Posts Under Sleep Apnea

Evidence has shown that treating sleep apnea can reduce the risk of a stroke or heart attack. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is the most common form of sleep apnea. Snoring can be one of the warning signs of sleep apnea. It occurs when the air way is blocked and causes the throat tissue to vibrate. This condition decreases the concentration of oxygen level in the blood stream and increases the blood pressure which both can increase the risk of a stroke or heart disease.
Some of the other symptoms of sleep apnea are:
  • Weight gain
  • Tiredness and fatigue during the day
  • Waking up frequently during the night
If you are concerned about sleep apnea or any sleep disorder, the first thing to do is to consult with medical doctor. After having sleep test, and sleep apnea diagnosis, then your dentist can help you fabricate a customized oral appliance that will open your airway, and you can breathe better and have a good night’s sleep.
 

Sleep Apnea is a sleep disorder that occurs when the airway is blocked and causes the throat tissue to vibrate. Sleep disorders cause several major health threatening problems and can also speed memory loss. The University of Michigan Health System studies on 147 children ages 3 to 12 who were suspected of having sleep apnea. The result shows children with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) have a lower level IQ and some of them have behavior issues such as inattention, hyperactivity, social problems, and perfectionism. According to this study, by treating sleep apnea they can approach the higher level of IQ. Also, proper sleeping will lead to behavioral improvements in future.

The snoring sound is made when air passes through the airway and causes the throat tissue to vibrate. This is the primary warning sign for a serious and chronic #health problem, which is called sleep apnea. If you suspect you may have sleep apnea, the first thing to do is see your doctor. Your dentist can then help to provide you with a customized oral appliance that will open your airway so you can breathe and get a good night’s sleep!
