It’s the Most Exhausting Time of the Year

No matter how much you might love the holiday season, there’s no denying this time of the year can run you ragged. Between shopping, traveling, dealing with family and possibly planning get-togethers with those closest to you, you can easily find yourself feeling completely wiped out by lunchtime. It’s essential you rest well during this time of the year, but having sleep apnea can make that all but impossible.

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that can be caused by excessive weight or obesity, enlarged tonsils or a large overbite. It’s possible sleep apnea can be triggered by a growth in the airway or a birth defect. Not sure if any of these apply to you? Some sleep apnea symptoms include:

  • Excessive feelings of fatigue
  • Loud snoring

  • Feeling tired in the daytime
  • Gasping for air while sleeping

There’s no need to go through life with your sleep apnea untreated; let a qualified dentist like Dr. Cieplak improve your overall quality of life.
