Do you consistently feel tired during the day DESPITE sleeping throughout the night? Does your partner complain about your loud snoring? Do you suffer from depression, mood swings, or have trouble focusing? If so, you very likely could be suffering from sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea is a very serious disorder where a person temporarily stops breathing for short periods time throughout the night, preventing them from getting the deep, restful sleep they need. This is most often caused by the soft tissues in the mouth and throat relaxing into and blocking the airway. Left untreated, sleep apnea can make a person consistently exhausted and even raise their blood pressure to dangerous levels.
Fortunately, relief from this condition can be found right here at Ellicott City Smiles.
