Do you frequently wake up with a sore throat or dry mouth? Does your partner complain about your loud breathing or snoring at night? Often wake up gasping for breath? You may be suffering from a common condition known as obstructive sleep apnea! At Hiremath Family Dentistry we are proud to offer sleep apnea treatment in Oro Valley for our patients that suffer from the condition and are interested in relieving the short-term and long-term effects caused by sleep apnea. Not sure if sleep apnea treatment near you is the best option? We recommend a sleep study prior to any sleep apnea treatment. During a sleep study, a doctor can determine if you suffer from sleep apnea and if so, how severe it is. Based upon your sleep study, various treatment options may be available.
Obstructive sleep apnea is a common condition which results in the patient’s airway becoming obstructed. When the airway becomes obstructed, the patient is actually deprived of oxygen, resulting in them often waking up gasping for air. Deprivation of oxygen can affect the brain and other systems in the body, resulting in a range of short-term and long-term symptoms.
As mentioned above, sleep apnea has various short-term and long-term effects on a patient. In the short term, irritability, headaches, mood swings, fatigue, weight gain and other symptoms are common. In the long-term, sleep apnea can actually increase your risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, heart attack and even stroke. Treating sleep apnea can reduce your short-term and long-term side effects of the condition.
