Snoring Can Be Serious!
Help for the Symptoms of Sleep Apnea
Do you know if you snore? If you have a significant other, you definitely know!
But snoring can be more than an annoyance. It can be a sign of sleep apnea, where your breathing actually stops and restarts, sometimes hundreds of time a night.
Sleep apnea must be diagnosed by a doctor because it is associated with a variety of problems:
- Increased risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, hypertension, and other serious health conditions
- Daytime Sleepiness
- Chronic Fatigue
- Impaired Memory and Judgment
- Mood Disturbances
Interrupting the sleep patterns that lead to snoring or sleep apnea may help. Dr. Norton can fit you with a TAP®3 appliance, a comfortable mouth guard that helps keep your jaw and tongue from dropping back and restricting the air passages.
