Living With Sleep Apnea? You Deserve a Better Night’s Sleep.

Are You Living With Sleep Apnea?

Do you wake up feeling unrested each day? Have you been told you snore? You may be suffering from a serious medical condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea. This common sleep disorder causes you to stop breathing multiple times throughout the night, often for up to 10 seconds or longer, depriving your body and brain of much-needed oxygen. Alarmingly, many people are living with sleep apnea, completely unaware. Even a single sign or symptom of this dangerous sleep disturbance warrants prompt evaluation by a qualified professional in Charlotte, NC, such as Dr. Thomas Layton of Layton Dentistry.

Sleep Apnea Facts and Statistics

One in every 15 people in the United States experience some level of sleep apnea.

Those with untreated sleep apnea are four times more likely to suffer a stroke, and three times more likely to experience heart disease.

Men have a higher incidence of sleep apnea than do women.

Untreated sleep apnea can lead to serious health problems, including high blood pressure, stroke, heart failure, irregular heartbeats, heart attacks, diabetes, depression, worsening of ADHD, and headaches.

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is the most common treatment for sleep apnea. Other treatments include lifestyle changes, oral appliances, surgery, and positional therapy.

Knowing the Symptoms of Sleep Apnea Could Save Your Life

Sleep apnea ranges from mild to severe, and is commonly exhibited by signs and symptoms that include:

Loud snoring, chortling or choking

Gasping for breath upon abrupt awakening

Repetitive breathing cessation throughout sleep

Waking frequently throughout the night

Grogginess, or feeling unrested upon waking

Frequent morning headaches

Trouble staying awake throughout the day

Anxiety, depression or irritability

Difficulty concentrating or maintaining mental clarity

Avoid Troubling Health Risks With Proper Diagnosis and Care

To diagnose sleep apnea, Dr. Layton has a sleep study he sends home with patients to diagnosis the severity of their sleep apnea. We offer mandibular reposition devices for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea, and also for severe sleep apnea patients that can not tolerate the CPAP device.
