If you have problems with snoring or suffer from sleep apnoea, then Aim Dental Group offers effective treatment solutions for both these conditions. Research shows that if you snore, you’re more likely to be at risk of sleep apnoea, where air is blocked from the lungs during sleep due to the collapse of the soft tissues onto the back of the throat. Linked to other health problems, including increased blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and diabetes, sleep apnoea is a serious and potentially life-threatening condition.
As well as increasing your risk of developing future conditions, sleep apnoea also prevents the sufferer from getting a good night’s sleep, as obstructions to the throat can occur several times an hour. Each time, the sleeper partially awakes to clear it, so they may never enter deep sleep.
