What Is Sleep Apnea?

Snoring is often associated with a sleep disorder called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Not all snorers have OSA, but if snoring is accompanied by any of the following symptoms, it may be an indication to see a doctor for further evaluation for OSA: Witnessed breathing pauses during sleep.

Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. If you snore loudly and feel tired even after a full night’s sleep, you might have sleep apnea. The main types of sleep apnea are: Obstructive sleep apnea, the more common form that occurs when throat muscles relax.

Sleep Apnea Conditions


Sleep apnea is most common in men over the age of 40 but is known to affect patients of various backgrounds. Physical conditions such as enlarged tonsils, sinus problems or a deviated septum may attribute to this problem. When left untreated it becomes easier to develop high blood pressure, increased risks of stroke or heart attach, heart failures and more.  If you or your partner are experiencing sleeplessness from snoring orthodontic help from the dentist may be the answer to reclaiming a good night’s rest.

      A Better Night’s Sleep Is Possible


      Life’s no fun when you sleep in the same house as a jet engine or train! If your loved one snores, or sleep apnea is keeping you awake at night, our services can help return you to a good night’s sleep. One ideal form of treatment involves using a continuous positive air pressure (CPAP) device to help keep your airways open while you sleep by supplying air through the nasal passages. By alleviating the problems you feel when you can’t sleep well due to sleep apnea or snoring, you will sleep better and feel more refreshed in the mornings.
