Dental Mouth Appliances Can Relieve Sleep Apnea and Snoring

Getting quality, consistent sleep is crucial to good health. Individuals with sleeping disorders are at risk for more than just baggy eyes. Lack of sleep can lead to the following:

Strain on Heart – Sleep apnea can lead to high blood pressure, which can ultimately enlarge the heart. This puts the individual at risk for serious medical issues such as heart disease, heart attack and stroke.

Diminished Mental Focus – It’s hard to be at your best when you’re both physically and mentally exhausted. Lack of sleep can affect your job performance, personal interactions and daily tasks.

Headaches – Headaches are a common symptom when your body does not get the sleep it needs.

Lowered Oxygen Levels –Consistently pausing your breathing during the night can lead to reduced oxygen levels in your blood, which may result in constricted blood vessels or other issues down the line.

Weight Gain – Studies show that lack of sleep can lead to weight gain. When people don’t get enough sleep they have a increased levels of hunger hormone (ghrelin) and on average consume about 300 calories more per day more than those who got enough sleep.
