Do you find yourself tossing and turning through the night? Are you dragging your feet day after day, overwhelmed by a fatigue that you just can’t shake? If your partner tells you your snoring is bringing down the house or you find yourself jerking awake over and over again, feeling like you’re choking, you could have a serious problem. Sleep apnea could be stealing more than your good night’s rest.
Sleep apnea means an obstructed airway
If you are fighting with these sleep apnea symptoms, we think you should pay attention. Breathing problems at night could indicate a sleep disorder. Sleep apnea is generally due to an obstructed airway. This obstruction is often caused by a misaligned bite, or excess throat tissues.
Your health could be at risk
Sleep apnea is a condition that causes your breathing to stop. Each pause can be several seconds to several minutes long, and these pauses may occur 5 to 30 times or more in an hour. Each time your breathing stops, you awaken briefly to resume your breath.
This constant awakening can stop you from reaching the deep stags of sleep you need to recharge, taking its toll on you during the day by robbing you of the energy you need to concentrate, work and thrive. Common impacts of sleep apnea are poor job performance, a short temper and driving or workplace accidents. Additionally, when you stop breathing repeatedly, your heart must to work much harder than it should, increasing your risk of heart attack, high blood pressure, or stroke.
The good news is you don’t have to let sleep apnea continue to destroy your rest and your health. An Edmonton dentist can assist you in finding answers. Once sleep apnea is diagnosed, dental treatment could be a help you to control your sleep apnea.
