Exploring Sleep Apnea Solutions With Your Dentist
A problem you thought was “just” an issue with snoring can actually point to something more worrying. Sleep apnea disrupts your rest cycle from 5-30 times per night. That interference can hurt your health in many ways. In addition to struggling with fatigue on a daily basis, sleep disruption can cause issues with mood and short-term memory, difficulties with controlling blood pressure, and even interfere with managing other physical and mental health conditions!
Letting problems with sleep apnea continue can mean experiencing a lower quality of life and facing higher risks for hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. Your Westchase Esthetic Family Dentistry team is prepared to help. After arranging the appropriate test to confirm that this problem is the source of your health and energy level concerns, we can proceed with treatment that relies on a CPAP machine to correct breathing difficulties. We can also look at the way an oral appliance can correct problems with interference from soft tissues in the throat that interfere with air flow. We can also provide guidance on lifestyle changes effective at reducing issues with nightly breathing struggles.
