Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea is a common disorder that affects 25 million Americans of all ages. Those who have this disorder stop breathing for at least 10 seconds while they sleep. This lack breathing causes the person with sleep apnea to partially awaken, leading to fragmented non-refreshing sleep. This can inevitably occur hundreds of times a night, sometimes for a minute or longer.
A good indicator of sleep apnea is snoring. Snoring is not only disruptive, but can lead to several medical problems. Some of the most common medical problems that are a direct result of sleep apnea include:
- Loud snoring
- Choking and gasping during sleep
- Memory loss
- High blood pressure
- Coronary heart disease
- Drowsy driving
- Daytime sleepiness
Dr. Ray Nunnery can help patients significantly reduce sleep apnea by creating a comfortable, custom dental device that is used during sleep. It is generally beneficial for those who wish to improve the quality of their lives and their overall health.
