Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Nearly half of adults suffer from excessive snoring. Sleep apnea is a potentially serious disorder that may indicate serious breathing complications that could have serious implications on your health. 
 
What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a condition that affects about 22 million people in the US. This is when breathing pauses for more than 10 seconds while sleeping, which forces the heart to work harder than it should have to. Sleep apnea can seriously damage your heart and have long-lasting effects on your overall physical health.
 
Symptoms of sleep apnea:
 
Excessive snoring
Long pauses in breathing while sleeping
Gasping or choking
Dry mouth or sore throat
Daytime fatigue
Frequent urination
Waking up with a headache
Irritability and mood changes
High blood pressure, heart disease, stroke
 
There are several ways to help treat sleep apnea and snoring available through your dentist. The most common treatment of sleep apnea is a CPAP which is a device worn while sleeping that helps open the airways. CPAP stands for continuous positive airway pressure. Ask your dentist about treatment options available for you to help treat sleep apnea.
