An estimated 30 millions people have sleep apnea in the United States, according to the American Sleep Apnea Association. If you are one of them, there is a decent chance that you don’t know it.
Getting tested is the only way to confirm a diagnosis. Our team at Warwick Valley Dental can help you set up a test, and if you have obstructive sleep apnea, we can help you treat it, too. Here are some reasons that you should.
1. You Will Stop Snoring
If you are tired of hearing people complain about your snoring, then you can be sure that the people complaining are tired of listening to you snore. Since snoring is a common symptom of sleep apnea, treating your sleep disorder also mean quieter nights for the people closest to you.
2. You Will Be Healthier
When you have this condition, you stop breathing dozens or even hundreds of times every night. That can contribute to your increased risk of hypertension, heart attacks, strokes, and other health problems. Improving the quality of your sleep can be good for you.
3. You Will Have More Energy
Sleep apnea also leads to sleep deprivation. This can leave you feeling fatigued and fighting daytime sleepiness. When you wake up feeling rested and refreshed, you will understand how much the quality of your sleep affects you throughout the day.
