Comfortable Sleep Apnea Treatment
Putting Jackson, CA Back to Sleep
Sleep disorders affect around 70-90 million or roughly one-fourth of the population. Studies show that 40% of middle-aged men and 30% of middle-aged women snore. If you snore and frequently wake up during the night, you may have sleep apnea.
The real health risk associated with sleep apnea isn’t snoring – it’s when snoring stops. When the snoring stops, so does your breathing. Your brain detects the lack of oxygen, and prompts you to wake up and draw a breath. This cycle can repeat hundreds of times during the night. Talk about exhausting!
Left untreated, sleep apnea can shorten the average life span by 10 years. If you suspect you may have sleep apnea, or if you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea and use a CPAP, see the dentists at Jackson Creek Dental Group.
For the treatment of sleep apnea, we offer alternatives to the CPAP.
