What are the symptoms of sleep apnea?
Millions of Americans are affected by sleep apnea, but often, the condition remains undiagnosed. If untreated, sleep apnea can increase your risk of health problems including depression, obesity, cardiovascular diseases, and heart attacks. There are two major types of sleep apnea: obstructive and central. Symptoms include:
- Loud, chronic snoring
- Insomnia or frequently interrupted sleep
- Waking up with a headache, dry mouth, or sore throat
- Difficulty concentrating or problems with memory
- Sleepiness or irritability throughout the day
Obstructive and central sleep apnea (OSA and CSA) involve similar symptoms, but they have different causes. OSA arises from mechanical problems in your breathing apparatus, while CSA is caused by nerve issues, where your brain fails to communicate with your breathing muscles.
How is sleep apnea treated?
When you visit our office, you’ll take a test to determine your type of sleep apnea and the best approach for treatment. The most common treatment method is a sleep apnea machine, but some patients prefer oral appliances. These appliances are FDA-approved as safe and effective in addressing mild to moderate sleep apnea.
With symptoms alleviated, you’ll finally be able to get a good night’s sleep, improving overall health and well-being. And with your complimentary dental exam, you’ll enjoy improved oral health as well. Dr. Martirosyan will recommend the best approach for treatment and help you manage your sleep apnea symptoms. Call Pacific Dental Care in Pasadena to schedule your sleep apnea consultation. Improved sleep means better quality of life.
