Learn About Sleep Apnea
Imagine a night of deep, uninterrupted sleep. Sound like a dream? If you frequently wake up exhausted even after what you thought was a full eight hours of shut-eye, if your partner complains of your chronic snoring, or if you find it difficult to complete everyday tasks through the fog of your fatigue, we have news for you. It may be time to seek an evaluation for sleep apnea in Cleveland.
Some 18 million Americans are suffering from the sleep breathing disorder. It occurs when the lower jaw and tongue become so relaxed during sleep that they collapse into the airway -- and loud, disruptive snoring occurs as a result. Unable to receive the oxygen it needs to function properly, your brain sends an emergency signal to wake the body up. But you may not remember a night of fitful sleep the next morning. Instead, you just feel tired.
Seem all-too-familiar? Don’t wait to seek a diagnosis and treatment for your obstructive sleep apnea. Dr. Hornstein can help clear your airway during sleep with a small removable oral appliance -- an effective alternative to the loud, noisy CPAP therapy many patients just can’t tolerate.
