Snoring can be bad for your relationships at home. Worse than that, it can also signal that something a little more dangerous is going on with your body, such as sleep apnea. This is a problem that impacts millions of Americans causing them to experience pauses in breathing at night. Untreated sleep apnea can also can place a person at a much higher risk for serious medical problems like heart disease. Oh, and it can also KILL YOU!
Don’t worry, as part of our general dentistry program, our own Dr. McCabe can help sleep apnea patients find some relief without the need for a CPAP machine. We’ll use a comfortable (and portable) oral appliance instead. This appliance sits on the lower jaw and keeps your airways open while you sleep.
