Snoring and Sleep Apnea
Vista Dental offers sleep apnea solutions other than a bulky and loud CPAP machine to help improve your quality of sleep!
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a medical problem that may be caused by a nasal obstruction, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), or having large tonsils.
Sleep apnea is considered to be a serious sleep disorder because the patient can stop breathing abruptly, which may stop oxygen flow to the brain.
Treatment for sleep apnea could save your life, so any symptoms need to be taken seriously. Dr. Don Kim may recommend a CPAP alternative and lifestyle changes as part of your treatment plan for this condition.
Signs of Sleep Apnea
Most common signs include:
- Waking up short of breath
- Loud snoring
- Making snoring or choking sounds in your sleep
- Unintentionally falling asleep during the day
- Unexplainable periods of extreme exhaustion
- Waking up with a headache
Most common risk factors include:
- Being over the age of 40
- Being male
- Being considered overweight
- If you have a family history of sleep apnea there is a high chance that you too will develop it
