Trouble sleeping at night? 3 signs you may have sleep apnea

SAN ANTONIO

Did you know that sleep apnea can lead to serious health problems, including heart disorders and depression? Sleep apnea is a condition that 80 percent of Americans suffer from. 

 

Premier Sleep Solutions is a dental practice dedicated to treating sleep disorders, including sleep apnea.

 

To reduce your sleep apnea, Premier Sleep Solutions offers oral appliance therapy.

 

The therapy includes the use of an appliance which is placed in the mouth and is worn much like an orthodontic appliance or sports mouth protector.

 

This is used as an alternative to the CPAP face machine. 

 

"My patients have a 95% success rate. They are so happy." 

Premier Sleep Solutions, Sleep Technician, Veronica Morillos said. 

 

According to Premier Sleep Solutions, the three signs you may have sleep apnea can include: snoring, difficulty breathing at night, and fatigue in the morning.

 

What is sleep apnea according to Premier Sleep Solutions?

 

Sleep apnea is a medical condition in which a person has one or more pauses in breathing, or shallow breaths while he or she sleeps.  These pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes, and may occur 30 times or more in a minute. People with sleep apnea often snore.

 

How can Premier Sleep Solutions help?

 

Premier Sleep Solutions will provide you with a sleep study. According to Premier Sleep Solutions, most medical insurance providers and Medicare cover sleep-related treatments, so a patient’s out-of-pocket costs are minimal or even non-existent.
