Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder.
When you have this condition, you stop breathing, sometimes for a few seconds, sometimes for a minute or more. And these pauses can happen dozens or even hundreds of times every night depending on how severe your condition is.
Let that sink in for a moment.
Sleep apnea raises your risk of heart and cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and car accidents. It also results in loud, persistent snoring, which may be preventing people you care about from sleeping well, too.
Our dentist in Novi, MI, could help. We offer a sleep apnea treatment here at Dr. James Ross, Family, Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry that many patients prefer to CPAP therapy.
