Dealing with Sleep Apnea at Dental Asensio
Every day at Dental Asensio, we meet many patients who suffer from sleep apnea. In other words, they experience breathing pauses during sleep.
Usually, a patient does not notice this disorder themselves, but their partner does. Since a person does not receive enough air for a couple of seconds, they inhale deeply with force and make a sound similar to snoring. However, it is the patient who suffers the consequences of sleep apnea, not their partner.
The Impact of Sleep Apnea on Daily Life
Normally, when a person suffers from sleep apnea, pauses of not receiving enough air can reach more than 30 times per hour. During each pause, oxygen levels in the body lower, thus depending on the frequency of the pauses, a person might spend a night with a low blood oxygen level.
One of the most important consequences of sleep apnea is the inability to rest properly. Our body requires a specific amount of time for a good night’s sleep, and every time the pause ends, we fall into a light sleep again. It is normal to feel a headache and have a dry mouth when we wake up in the morning. However, during the day we feel tired, grumpy, and even depressed. This is the main consequence felt due to the lack of sleep, which affects us over the short, medium, and long term.
Anti-snoring Mouth Guard: An Effective Solution
There are many ways to ease sleep apnea, for example, by changing your behaviour, and daily habits, or even having surgery. However, one of the most effective methods used to help you deal with the problem is an anti-snoring mouth guard. This solution requires the help of specialists, as they are the ones to adapt the correct form of the mouth guard to ensure teeth do not move, and the patient does not feel pain. They also observe any changes in biting that may occur, etc.
Personalized Mouthguards at Dental Asensio
At Dental Asensio, we prepare completely personalized mouthguards so that patients feel comfortable while using them. Typically, patients wear mouthguards only for a couple of days.
This, without any doubt, is a solution that alleviates all the consequences of sleep apnea from the first night, allowing us to feel more relaxed and improving our mood.
