Snoring can be more than a simple annoyance or a family joke. Did you know that snoring can be related to serious health issues? Recent studies have shown that severe snoring is often related to sleep apnea.
What Is Sleep Apnea?
The term “apnea” means “without breath” and therefore indicates that someone suffering from sleep apnea goes without breathing for short intervals throughout their sleep. Sound dangerous? It is! Sleep apnea can not only affect your energy level, but your brain and your heart function as well.
Side Effects of Sleep Apnea
Obviously, not breathing can be an issue in and of itself, but these periods of not breathing can cause long-term damage as well as short-term. Lack of oxygen can cause damage to your brain. The unrestful sleep of those suffering from sleep apnea can affect patients through their daily routine, leaving them tired, unable to function as they should and even unclear thinking and processing.
Sleep apnea should be diagnosed and treated before more severe complications occur.
Depending on the type of sleep apnea you are suffering from, Dr. Brady Camp can create a customized solution for you. A mouth apparatus can be just the ticket to help you breathe without obstruction when you sleep.
