Sleep apnea is a serious health issue. But traveling and wearing those machines at night can be a pain. In some cases, sleep apnea can be caused by a collapsing of the vertical dimension of your face. In these cases, opening up your bite and restoring your teeth to their natural height can make a vast difference. Not to mention, it’ll make your teeth look great!
Symptoms you might be suffering from as a result of sleep apnea can include: loud snoring, periods where you stop breathing during sleep as witnessed by someone else, frequently waking up in the middle of the night with shortness of breath, waking with a dry or sore mouth, morning headaches, insomnia, attention problems, being overtired during the day, and more. Sleep apnea is a serious condition which, if untreated, can lead to an increase in significant medical conditions, such as diabetes and hypertension.
