Are you sick and tired of always being tired? A good night’s sleep is so important for every aspect of your health, and you might not even be aware that you’re not getting one. All you know is that drag feeling that comes once your morning cups of coffee wear off, and you make your mid-day trudge to the break room for more caffeine.
The fact is you don’t have to go through the day feeling like a zombie. You have enough to deal with already – getting the kids to soccer practice and ballet, making sure everyone eats their dinner, and endlessly trying to make the house look like less of a disaster zone – so you shouldn’t have to battle chronic fatigue on top of all that.
A lot of people attribute their lack of sleep and energy to always being busy. The truth is that there may be a different explanation – and it’s one you need to take action on!
That explanation is sleep apnea, and here at Exceptional Dentistry in Palmdale, California we have the tools and experience to help you be rid of the fatigue that comes with it.
What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea occurs when your airway becomes obstructed while sleeping (sound dangerous? That’s because it is.) Sleep apnea causes you to wake up continuously throughout the night (most of the time without your knowledge), and also causes snoring. So if you’re married, both you and your partner won’t be getting much sleep.
How is it fixed?
Sleep apnea may seem like a pretty big deal – and it can be depending on the severity – but the good news is that there’s a fix readily available. With it, you can get back to that great sleep you need in order to rock at your job, your parenting, and everything else you have going on in your busy life.
The solution most often recommended by Dr. James D. Powell is a mandibular advancement device (MAD) or The DNA Appliance. They are both really simple mouth pieces which gently move your lower jaw forward while you sleep. This opens your airway and instantly helps you get the sleep (and air) you need.
