Why Sleep Apnea is Dangerous
Have you been told you snore frequently and loudly most nights? Do you feel tired during the day or wake up often at night? If so, you may be suffering from sleep apnea, a condition that prevents you from breathing during the night and limits oxygen from getting to your brain. While this is concerning enough, long term sleep apnea can even increase your risk for high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke! This occurs when the soft tissues of the mouth block your airway while you lay down and air is unable to get to the lungs. At Imagine Your Smile, Dr. Mark Wilhelm offers effective sleep apnea treatments to improve your night’s rest and keep you healthy. Not to mention, your bed partner will likely be thankful for less snoring!
