Many patients are not aware of having a sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder which is characterized by breaks and pauses in breathing while asleep. It can be a life threatening condition such that it can lead to high blood pressure, heart attack, or stroke. Before worse could happen, visit Pembroke Pines Dental Associates in Pembroke Pines, Florida for sleep apnea treatment.
As early as possible, it is best to treat your sleeping disorder to avoid complications that mostly affects your heart. It is also the reason for having poor performance while at work or school. An overwhelming daytime fatigue is one of the symptoms of sleep apnea. Get a checkup now.
3 Types of Sleep Apnea
There are two types of sleep apnea, obstructive, central, and mixed sleep apnea.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) - the more common among the three. It is caused by a blockage to the airway when the soft tissue at the back of the throat collapses.
Central Sleep Apnea (CSA)- occurs when the brain fails to send a signal to respiratory system to breathe.
Mixed Sleep Apnea - it is the combination of obstructive (OSA) and Central Sleep Apnea (CSA).
Rather than CPAP system or continuous positive airway pressure, many patients have prefered an oral appliance. It is a small plastic device which a dentist could fit into the mouth of the patient. It is similar to having a mouthguard or a retainer you may have worn with orthodontia work. Since obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is caused by an air blockage, it works by preventing the tongue and soft tissues at the back of your throat from collapsing keeping the airway open while you are asleep.
Oral appliance is a better option because it has several advantages. Compared to CPAP, it is small and easy to carry especially when traveling. It can also be used for other treatments such as weight management. Giving it a good trial and following up with your doctor and dentist are important to determine whether the device is appropriate for you or not.
