The visit, as expected, was fine. It is the results that are unbelievable! For the first time in seven years I slept without waking up one time and my little wife has stopped trying to beat the hell out of me in the middle of the night. The snoring is gone! Truly unbelievable! - George E., Tuscaloosa

Treatment for Sleep Apnea in Tuscaloosa with Advanced Dentistry

Z-z-z-z! Everyone recognizes this as the symbol for snoring, but if you share a bed with someone who snores, you know that it just doesn’t give the full effect – especially if the snoring results from sleep apnea! And sleep apnea is serious business.

How do I Know if My Snoring is Really Sleep Apnea?

Excessive snoring may indicate obstructive sleep apnea, a condition caused by an obstruction near the base of the tongue.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, your snoring could actually be harming your health. Do any of these symptoms sound familiar?

  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Morning headache
  • Irritability
  • Impaired memory and judgment
  • Mood disturbance

What Makes Sleep Apnea so Dangerous?

Sleep apnea can cause a person to stop breathing – sometimes hundreds of times in just one night. Think about holding your breath for an entire minute. Now consider that you may be doing this over and over, all night long.

Your body and your brain are being deprived of life-giving oxygen over and over again. The hours your body should be rebuilding itself are spent in a constant struggle for breath!
