Snoring & Sleep Apnea Treatment in Nogales

Let Our Nogales Dentists Help with Your Sleeping Problems

Is your bed-partner or roommates always complaining because of your loud snoring? While snoring is seen as just one of those amusing social problems, it may actually be a symptom of a bigger problem that needs to be taken more seriously, which is sleep apnea. When a person has sleep apnea, they have a tendency to stop breathing for a few seconds to a minute or more. Both simple snoring and sleep apnea can be worsened by a large tongue or tonsils, obesity, aging as well as the shape of the head, jaw, and neck.

Since snoring and sleep apnea are associated with the mouth and jaw, dental professionals are often involved during the treatment process of these sleeping problems. At Dental Laser Nogales, we are experienced in treating patients with snoring problems as well as mild to moderate sleep apnea. As a premier dental practice, our team has always been at the forefront of the evolving dental technologies, studies, and procedures, which include our role in snoring and sleep apnea treatment. Let our Nogales dentists help you with these sleeping problems and experience a more peaceful and relaxed sleep not only for you but for your bed-partner and roommates as well.

Health Risks of Sleep Apnea

According to the American Sleep Apnea Association, almost 90 million Americans snore during their sleep. While half of these people are considered simple snorers, the other half is facing the more serious sleep apnea. If you’re a heavy snorer, we recommend that you seek medical attention to determine if you have sleep apnea or not.

If left untreated, sleep apnea may increase your risk of the following:

  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Diabetes
  • Heart attack
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Sudden death
