Sleep Apnea Therapy
Sleep apnea is a disorder where a person briefly but frequently stops breathing throughout the night, and roughly 20 million Americans after currently suffering from it. If you can never seem to get enough sleep, frequently snore, or regularly wake up in the middle of the night feeling out of breath, then you may have this condition. Fortunately, the solution for many patients is as simple as wearing a custom-made mouthguard to bed that keeps the airway open. This can prevent the primary symptoms of sleep apnea while also causing someone to stop snoring, which is great news for them and their loved ones.
