Sleep Apnea and Heart Disease

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

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.

NOTICE OF TEMPORARY CLOSURE

Announcement from Fresno Smile Makeovers:

In light of the evolving pandemic and out of an abundance of caution, our office will be closed until Monday, April 13. We believe that this closure will allow us to more effectively evaluate this dynamic situation and assist in following the CDC’s guidance on social separation. If you have an appointment with us during this time, our office will be in touch to help reschedule your appointment.

 

As always, we will be available for emergency care if it were to arise during this time. There will be a dentist on call in the event of a dental emergency. Should you require this emergency care, please call our office as you normally would by phone or text as messages will be checked at 8:00 AM each day that our office is closed. If you are experiencing a life-threatening medical emergency or you can not wait until the next business day, please refer to your nearest emergency room, or urgent care facility.

 

A dental emergency includes: teeth that have been knocked out (evulsed), forced out of position (extruded), or broken (fractured), injuries to soft tissue of mouth, swelling, or infection.

 

We did not make this decision lightly. A great deal of care, research and planning guided our decision. We will continue to evaluate the situation as it evolves and determine on a weekly basis when it is appropriate for us to return to our normal business hours. Again, please understand that we are making this decision with the health and well-being of our patients, our families, our team and our community in mind.
