When Snoring is More than Snoring

Snoring can be a nuisance to the ones we love, but sometimes it’s actually something to be concerned about. If you snore, wake up in the middle of the night gasping for air, awake with a dry throat and never seem to feel rested, you may have Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea occurs when your airway collapses during sleep, causing you to stop breathing for seconds at a time, multiple times throughout the night. The symptoms may seem harmless, but over time, the oxygen deprivation takes a significant toll on your body. Those who experience obstructive sleep apnea may be at greater risk for:

  • Cardiovascular problems
  • High blood pressure
  • Complications with medication and surgery
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Mood disorders such as depression and anxiety
  • Accidents at work or behind the wheel

How We Can Help

In order to provide you with the most effective sleep apnea treatment available, our doctors have studied under Dr. Daniel Klauer at the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Northern Indiana. Once you’ve been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, we will work with your health practitioner to create a customized oral appliance to help alleviate your symptoms. A properly fitted oral appliance can stabilize your jaw and tongue, allowing you to breathe freely during sleep.
