Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea is a condition you may not realize you have until a partner mentions that your breathing is irregular or stops for a few seconds during the night. This can happen continuously, and it may result in serious health conditions due to insufficient oxygen being distributed around the body. When you stop breathing in your sleep, your heart must work extra hard.
The number of people who suffer from cardiovascular conditions and sleep apnea should not be ignored. If you have been made aware of complications with breathing in your sleep, seek help from both your GP and dentist immediately. It is important to identify the causes of sleep apnea so that you can receive effective treatment to help regulate your breathing during the night.
You Might Suffer From Sleep Apnea If…
- You Snore
- Have been told you stop breathing when asleep
- Have High Blood Pressure or are on Blood Pressure Medication
- Have Heart Disease
- Have trouble losing weight
- Wake up exhausted in the morning
Relief from Snoring and Teeth Grinding
A continuous positive airway pressure device (CPAP) is the most common treatment option for sleep apnea. Dentists on the Square can also provide effective treatment options for many of our patients. Nightguards that are specifically designed to help keep the airways open are much less intrusive than a CPAP device. Our dentists may be able to provide you with a more suitable solution to disrupted breathing at night.
Our team will work closely with you to ensure that any treatments we provide complement treatments from your doctor. The important thing is that you are able to breathe comfortably when you are asleep and do not suffer any adverse health complications. Do not ignore the signs and symptoms of sleep apnea. Book a comprehensive exam with Dentists on the Square today to help determine the root cause of the problem before it is too late!
