When the airway is not working the way it should, it can interfere with human health in a number of ways. Yet, airway issues, like sleep apnea, often go undiagnosed and untreated, because, much of the time, those affected are unaware that there is anything wrong with their airway.
What is Sleep Apnea?
What Causes Sleep Apnea?
With obstructive sleep apnea, the airway becomes blocked during sleep.
With central sleep apnea, the brain fails to send the body correct breathing signals during sleep.
All three types of sleep apnea can be treated with the help of a dental professional, and/or an airway specialist.
Sleep Apnea Symptoms
- Intellectual decline
- Daytime sleepiness (even after a full night’s sleep)
- Respiratory disorder
- Diabetes mellitus
- Sleeping problems
- Heart disease
- Respiratory ventilation
- Dry mouth upon waking
- Sudden gasping for air during sleep
- Difficulty concentrating during the day
Sleep apnea is a treatable health condition, and, with treatment, individuals may notice significant improvements in their overall health.
