drowsiness throughout the day.
HOW IS SLEEP APNEA TREATED?
Treatments for anti snoring depends on the severity of every individual case, and the sort of apnea. Basic treatment might be behavioral, for example, patients are taught to shed weight, stop smoking, or sleep on their siderather than on their backs. Oral devices may be utilized to place the mouth inaway that prevents throat blockage. In more serious cases, surgery can be the best option.
Getting a Sleep Apnea Diagnosis.
If you suspect that you're anti snoring, contact the Montclair Dental Spa. Dr. Moussa can recommend a home sleep study conducted with specific equipment to diagnose the exact area of the problem, and prescribe proper treatment. "Based on your situation, treatment can demand an oral apparatus that I may custom produce for you," says Dr. Moussa.
