If you ever notice your breathing feels obstructed while trying to sleep, then you might be experiencing sleep apnea. However, here are some other indications and symptoms that you may be struggling with this condition:
There are typically two kinds of this condition: obstructive and central sleep apnea. The former occurs when the upper airway gets blocked multiple times during sleep, decreasing or completely negating your airflow. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common type, as the airway can be narrowed due to large tonsils, obesity, and/or changes in hormone levels. Central sleep apnea happens when the brain doesn’t send the signals necessary for breathing. This can be a result of health conditions that impact your brain’s control over your airway and chest muscles.
Generally speaking, sleep apnea is considered a chronic condition that won’t go away by itself. This is typically due to the anatomy of the patient, which usually remains the same after adolescence. For instance, if you often sleep on your back, your tongue can fall into your throat and obstruct your airway. If this is the case, then you’ll certainly want to visit your sleep apnea dentist for treatment, as the issue will not resolve itself with time.
Sleep Apnea can be a dangerous condition since it can cause several different serious or life-threatening complications. These can involve:
If you’re struggling with sleep apnea, then you can try to resolve the issue through various means, such as lifestyle changes, therapies, and even surgical procedures. Several at-home remedies include regular exercise, quitting tobacco use, weight loss (if overweight), using nasal decongestants, and avoiding sleeping on your back. Some common therapy options involve using a CPAP to help you breathe as well as wearing an oral appliance to improve your airway. Consult your dentist about your situation, and they’ll walk you through your treatment options to help you achieve unobstructed sleep.
