You frequently wake up feeling nearly as tired as you did when you went to bed. You often find yourself fighting daytime sleepiness. You also get irritated or annoyed easily.

These all may be signs that you have sleep apnea, which is a serious sleep disorder. Our Novi, MI dental team can help. Here are three reasons of the many why you should get sleep apnea treatment soon.

1. Your Snoring Is Annoying

Loud and persistant snoring may be the most common symptom of this sleep disorder. You have probably heard the complaints. You also may have had to deal with cranky family members and friends when your snoring has kept them from getting a good night’s sleep.

2. You Want to Be Healthier

When you have sleep apnea, you rarely get deep sleep. You stop breathing when you fall asleep, so your body will wake you up. You may not remember it, but this can happen hundreds of times every night. That puts stress on your body which raises your risk of high blood pressure, heart attacks, cardiovascular disease, and strokes.

3. You Don’t Want to Get in Car Accident

Recent studies have found that people who are suffering from sleep apnea are 2.5 times more likely to be in an accident than other drivers. This is considered to be a result of sleep deprivation (due to a lack of deep sleep), which also explains daytime sleepiness and fatigue.

For your sake and the sake of your loved ones, don’t wait to do something about your condition. Call Dr. James C. Ross today at 248-697-2487 or contact us online to schedule an appointment in Novi, MI.
