…and Hampton cosmetic dentistry could be the key!
A good, restful night’s sleep is necessary to keep your body functioning the way it should. This period of relaxation is used to restore and revitalize all your systems. So, when your sleep is interrupted by your own snoring, snorting or gurgling, (or that of your partner,) you’re not getting the relaxation and refreshment that your body needs … and it could be the sign of a serious, life-threatening condition called sleep apnea.
During sleep, your body relaxes. As all your muscles and tissues loosen up, your airway can actually collapse on itself causing the vibration which results in snoring. Sleep apnea can also cause a lack of oxygen flow – or suffocation – depriving every cell in your body of priceless critical oxygen.
Your brain is then signalled to wake up to catch your breath. This reoccurring problem is called sleep apnea. You will not be conscious of these events. If you are fortunate, someone close to you may notice that you stop breathing and bring it to your attention. Professional help can then be sought right here in Hampton. If left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, dementia, heart attack, and general body deterioration preventing your body from functioning the way it should. It can also lead to sudden death during sleep.
