Do you snore? Wake up still feeling tired and groggy in the morning?
While many of us snore during sleep, consistent snoring should be evaluated to determine if you are suffering from a potentially dangerous sleep disorder known as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). In addition to affecting the quality of your sleep each night, OSA also affects your overall health and puts you at an increasing risk for both cardiovascular and systemic related diseases.
Alexandria Dental Health & Smile Studio in downtown Alexandria offers diagnosis and treatment for sleep disorders, including sleep apnea. Restoring a good night’s sleep with effective MicrO2 oral appliance therapy will also improve your overall health and well-being. Patients who with sleep apnea are more likely to experience a wide range of health conditions as a result of the lack of oxygen flow. MicrO2 oral sleep appliances open the airway allowing patients to get a healthy and restful nights sleep.
