Get Sleep Apnea Treatment in South Carolina
Do you ever catch yourself snoring loudly when you sleep or wake up out of breath in the middle of the night? You could have sleep apnea, which can be more serious than just waking up the person in the next room while you’re asleep. Sleep apnea can lead to depression, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, or many other ailments. My Affordable Braces offers services to help people at all our locations, like in Myrtle Beach, SC, suffering from sleep apnea. You can get treatment like a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) mask or another oral appliance machine so that you can sleep safely through the night and wake up feeling refreshed.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is the involuntary cessation of your breathing while asleep. There are three types: obstructive, central, and mixed, with obstructive being the most common. You usually don’t know that you’ve stopped breathing since it doesn’t fully wake you up. Symptoms of it can be very loud snoring, obesity, sleepiness in the daytime, waking up at night out of breath, and having dry mouth or headaches when you wake up in the morning. None of these symptoms actually has to be present for you to have sleep apnea. The only sure way to confirm it is going to a sleep laboratory and performing a sleep study, or by doing a home sleep study. Sleep apnea is incredibly common, and since each bout of breathing cessation causes you to awaken partially to continue breathing, you end up with poor-quality sleep.
