Do people often complain about your snoring? Has anyone ever told you that you stop breathing when you are asleep?
Those symptoms are both big clues that you may have sleep apnea . When left untreated, this sleep disorder can increase your risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, cardiovascular disease, and strokes.
Fortunately, Biggers Family Dentistry can help you get sleep apnea treatment at our office in Midlothian, VA. Dr. Hood Biggers can design a custom-fitted oral appliance that can help you breathe easier and snore less.

▸ Morning headaches
▸ Waking up with a dry mouth or a sore throat
▸ Frequent daytime sleepiness
If you are noticing multiple symptoms, we encourage you to set up a consultation with Dr. Biggers soon. Call (804) 621-2199 or contact us online . It could be your first step to getting deep, healthy sleep.
