Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea is a condition where you have interruptions in your breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. It can have a negative effect on your day-to-day activities, such as difficulty performing work duties, as well as serious effects on your health, including increasing your risk of high blood pressure. At Springs Village Dentistry, we provide treatment to get you back to great health and more restful nights.Contact Us
Signs and Symptoms
Many people don’t realize they have sleep apnea since the condition occurs while you sleep! We’ve compiled a list of the most common signs and symptoms:
- Loud or frequent snoring
- Pauses in your breathing
- Waking up with shortness of breath
- Drowsiness, tiredness, or inability to focus during the day
- Moodiness or irritability during the day
- Waking up with a headache
- Waking up with a dry mouth or sore throat
If you exhibit one or more of the above, we recommend that you schedule an appointment at Springs Village Dentistry.
Sleep Apnea Diagnosis & Treatment
There are two main types of sleep apnea: obstructive and central. Obstructive is where your airway becomes blocked, while central is where your brain stops sending signs to breathe.
When you visit our practice, we can help you determine which, if any, you are dealing with. Depending on the severity of your case, we’ll provide recommendations for treatment, which could include using an oral appliance, a CPAP machine, or another option.Make an Appointment
