  • Snoring
  • Restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Memory loss
  • Headaches
  • Jaw pain

  • Lethargy

If you’ve experienced these symptoms, call your trusted dentist in Clemson, SC right away. Help could be closer than you think.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a common but extremely dangerous medical condition that affects you while you sleep. As you try to sleep, your tongue or soft tissue collapses into your throat. Your airways become blocked and you stop breathing for a few seconds. This can occur several times during the night.  The constant interruption of your normal breathing makes restful sleep very difficult.

Sleep apnea also affects other areas of your health. It can contribute or increase the risk of the following:

  • Hypertension
  • Strokes
  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Weight Gain
  • Insomnia
  • Depression

To prevent these issues and keep you safe and healthy, contact your trusted dentist in Clemson, SC if you are having any trouble sleeping or experiencing noticeable snoring.

How Does a Snore Guard Help My Sleep Apnea?

 A snore guard is an oral appliance that is worn on the upper and lower teeth while you sleep. Similar to a retainer, the snore guard fits comfortably in your mouth. When used properly, your snore guard will keep your jaw in the correct alignment, so your soft tissue and tongue won’t block up airways.

The team at Carolina Oaks Dental Care works with you to design the snore guard treatment you need. We’ll make sure your snore guard is comfortable and provides the correction you need.
