Sleep Apnea Therapy in Montgomery Dental Associates
What is Seep Apnea
Sleep Apnea is a serious Sleep disorder that occurs when a person’s breathing is interrupted during sleep. People with untreated Sleep Apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times. This means that your body specially the brain, and the rest of the body, may not get enough oxygen causing very serious damage to the body.
There are actually two different types of Sleep Apnea, including obstructive sleep apnea due to something blocking the airway when you sleep, and central sleep apnea, which is due to the brain not sending required signals to your body and muscles to breathe.
People who have Sleep Apnea are at risk of severe side effects. These include lack of sleep, of course, high blood pressure, heart damage, diabetes, stroke, headaches, heart attack, and depression. At Montgomery Dental Associates, our dentists will discuss the different options we offer for resolving Sleep Apnea including, TAP and SomnoMed.
What to Expect
If you have reason to believe that you may have this condition, then it is important to talk to our qualified dentist in Montgomery Dental Associates as soon as possible. There are too many negative side effects to ignore this concern. Likely, you will need to take part in a sleep study. This is done to evaluate your condition, determine if it is Sleep Apnea, figure out how severe it is, and then determine what type of Sleep Apnea you have. If you suffer from obstructive Sleep Apnea, then we are here to help you. Your dentist here at Montgomery Dental Associates will discuss with you options including the TAP and SomnoMed systems. Depending on the severity of your condition, one may be preferred over the other.
