The feeling of sleep deprivation and suffering from restless nights is serious in how it affects your body. If you are also facing regular snoring, and lack of being able to breathe efficiently, you could be dealing with the signs and symptoms of sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea is a disorder that disrupts your breathing in the night, causing you to constantly wake yourself. The lack of breathing typically begins heavy snoring, which is not ideal night after night for your health. If you find yourself feeling tired even after sleeping fully through the night, seek dental treatment for sleep apnea.
When you go to the dentist, you may be put through a sleep test. During this sleep test, you will be attached to monitors that will track your breathing, and lack thereof. This will allow your doctor effectively manage your sleep apnea, if that is the disorder you are facing.

If you are suffering from sleep apnea, then you may be having a hard time getting a goodnights sleep. If you have tried to get to bed earlier, exercise before bed, or other suggested tactics but still find you are waking up not feeling fully rested it’s very possible that you may be suffering from sleep apnea.
On occasion, your dentist will provide you or recommend a mouth guard for you to wear, nightly. Night guards can be needed for a number of reasons, but they are used to protect your teeth through the night. Night guards typically do not have to be worn during the day, unless you’re an athlete, because we are more conscious of how we are holding our mouths. Here are a few reasons your doctor may recommend you wear a night guard.
