Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea, a sleep disorder characterized by breathing interruptions, robs you of restful nights. Discover effective solutions and embrace rejuvenating sleep for a healthier, energized life.

Sleep apnea can be characterized by repeated pauses in your breathing while you sleep. It can strike anyone at any age, children and adults alike. If pauses occur while you snore, and if choking or gasping follow the pauses, these are major signs that you have sleep apnea.

This serious disorder can have significant consequences, increasing the risk for heart attack, stroke, diabetes and other serious illnesses. In children, what is often diagnosed as ADHD is actually a behavior problem related to breathing problems while sleeping.

Some symptoms of sleep apnea include morning headaches, sleepiness during the day while at work or school, memory or learning problems and not being able to concentrate, feeling irritable, depressed, or having mood swings or personality changes.

Snoring And Sleep Apnea FAQs

What is snoring?

Snoring is the sound produced when the flow of air through the mouth and nose is partially obstructed during sleep. It is often caused by relaxed throat muscles or a narrow airway.

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by repetitive pauses in breathing during sleep. It occurs when the airway becomes completely blocked, leading to oxygen deprivation and awakening from sleep.

Common symptoms include loud snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, morning headaches, dry mouth, irritability, and difficulty concentrating.

Sleep apnea is diagnosed through a sleep study, which can be conducted at a sleep center or using a portable home sleep apnea test. These tests monitor your breathing patterns, heart rate, and oxygen levels during sleep.

 

Untreated sleep apnea can lead to serious health issues such as high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and an increased risk of accidents due to daytime sleepiness.

Treatment options include lifestyle changes, such as weight loss and avoiding alcohol and sedatives, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy, oral appliances, and in some cases, surgery.

CPAP therapy involves wearing a mask over the nose or nose and mouth while sleeping. The machine delivers a continuous flow of air pressure, keeping the airway open and preventing pauses in breathing.

Yes, non-surgical treatments for snoring include lifestyle modifications, such as sleeping on your side, using nasal strips or sprays, losing weight, and avoiding alcohol and sedatives before bedtime.

This is the best dentist in town and they have always worked with me, and I'm terrified of going to the dentist. These guys are very fast in the dental work they do and super gentle

I have been a patient at Southtown Dental for several years. After 50 years of not looking forward to going to the dentist, I can say that I actually enjoy going now. The hygienist, Deanna, is outstanding. Not only does she do a terrific job but she is gentle and very personable. The office staff is professional and on point. They are also very welcoming and friendly. It really comes down to the dentist care which has always been very good. Today my teeth are clean and sparkly- I look forward to going back in 6 months!
