Sleep Apnea Treatment
The most common type of sleep apnea is Obstructive Sleep Apnea, which occurs due to a physical blockage in the back of the throat.
Sleep apnea is a serious medical problem sometimes causing high blood pressure, which could lead to heart failure or stroke. There are also the day-to-day negative affects of sleep apnea that make life difficult: problems at work/school, danger operating heavy equipment, and physical and emotional stress. At Sorriso Dental, we treat sleep apnea by providing oral devices that can be used to position your mouth in a way that prevents throat blockage.
Signs of sleep apnea:
- Insomnia/difficulty sleeping
- Loud snoring, snorting, or choking sounds while sleeping
- Headaches upon waking
- Extreme drowsiness
- Falling asleep unintentionally during the day
