Start getting a healthy, restful night’s sleep with the help of our dentists.
Do you wake up feeling tired, as if you didn’t sleep all night? Do you have constant exhaustion during the day? If so, you may have sleep apnea. This is a sleep disorder that completely compromises how deeply you rest each night as well as how much sleep you get.
Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder characterized by intermittent pauses and interruptions in breathing. Obstructive sleep apnea is a little different in that it is caused by obstructions in the airway. These obstructions can result from many things, such as collapsed tissues in the airway or the tongue rolling back in the throat. If left untreated, sleep apnea has been proven to lead to numerous health issues, such as heart disease, high blood pressure and more.
Sleep apnea must be diagnosed by a sleep physician, so we recommend talking to our dentists and your sleep physician if you’re suffering from the symptoms of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea treatment in Herndon, Virginia, depends on the severity of the condition and the preferences of the patient.
