Do you often wake up in the morning feeling like you haven’t slept at all, even if you did sleep for 7-8 hours? Have your loved ones teased you about your constant loud snoring? These are both telltale signs of sleep apnea, a disorder that affects over 20 million Americans. At Temple Choice Dental, we help patients, offering sleep apnea treatment in Temple, TX using specially made oral appliance to wear to bed, which will allow them to breathe normally throughout the night and wake up feeling rested and ready to take on the day.
Sleep apnea is characterized by brief but frequent lapses in breathing throughout the night that prevent someone from ever reaching the deep, restorative stages of the sleep cycle. Often, this is caused by the soft tissues of the airway coming together and obstructing the flow of oxygen. This forces someone to partially wake up so they start breathing again. In severe cases, this can happen up to 100 times an hour. Usually, a person doesn’t remember any of this in the morning—they just feel tired despite “sleeping” the entire night.
