This time of year, it’s easy to be a little spooked by things that go bump in the night.

But if you live with a sleep apnea sufferer, maybe soft, distant noises around the house in the middle of the night don’t faze you at all because all you can hear is loud, chronic snoring.

Obstructive sleep apnea is more than just a nuisance. It’s actually a serious threat to your health and quality of life. Check out today’s video, courtesy of the Mayo Clinic, that explains what this disorder is and how it can affect your health.

While you’ll hear about one of the most common treatments for sleep apnea, the CPAP machine, we encourage to visit us, and explore alternatives if you want a quieter, more comfortable, convenient solution from your experienced Highland dentist! We’ve helped countless patients get the deep rest they need without the hassles of a CPAP machine by creating custom oral appliances that help people breathe easily all night long.
