What Is Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea, also referred to as OSA, is a common sleep-breathing disorder that causes you to repeatedly halt and begin breathing throughout the night. These cessations of breathing are known as apneas or episodes. OSA is caused by the over-relaxation of the tissues surrounding your airways, causing them to become blocked, after which your brain triggers you to wake up repeatedly throughout the night. Some of the most common signs of sleep apnea include:

  • Difficulty focusing on work, during conversations, or on daily tasks.
  • Headaches in the morning.
  • Mood changes, including easily getting upset or symptoms of depression.
  • Decreased sex drive.
  • Chronic, loud snoring.
  • Excessive daytime fatigue.

The Dangers of Untreated Sleep Apnea

Some people are under the impression that sleep apnea isn’t a dangerous medical condition when left untreated, but that’s simply not true. The lack of oxygen getting to your brain and the inability to reach a deep state of sleep can lead to a variety of health issues. When you don’t receive treatment for your condition, it could lead to an increased risk of:

  • Strokes
  • Heart attacks
  • High blood pressure
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease

At-Home Testing for Sleep Apnea

The first step towards treating your condition is receiving a diagnosis, which can be completed by having your sleep patterns reviewed by a team of experts. At 360 Dental Lounge, we offer at-home sleep testing for those who feel they could benefit from it. These tests involve using simplified breathing monitors that track your vitals as you rest in the comfort of your own home. It will monitor your oxygen levels, breathing frequency, and pulse rate, which can then be examined to determine whether you have a sleep-breathing disorder.

Sleep Apnea Treatment Options

Once you receive a diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea, our team can begin going over your treatment options with you, which will allow you to get the great quality of rest you deserve. Depending on your condition and comfort with certain therapies, you may benefit from either using a CPAP device or oral appliance therapy. If you already have a CPAP machine but have difficulty falling asleep with a mask on your face, we highly recommend visiting us to consider oral appliance therapy! These utilize customized devices to shift your airways open as you rest, similar to wearing a nightguard.
