#1) You Might Have Sleep Apnea and Not Know It
Sleep apnea doesn’t discriminate on age, gender, race or lifestyle — even children and infants can be diagnosed with sleep apnea. In fact, up to 9% of women and 24% of men have some form of sleep apnea, yet less than 25% of sufferers have been diagnosed.
Sleep apnea occurs when muscles in the tongue and throat relax, and close the airway during sleep, preventing oxygen from reaching the brain. When the brain signals the muscles to open, the sufferer usually wakes with a gasp or snort to resume breathing.
This cycle can repeat dozens of times per night and prevent the sufferer from a good night’s sleep. Sleep apnea is difficult to detect, especially if you sleep alone.
Symptoms of sleep apnea are often misdiagnosed or attributed to other causes. If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms and believe you may have sleep apnea, get in touch with our experts:
- Difficulty concentrating
- Sore throat
- Dry mouth
- Weight gain
#2) Improve Quality of Life & Relationships
Imagine waking up with more energy and enthusiasm, so you can enjoy your life and your loved ones.
Untreated sleep apnea leaves sufferers exhausted and moody, night after night with very little relief. It can disturb relationships, impair work performance, inhibit intimacy and even cause depression.
Healthy relationships are so important to a happy, fulfilling life; the Simple Sleep Custom Mouthpiece will give you back the energy you need to engage and enjoy your relationships.
#3) Cost Savings On Your Treatment Services
If your OSA is misdiagnosed or undiagnosed, you may be spending money on tests and medications for conditions you don’t even have. For example, if you are prescribed sleeping pills for insomnia, but your insomnia is caused by OSA, the sleeping pills may worsen your condition.
Good sleep is a pillar of our philosophy and vital to a long, healthy life. Risks associated with OSA include diabetes, hypertension, stroke, heart attacks, etc., all of which are costly, not to mention debilitating conditions.
The Simple Sleep Custom Mouthpiece is part of a sleep apnea treatment service covered by all private insurance companies. We can even help you find out if you’re covered!

#4) Enjoy More Energy & Focus
Restful sleep will give you more energy and focus to tackle your day and enjoy your life. Work performance is greatly improved by good sleep, so you can excel in your career and provide for your family.
With more focus, you’ll be less prone to car or work-related accidents, which are extremely common among undiagnosed OSA sufferers. In fact, driving while sleepy poses the same risk to drivers as driving under the influence of alcohol.
Why take on the risk when there is a Simple Sleep Solution?
#5) Undiagnosed OSA Can Shorten Your Life
OSA is linked to a variety of life-threatening medical conditions, including:
Brain Damage: Sleep apnea repeatedly starves the brain of oxygen. The continuous lack of oxygen damages brain tissue and interferes with blood flow, causing spikes in blood pressure that damage the smaller arteries and capillaries within the brain. Researchers believe untreated OSA plays a role in a variety of impaired cognition conditions, including dementia and other forms of memory loss.
Cardiovascular Diseases: OSA may increase the rate of cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension (high blood pressure), heart failure, stroke, heart arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat), myocardial ischemia (decreased blood flow to the heart) and pulmonary arterial hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs).
Diabetes: OSA has been found to increase insulin resistance, a precursor to diabetes. Diabetes is very common among OSA sufferers, although both conditions have a strong correlation to obesity.
Asthma: People with asthma have a higher risk of OSA, which can worsen both conditions and be potentially deadly.
All of these conditions have a strong likelihood of shortening your life and severely decreasing your quality of life.
