At Winnipeg's Fort Rouge Dental Group we offer dental appliances to help relieve snoring and symptoms of sleep apnea, that disrupt sleep for you or your partner.
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that can cause periodic disruptions in breathing during sleep. Airflow stops and starts again, often jolting you awake. This disruption can last up to 20 seconds and can occur numerous times a night preventing you from having a good nights sleep.
If you suffer from chronic sleep apnea, while you may not recall these occurrences, you may wake feeling unwell or restless. If left untreated, the lack of deep sleep can lead to other health issues.
How do I know if I have sleep apnea?
If you experience extreme drowsiness during the day, loud snoring and restless sleep, morning headaches, or episodes of obstructed breathing during sleep you may be experiencing sleep apnea.
