The Warning Signs of Sleep Apnea
The warning signs of the disorder could vary. With sleep apnea, as you rest the soft tissues in the back of your mouth and in your throat collapse, which blocks airflow and causes you to stop breathing for brief periods. The brain then interrupts your REM sleep cycle to make you breathe. You may not remember this happening, but it could occur hundreds of times in a single night. This means you feel tired the next day, and may have issues with short term memory and your ability to concentrate. You could feel irritable, suffer from chronic snoring, and wake suddenly in the night gasping or air or choking. Don’t ignore these potential warning signs, please reach out to our team right away!
CPAP Machines and Oral Surgery
For many people, we can prescribe a CPAP machine to pump air from a machine through a hose and into a mask over your nose and mouth, so you can breathe without interruption. However, if you have a severe case, our team, could help with oral surgery. With this option, we can use surgery to reshape and alter oral structures and soft tissues to prevent the collapse of soft tissues, so you can breathe without interruptions. We can ensure your experience is comfortable with anesthesia. We want you to sleep without complication and enjoy a good night’s rest once again!
