Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a chronic medical condition where the affected person repeatedly stops breathing during sleep. These episodes last 10 seconds or more and cause oxygen levels in the blood to drop. The episodes can be caused by obstruction of the upper airway, or by a failure of the brain to initiate a breath. Sleep apnea can cause and worsen other medical conditions, including hypertension, heart failure, and diabetes.

The most common symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea are:

Loud snoring
Restless sleep
Stoppages of breathing
Irritability or personality change
Significant daytime sleepiness
Difficulty concentrating and poor memory

Our dentists can assist you in finding a solution to your sleep concerns.
