sleep apnea & snore guards
Our experienced Mississauga dentists offer sleep apnea solutions at Derry Village Dental. Millions of people suffer from sleep apnea, many of whom aren’t even aware they have the disease. If left untreated, the condition can be detrimental to your health, which is why identifying the problem is so important.
Sleep apnea is typically characterized by snoring and breathing pauses while asleep. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common form of the condition and occurs when the airway is blocked, preventing you from breathing properly and, consequently, getting an adequate amount of sleep. As a result, you may find that you constantly experience fatigue, headaches, high blood pressure, and more. These symptoms signal the need for treatment before life-threatening health problems arise.

A number of health-related problems can occur if sleep apnea is left untreated. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:
- Heart disease
- Memory loss
- High blood pressure
- Sudden cardiac death
