Information on Sleep Apnea

If a sleeping person quits breathing for 10 seconds or longer, they have what is described as “apnea.” Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is an example type of sleep apnea. Other sleep apneas include what they call mixed and central sleep apnea. Sleep apnea has three levels of severity: mild, moderate, and severe. Reduction of sufficient breath during sleep decrease airflow, prompting the brain to direct the body to wake up and breathe. Sleep apnea sufferers only move into a moderate stage of sleep, while other circumstances, patients may wake fully during sleep and sometimes not sleep at all. Get your sleep appliance today!

Causes from Lose of Sleep?

Several factors can contribute to airway blockage, from the volume of passages and oral or airway, to swelling of passageways or placement of the tongue. Interrupted deep sleep can influence mood, health, energy and create daytime drowsiness. The combined stress and fatigue may cause loss of concentration, impairment of memory, and mishaps in the workplace or during driving. Other health dangers include high blood pressure, heart issues, and even a chance of untimely death. The sleep apnea patient’s snoring can disrupt a sleeping partner’s rest, as well.

Non-Surgical Therapies

Some tests can decide if you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), and non-surgical treatments may relieve the problem. A nasal mask (CPAP) can carry air to hold nasal passages open while sleeping. Similarly effective and even more convenient and comfortable, patients may now use dental sleep appliances that reposition the tongue or mandible (lower jawbone).
