Snoring Can Be Serious!

Help for the Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

Help for the Symptoms of Sleep ApneaDo 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.
