What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder marked by interruptions and pauses in breathing during sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by obstructions in the airway, such as the tongue rolling back in the throat or collapsed tissues in the airway. Untreated sleep apnea can contribute to several serious health conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure and liver problems.
Sleep apnea must be diagnosed by a sleep physician. We recommend that you talk to our dentist, as well as your physician, if you suffer from the symptoms of sleep apnea. Common signs of sleep apnea include:
Types of Sleep Apnea
While sleep apnea is the most common sleep breathing disorder, there are many types of conditions which can affect your ability to breathe normally while asleep. Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) describes a set of disorders characterized by abnormal respiratory patterns and insufficient oxygen intake during sleep. Sleep disordered breathing causes disruption to your sleep pattern over a long period of time, causing you to be tired and exhausted and putting strain on your nervous system and major organs. Common sleep breathing disorders include:
What Can I Do?
Though Dr. Suneet S. Bath cannot diagnose sleep apnea or other sleep disordered breathing, he has had extensive training and continues his education to provide the best possible care. Our practice collaborates closely with licensed medical physicians and ENT (ear, nose and throat) specialists in our community to help screen for potential sleep and breathing disorders.
We offer take-home sleep tests as part of our screening process and may even refer our patients to a sleep center for a sleep study. Once a patient is diagnosed with sleep apnea by a physician, Impressions Dentistry can offer treatment and different oral appliances to help treat the disorder.
