Does snoring affect you or your partner? Dr. Tiffany Shields might be able to help. While snoring may be considered by some people to be a simple annoyance, it can also lead to serious health conditions.
Snoring may increase risk of high blood pressure, stoke, cardiovascular disorders, heart failure, daytime fatigue, dementia, memory problems, diabetes, obesity, and depression. Ask your dentist about an affordable, comfortable, and effective preventative device to avoid further snoring and the possible risks that go along with it.
Sleep apnea is also an issue that many adults find themselves facing during sleep. This means they’re experiencing abnormal pauses in breathing or low breathing while they sleep. These pauses can last from a few seconds to as long as minutes. A sleep study is used to diagnose sleep apnea. This is a dangerous condition and should be taken seriously.
Dr. Tiffany Shields will be glad to help you improve your overall health and quality of life by assisting in treatment for your snoring and sleep apnea. Call your Jacksonville dentist today to make an appointment for a step towards a healthier you!
