Finally Stop Snoring
& Achieve Healthy Sleep
Do you struggle with feeling drowsy during the day even if you’ve had a full night’s rest? Do you snore so loudly that your partner is just as sleep deprived? Have you almost had one or more car accidents because you’re tired? If you answered yes, you may have a condition that affects about 25 million Americans—sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea consistently keeps someone from getting the restful sleep they need. As a result, they can have difficulty focusing, remembering, or controlling their emotions. Not only can this sleep deprivation negatively impact their quality of life, but also endanger their health and well-being.
Luckily for the people of Mesa, relief is close to home through sleep apnea and snoring therapy. At Ocotillo Sleep Solutions, Dr. Paul Jones offers solutions proven to help sleep apnea patients get their life back with custom-made appliances. Whether you already know you have this condition or only think you do, you can trust our team’s expertise to give you better nights and better days.
The Dangerous Effects of Sleep Loss
Occasional sleep deprivation usually isn’t a big deal, but if getting quality sleep is a struggle night after night for long periods of time, your mental and physical health can suffer. The brain and the rest of the body require deep sleep in order to recuperate from everyday stresses and rejuvenate for a new day. Without adequate rest, you’re headed for trouble from top to bottom.
When you’re sleep deprived from sleep apnea, you’re far more likely to experience cognitive problems, such as decreased focus, unclear memory, and mood swings or depression. Not only do these issues translate to internal challenges, but they can easily strain relationships as well. After all, when you’re constantly tired, it can be difficult to be a good spouse, parent, or employee!
The physical consequences of sleep deprivation are even more serious. Without good sleep, the balance of leptin and ghrelin hormones is thrown off. These hormones signal when you’re hungry and full. As a result, sleep-deprived individuals are more likely to gain significant weight, which is a leading cause of sleep apnea!
Additionally, multiple studies have found that sleep deprivation doubles the odds of a car accident compared to intoxication! According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, every year drowsy driving accounts for about 72,000 wrecks and 800 deaths.
Why Being a Qualified Member Matters?
The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine is an organization that focuses on treating snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) through the use of oral appliances rather than CPAP therapy. As an active, qualified member, Dr. Paul Jones receives advanced training in many facets of oral appliance therapy for sleep-disordered breathing and has committed to maintaining high standards of care. His membership makes him an expert in this field and an equal collaborator with your sleep physician.
The Benefits of Sleep Apnea Treatment
Can you remember the last time you slept the whole night and woke up feeling rested? When you have untreated sleep apnea, you simply won’t get enough quality sleep, but the right treatment with Dr. Jones can change that. You can look forward to deep rest night after night.
Eliminate Brain Fog
In order to function properly, your brain needs to rest just as much as your body. Frequent interruptions during the night can make your brain struggle with memory and focus during the day. By treating sleep apnea, you can help your brain follow natural, healthy processes that make daily functions much easier. After oral appliance therapy, you’ll likely find that you’re better able to recall information or to accomplish goals.
You need energy to function on a daily basis, but this is especially the case if you want to accomplish your goals! Want to go for that big promotion? Get fit? Finish an important project? Sleep apnea can leave you mentally and physically drained, but the right therapy can allow you to refill and prepare for the next day.
When you’re tired, you can feel grumpy and forgetful, which makes you less than pleasant to be around. Plus, if your sleep-apnea-related snoring has kept your partner up as well, they too could be struggling with sleep deprivation. It’s a recipe for disaster in any relationship! Sleep apnea therapy enable you to be more like yourself, more patient and compassionate with the people who matter most to you.
