Snoring is admittedly a significant problem for many Americans, disrupting the nightly rest of family members and sleeping partners. This loud, intrusive noise, however, may indicate the existence of a more serious underlying problem such as sleep apnea. At Cosmetic & Family Dentistry in Weatherford, TX, Dr. Deborah A. Romack and Dr. Garrett Mulkey offer comprehensive solutions to patients with sleep apnea, substantially reducing their risk for related complications.
Why is Treating Sleep Apnea So Important?
Men and women who are affected by obstructive sleep apnea experience numerous periods throughout the night in which their airflow is restricted as they sleep. The sound we identify as snoring is actually caused by vibrations of the soft tissues in the mouth and throat as the patient attempts to take in breath. When a person’s blood oxygen levels reach a certain point, the body and brain are considerably more susceptible to complications. Some problems associated with untreated sleep apnea include the following:
- High blood pressure
- Coronary artery disease
- Respiratory distress and failure
- Chronic daytime fatigue
- Confusion, memory problems, and inability to focus
- Complications following surgery
- Persistent headaches
- Circulatory problems
- High risk pregnancies
