What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that affects breathing.
The signs of sleep apnea may be subtle, but if left untreated sleep apnea can become more severe or even life-threatening.
If you have sleep apnea you will stop breathing for brief periods during sleep. This can lead to many adverse effects, including poor quality of sleep, morning headaches, and daytime drowsiness.
There are two types of sleep apnea, obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea.
Obstructive sleep apnea is the more common type, and it occurs when the airway becomes blocked during sleep. Central sleep apnea is less common, and it occurs when the brain fails to send the correct signals to the muscles that control breathing.
It is also possible for someone to suffer from both, a condition called mixed sleep apnea.
However, you may be able to purchase certain types of mouthpieces that may help reduce signs and symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea.
While these tips will not treat your sleep apnea, they may provide some relief for signs and symptoms so you feel better during the day.
If you are experiencing difficulty breathing at night, snoring, or excessive daytime sleepiness, it is important to speak with your doctor about the possibility of having obstructive sleep apnea and undergo a sleep study to determine if you do have this condition.
Only then can you begin treatment and start feeling better by getting a quality night of sleep.
It’s very simple. The AirSnore™ mouthpiece moulds itself to the inside of your mouth, ensuring a comfortable fit that’s just right for you. Once in place, it moves your jaw a little to open your upper airway. This allows you to breathe more easily while you sleep, and stops you snoring.
