If loud snoring and waking up throughout the night are interfering with your quality of sleep, you could have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a dangerous medical condition where breathing actually stops during sleep. This can happen hundreds of times throughout the night, without the patient even knowing. It’s important to get treatment for sleep apnea as it can lead to medical issues like high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, and stroke. Dr. Femi Oguntolu can perform specialized tests to measure the airways and determine whether you have sleep apnea. If diagnosed, he can fit you with a SomnoDent oral appliance which helps open up the airways while sleeping so you can breathe easy.
