Sleep Apnea & Airways

Sleep Apnea Dentist 78759

 

Sleep Apnea and Airway – A sleep disorder that is identified by an obstruction of the airways. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) occurs when the throat muscles become relaxed, thereby impeding the flow of oxygen that naturally occurs during nasal breathing. This obstruction interrupts our natural sleep which can cause snoring, headachesand can potentially be dangerous and is a serious problem at best. A lack of air disrupts our sleep cycle and reduces the intake of oxygen to the brain and heart.

Disrupted sleep cycles reduces our effectiveness throughout the day and detracts from our ability to function properly while awake. This can complicate our work life, social interaction, schooling and even daily driving.

 

Symptoms of OSA:

  • Fatigue
  • Daytime drowsiness
  • Exhaustion
  • Poor judgment
  • Lack of concentration
  • Inability to focus
  • Memory loss
  • Reduced reaction times
  • Irritability
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Gastric reflux
