Why get treated?
Apneas disrupt your sleep patterns and prevent you from enjoying deep, restful sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea may also be involved in the following:
- cardiovascular disease
- driving and work accidents
- poor physical and cognitive performance
- daytime sleepiness
- weight gain
- high blood pressure
- erectile difficulty
Types of Sleep Disorders
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
During sleep, the upper respiratory tract becomes blocked and prevents the person from breathing, which causes hypoxia (no oxygen to the organs and the brain).
Snoring is also caused by obstruction of the upper airways. It is the vibration of the tissues that causes the sound of snoring.
Nighttime bruxism produces microtrauma with moderate force causing pain in the joints of the jaw, muscles, teeth, neck, ears and tongue.
