Snoring and Sleep Apnea Risks

Does your spouse snore loudly at night?  Do you?  It could be more than just an annoyance.  About half of people who snore loudly suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, a condition that occurs when breathing is partially obstructed during sleep.   These are a few of the risks associated with obstructive sleep apnea:
  • Daytime sleepiness.
  • Decreased productivity and performance at work.
  • Strained personal relationships.
  • High blood pressure.
  • Increased risk of heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and depression.
  • Memory and concentration problems.
Although CPAP is a common treatment, it can be uncomfortable.  At Perfect Smile Maker, we work with patients to find a comfortable treatment solution.  Oral appliance therapy is a viable alternative to CPAP and many patients have found treatment to be successful.  Similar to a mouth guard, oral appliances are custom fit to your unique smile.  This means that they are comfortable, convenient and portable. If you think that you or a loved one is suffering from sleep apnea, contact Perfect Smile Maker by calling 516-482-2215.  We look forward to helping you improve your health and treating sleep apnea in a way that is comfortable and convenient for you.
