Does your snoring wake you or your family up? Do you feel exhausted when you wake up in the morning?
Have you been told that you snore and that it is bothering the family? Have you been told you must wear a CPAP (air mask worn when sleeping) or you will have serious health problems? If the thought of wearing a mask that covers most of your face and that leaves the telltale strap marks is unbearable, then we have the answer!
Dr. Roger Druckman is taking this opportunity to tell you of a dental breakthrough of stopping you from snoring and/or gasping for air while you sleep by utilizing a retainer-like appliance, which keeps the airway from being blocked and remaining open. This is an easy way for you to take control of your health since it is a non-invasive procedure that is cheaper and more effective than surgery! While CPAPs only result in a 15-25% compliance rate, oral appliances have a 90-95% compliance rate, and many patients have expressed amazement that a simple appliance has transformed the quality of their sleep and helped them feel like themselves again.
The technical name for the problem of snoring and choking while sleeping is sleep apnea. It is caused by the tongue relaxing when you sleep by falling backwards and closing the airway for 10-90 seconds, which can occur 15-90 times an hour, resulting in fitful sleep that leaves you exhausted during the day. Chronic exhaustion can greatly affect your ability to perform your work and even increase your risk of being in a car accident. Additional red flags are:
- Daytime sleepiness
- High blood pressure
- Being overweight
- Erectile dysfuntion
Obviously, this is a very serious health problem!
