Dental Sleep Expert, Breath and
Airway Expert for Adults and Children
Sleep apnea is a serious but often undiagnosed condition that affects millions of Americans more and more every year. Patients with this disorder are forced to power through the symptoms because they’ve learned so much about how it feels to be tired during the day from living their whole lives like this. While many patients say they don’t sleep well, we find that when people come in for testing, most can’t believe there’s any chance at all they could have sleep apnea!
Do you feel like your sleep is a struggle? You could be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) occurs when the airway becomes blocked and doesn’t open up again during breathing pauses, which happen while we’re asleep. This can make it so difficult to get enough restful slumber that extreme exhaustion sets in throughout the day. You may also find yourself feeling discouraged or depressed! Let us help with our extensive screening process for this condition followed by treatment options such as The Vivos System. If needed – we would love nothing more than seeing you reach a quality night’s rest!
Symptoms of Sleep Apnea
If you suffer from sleep apnea, it can have a major impact on your health. Sleep apnea is when breathing has stopped during the night for at least ten seconds or more and this sudden interruption in oxygen flow leads to various symptoms including:
Your partner is the one who might notice you snoring or not feeling rested in the morning. They could even hear you wheezing, gasping for air, and/or experiencing shortness of breath at night when they sleep near to you. Are these symptoms a sign that something may be wrong and your restful sleep could be jeopardized?
