Sleep apnea is a type of sleep disorder marked by loud snoring. For patients living with sleep apnea, their airway collapses when they become relaxed, such as during sleep. Relaxed muscles in the tongue and upper airway obstruct the flow of oxygen to the brain. When this happens, the brain signals the patient to wake, disrupting their sleep. This can happen dozens, even hundreds, of times each night, causing poor sleep and overall well-being.
Do you or your spouse have sleep apnea? Loud or excessive snoring is the most common sign of sleep apnea and the easiest to report, as other people in your household can verify it. Patients who suffer from sleep apnea also report experiencing the following symptoms:
When your body is not getting the restorative sleep it needs to function, your overall physical well-being becomes compromised. This can eventually impact all aspects of your health. If you experience any of the symptoms listed above, please call our office to schedule an appointment.
A variety of health and lifestyle factors can increase your risk of developing sleep apnea. These factors can include your family history, body weight, alcohol use, and smoking and tobacco use. A history of heart conditions can also increase your risk. While sleep apnea is a common condition that affects patients of all ages, it is most prevalent among adult men aged 40 and older.

One of our doctors will perform a thorough examination to determine your needs and design a treatment plan to meet your needs.
