About Sleep Apnea
Symptoms of sleep apnea include, but are not limited to, snoring, waking up with dry mouth or a headache, irritability, and feelings of fatigue. The disorder is more common in men than in women. OSA, if left untreated, can lead to more severe medical issues like diabetes, acid reflux, heart attacks and cardiovascular complications, strokes, depression, and high blood pressure. Luckily, sleep apnea is treatable! The team at Expressions and Cosmetic and Family Dentistry can help you understand your options and determine the right course of action. Depending on your specific case, you may require a CPAP device (continuous positive air pressure), an oral device, or surgery.
