Get Better Sleep In 2019!

Sleep apnea is a nightly disorder where you stop breathing for seconds at a time, up to as much as a couple hundred times a night, because your airways become blocked.

A common sign that a person has sleep apnea is if they snore loudly almost every night, but aside from that, the signs aren’t so obvious.

Day after day, sleep apnea sufferers struggle to stay awake at work, at home, and behind the wheel. They never feel quite rested, no matter how early they went to bed or how late they woke up.

Staying on task or remembering simple things is an exhausting daily effort since their minds are always so cloudy with fatigue. There’s also the weight gain, and the increased risk for heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure.

What many of these sufferers may not realize is that they even have sleep apnea, let alone what it’s doing to their overall health.

*A Custom Oral Appliance Can Help*

You’ve probably heard about a CPAP machine for treating sleep apnea, or maybe you’re even using one.

If that’s the case, chances are you might not be using it all the time, or at all.

That’s because, if you’re like many sleep apnea sufferers, you might find the mask you have to wear while you sleep rather uncomfortable.

Maybe it’s too much of a hassle, given that you have to keep your CPAP machine thoroughly clean to avoid infection.

Or maybe the noise it makes all night, moving air constantly through the hose that connects the mask to the machine, is keeping your spouse awake.

The good news is that a CPAP isn’t your only option for sleep apnea treatment.

At Hawkins Complete Dental Service, we can create a custom oral appliance that fits just like a mouthguard. You wear it while you sleep, and it will keep your jaw in a position that lets air flow freely. The result is a quiet night with better rest!

*Say Goodbye To Sleep Apnea & Its Symptoms*

We’ve already talked about chronic nightly snoring, but that’s certainly not where sleep apnea’s impact on your life stops.

With our help, you can say goodbye to the symptoms of sleep apnea that are affecting your daily life and your health, such as:

*Weight gain

*Daytime fatigue

*Mornings with sore throat and dry mouth

*Frequent headaches

*Wakeful nightly episodes of breathlessness

*Memory and mood problems

When you visit Hawkins Complete Dental Service for a custom oral appliance, you’ll soon experience quiet, restful sleep each night and more energy each day.
