Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta
Sleep apnea is not dependent on the weather, but certain conditions can exacerbate some of its symptoms. During the colder and dryer months of winter, men and women who struggle with sleep apnea in Calgary and surrounding areas of Alberta may experience an increase in sleep apnea symptoms such as:
- Loud snoring
- Breath cessation while sleeping
- Frequent morning headaches
- Waking without feeling rested
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please call Calgary dentist Dr. Steven Cload at (403) 278-1415 to schedule an evaluation and treatment consultation right away.
The Dangers of Untreated Sleep Apnea
Unlike allergies, sleep apnea is not seasonal, although it may become more intense when the air outside is colder. As symptoms increase, so too does awareness of this dangerous condition, making wintertime an ideal time to seek lasting and noninvasive treatment options to avoid serious complications.
Serious complications linked to sleep apnea include:
- Heart attack and stroke
- Memory loss
- Severe mood swings
- Excessive daytime fatigue
The long-term impacts of sleep apnea range from slight inconveniences to fatal diseases, all of which are unnecessary due to the incredibly simple ways in which this common sleeping disorder can be treated.
Calgary dentist Dr. Steven Cload offers oral appliances for the treatment of sleep apnea that offer a comfortable and safe alternative to CPAP machines. If you have long struggled with sleep apnea or if your current treatment is causing more problems than it solves, Dr. Cload welcomes an opportunity to meet with you and assess your condition, and to help you determine if one of our sleep apnea treatment options may better meet your needs.
