Research shows that 35.7% of people worldwide have trouble sleeping. So is using sleeping pills the right solution to sleep problems? What is snoring prosthesis? When do you need it?
Sleep quality is more important than ever during the epidemic. Because healthy sleep is one of the main supporters of the immune system. According to a report published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine, 35.7% of people worldwide have trouble sleeping, while nightmares and snoring are the most common sleep problems. So how accurate is it to take sleeping pills for insomnia?
“Nightmares, which are among the sleep problems of psychological origin, are an important problem experienced by many individuals who are mentally worn out, especially during the epidemic process. Snoring can be a harbinger of different diseases. At this point, it is important to remember that the use of sleeping pills is a wrong method aimed at saving the day and has the potential to destroy sleep patterns alto in the long term.”
Sleep quality and sleep duration are not the same thing
Contrary to the misconception in society, doctors noted that it is not necessary to stay asleep for long hours for a healthy sleep, and also cited factors that affect sleep quality:
- Quality sleep also contributes to quality of life by supporting mental and physical health. If the person is not able to make himself feel rested and full of energy the next day, it is necessary to doubt the quality of sleep.
- Many habits such as irregular sleep schedule, sound, temperature, light in the sleeping environment, caffeine and alcohol consumption negatively affect sleep quality. This increases risks such as stroke, heart disease and high blood pressure, while also having psychological consequences such as irritability, anxiety or depression caused by insomnia.
- Snoring is critical because it gives important messages about the quality of one’s sleep. Although some snoring is normal, excessive snoring can be a precursor to problems with the shape of the nose, throat and jaw, or diseases such as sleep apnea.
Painless method in the treatment of snoring: Snoring Prosthesis
The most effective method used for snoring treatment today is snoring prostheses, the experts said.
“Snoring prosthesis is used only during treatment and during sleep. Just like the boxer’s gums, he attaches to the top of the teeth, positioning the lower jaw in front, opening the airway, which is clogged with the sagging of the tongue and palate, preventing snoring and sleep apnea. The success rate is 90-95% in patients using snoring prosthesis.
Since it positions the lower jaw in an advanced position during sleep, it prevents snoring and sleep apnea even in patients with small lower jaws and back. Since snoring prosthesis is made in special suitability, it can also be used in case of other dental prostheses and toothlessness. Thus, painless, painless treatment is also possible without the need for surgical intervention.”
