Sleep apnea is considered a dangerous sleeping disorder. When the throat muscles collapse while sleeping, it blocks oxygen from getting to the brain, which stops your breathing repeatedly throughout the night.
In turn, your sleep is disrupted and will leave you feeling tired and restless. If left untreated, sleep apnea can be detrimental to your overall health and increase your chances of serious health risks, including heart disease, fatigue, and sometimes death.
What are the signs of sleep apnea?
During your comprehensive exams, our Marysville dentists will monitor any possible symptoms of sleep apnea. If we're noticing any signs, then you will take a home sleep test to determine if you do have sleep apnea.
Treating sleep apnea requires a multidisciplinary approach. We will work with your primary healthcare physician to determine the proper course of treatment. This ensures you're receiving the best treatment available.
Working with your physician, we'll work together to determine the best treatment plan for you. Some options could include using the CPAP machine or oral appliance therapy. It all depends on the severity of your condition.
