What Is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a disorder that results in periodic pauses in your breathing throughout the night. This can happen multiple times per minute if you have severe sleep apnea. Left untreated, sleep apnea can increase your risk of serious health conditions.
What Are the Symptoms of Sleep Apnea?
Some of the symptoms of sleep apnea are:
- Chronic Snoring
- Gasping for Air While Sleeping
- Sore Throat
- Inability to Concentrate
How Can Beckham Dental Help Me?
First, we conduct a sleep test to determine the extent of your sleep apnea. This take-home sleep test will also check for bruxism (grinding teeth). The results of your sleep test are read by a board certified sleep specialist, and then we’ll work up a unique treatment plan based on your results. We could treat your sleep apnea with a simple oral appliance. For those who need it, CPAP is provided to help you sleep soundly.
