Do You Wake Suddenly At Night?

Do You Wake Suddenly At Night?

san antonio sleep apnea treatment

Do you ever wake up suddenly gasping or struggling to breathe? If so, this could be just one indication that you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea. Without treatment, your sleep could worsen, and this could strain both your immune system and your heart health! Your Schertz, TX, sleep experts explain what can be done to help you rest with ease again, which could include a simple and comfortable CPAP-alternative known as an oral appliance.

Snoring, Sudden Waking, and Other Warning Signs

With sleep apnea, as you rest soft tissues in the back of your mouth and in your throat become too relaxed and then collapse. This collapse cuts off airflow and you stop breathing briefly until the brain registers this drop in oxygen and wakes you to resume. Symptoms could include snoring, as well as suddenly waking up gasping for air or choking. If this happens, you should see us. Even if you only recall this happening once or twice, it could be interrupting your sleep cycle hundreds of times in one night. This can lead to issues with concentration, memory, irritability, and even stress on your immune system and heart health!

Starting Treatment

First, we will offer a quiz to help assess your sleep habits and possible risk factors and symptoms. We also conduct a detailed examination to see if you need treatment for sleep apnea. We want to assess the underlying factors and severity of the issue, so we can choose the best treatment option. In addition, we can talk about positive sleep habits, like maintaining a good sleep schedule, avoiding alcohol or caffeine right before bed, limiting screen time in the two hours before sleep, and keeping your bedroom dark and cool. Resting on your side instead of your back can be helpful too.

Custom Oral Appliances

For many, we offer a CPAP-alternative known as an oral appliance. This device is custom-fitted for your smile to ensure a proper fit and a treatment with precision, shifting your jaw and tongue to prevent the collapse of soft tissues. The device looks and fits like a mouthguard, and is worn while you rest. The device itself is easy to use and clean, and can travel with you as needed too. The device that can help you sleep easily and avoid further complications with your overall health and quality of life. Don’t live with poor rest, talk to our team about possible treatment options. You deserve a good night’s rest, and we want to help!
