Sleep Apnea Treatments | Grand Rapids, MI
Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that causes people to stop breathing while they sleep (sometimes hundreds of times a night).
Thankfully, our Grand Rapids dentists have experience treating patients with obstructive sleep apnea so they can get a better night’s sleep.
Symptoms of Sleep Apnea
You may have sleep apnea if you wake up several times a night to gasp for air. While you may not realize you do this, your partner may have witnessed it. It’s not uncommon for patients with sleep apnea to snore and gasp for air so loudly that it wakes their partners. You may also experience tiredness as soon as you wake up in the morning or headaches.
Sleep apnea is a serious issue because it means your brain and the rest of your body isn’t getting the oxygen it needs while you sleep. If you suspect you have sleep apnea, schedule an appointment with our cosmetic dentists as soon as possible. The best evidence for sleep apnea is a sleep study prescribed by a physician. There are several non-surgical options available today to treat sleep apnea. Call us so we may review your case and help you find relief.
