What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. There are two common types of sleep apnea: central and obstructive. Central sleep apnea occurs when the brain fails to send signals to the muscles that control breathing. Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the airway becomes blocked, preventing air from flowing into or out of the lungs.

Treatments For Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea can have serious health consequences, including an increased risk of heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure. Treatment for sleep apnea may include lifestyle changes, such as losing weight and avoiding the inhalation of tobacco products. In our Goldsboro, NC office, we also recommend various treatment options for sleep apnea. These include the following:

A mandibular advancement device (MAD) is a mouthpiece that holds the lower jaw slightly forward during sleep. This prevents the tongue from blocking the airway and allows for normal breathing.

A tongue retaining device is a small, plastic appliance that goes in your mouth and holds your tongue in place. This prevents your tongue from blocking your airway while you sleep.

Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the most common treatment for sleep apnea. A CPAP machine delivers a steady stream of air through a mask that you wear during sleep. The air pressure keeps your airway open and allows you to breathe normally.

Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

There are a number of symptoms that can be associated with sleep apnea. These include loud snoring, gasping or choking during sleep, waking up feeling short of breath, and waking up with a headache or dry mouth. Some people with sleep apnea may also experience daytime fatigue, irritability, and difficulty concentrating. If you think you may have sleep apnea, it is important to visit a sleep lab for a proper diagnosis. The most common symptoms include the following:

  • Insomnia
  • Snoring
  • Headaches

The Cost of Dental Implants

Just as the process of placing implants is different for everyone, the associated cost is different as well. This depends on a variety of factors, such as the type of implants selected, the current oral health condition, and the need for preliminary treatment. The best way to secure an accurate price for this procedure will be to attend a free consultation at our office!

Is Treatment Right For You?

If you believe that you may be suffering from sleep apnea, it is essential that you seek a definitive diagnosis and treatment right away. One common method of diagnosing sleep problems is through a sleep study, which can be done in a sleep lab. Sleep studies measure factors like brain activity, heart rate, and breathing during sleep. They can help doctors diagnose sleep apnea and get you on the path to proper recovery!
