As everyone knows, a full night of uninterrupted sleep is vital to one’s overall health and well-being. If your loud snoring is keeping everyone in your household awake, or if you’re not getting the restful night’s sleep you require, obstructive sleep apnea may be to blame. According to statistics, obstructive sleep apnea is a widespread condition that affects approximately 25 million adults throughout the United States. In addition to the intermittent blockage of airflow and breathing cessation, those who suffer with sleep apnea can also experience abrupt awakenings and episodes of gasping for air. Because sleep apnea interrupts the normal sleep cycle, sufferers tend to experience daytime symptoms, such as fatigue, headaches and difficulty concentrating. Unfortunately, these symptoms can have dangerous consequences that may result in accidents as well as become contributing factors in the development of serious illnesses. As a skilled specialist our oral and maxillofacial surgeon is well equipped to treat sleep apnea, and can prescribe a custom fabricated oral appliance or other modes of care to alleviate the symptoms of this condition.
