Not quite sure if you or a loved one suffer from sleep apnea? Common symptoms include:
Prior to any treatment for sleep apnea, we recommend a sleep study. During a sleep study, doctors can properly diagnose whether you suffer from sleep apnea and let you know how severe the condition is. Our sleep apnea treatment is for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea, those with more severe cases may need additional treatment.
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder which results in the patient’s airway being obstructed while they are trying to sleep. As the airway becomes obstructed, the patient, their brain and many other systems in their body are deprived of oxygen, resulting in a range of daily and long-term symptoms.
Sleep apnea not only causes daily symptoms which can impact the patient’s day-to-day life, it can have an impact on your overall health. Patients that suffer from untreated sleep apnea are at higher risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, heart attack and even stroke.
At Legacy Dental Care we offer sleep apnea dental appliances in Huntington Beach. Sleep apnea oral appliances can be used to reduce the symptoms caused by sleep apnea by allowing the patient to properly breathe while sleeping. This results in less day-to-day symptoms and can even prevent complications later in life.
