Snoring is most often considered a mere annoyance, keeping loved ones from getting the restful sleep they need. The fact is, however, that excessive snoring can be an indicator of a deeply serious problem known as obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA. While not all people who snore are affected by sleep apnea, it is important to remember that excessive snoring – along with daytime fatigue and morning headaches – should be evaluated by a qualified physician in order to rule out the possibility of future complications. Dr. Deborah A. Romack with Cosmetic & Family Dentistry of Weatherford specializes in helping patients with sleep apnea find relief in ways that suit their lifestyles.
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the soft tissues that comprise the mouth and throat prevent proper airflow during sleep. The size and shape of your facial structures and throat are also contributing factors. OSA sufferers may experience hundreds of lapses in breathing each night, entirely unaware of the dangers their condition poses. Left untreated, sleep apnea can result in a variety of complications, including an increased risk for heart disease, stroke, respiratory failure, heart attack, and high blood pressure.
