Loud snoring is one of the most common nuisances cited by partners of patients with sleep apnea. If your spouse’s snoring keeps you from getting the sleep you so desperately need, it’s only a matter of time before one of you ends up sleeping on the couch or in another room. Fortunately, the problem of excessive snoring caused by sleep apnea can be solved with treatment at the Jacksonville Beach, FL practice of Dr. Scott Wagner. With sleep apnea therapy at Eccella Smiles, you and your partner can finally enjoy the quiet, peaceful, and uninterrupted sleep you deserve.
Understanding Sleep Apnea Treatment
Patients who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea experience lapses in their breathing numerous times throughout the night. This occurs when the airway is blocked by the tongue and soft palate. In order to correct this problem, Dr. Wagner may recommend a customized oral appliance that keeps the jaw positioned properly. The comfortable mouthguard helps to keep the airways open for easy breathing as you sleep, eliminating instances of sleep apnea as well as snoring.
Why is Sleep Apnea Treatment Important?
In addition to stopping snoring, sleep apnea treatment helps to reduce the risk of complications linked to the condition. Untreated sleep apnea has been correlated with a variety of serious health conditions, including heart disease, excessive daytime fatigue, liver problems, stroke, and respiratory failure. Treatment from Dr. Wagner can help to drastically diminish the chances that a patient with obstructive sleep apnea will suffer from these and other problems.
