Common Questions About Sleep Apnea

What is sleep apnea?

When you have sleep apnea, your tongue or other soft tissues in your mouth block your airway while you sleep. This can interrupt your sleep cycle and cause you to snore and gasp for air throughout the night. This leads to poor sleep quality, affecting you and others in your household.

Why is sleep apnea bad?

Sleep apnea not only affects your quality of sleep, it can also increase your risk for other health issues. If left untreated, you increase your risks for heart disease, strokes, depression, diabetes, and high blood pressure. A common side effect is dry mouth, which can lead to oral health problems too.

Will sleep apnea go away?

Unfortunately, without treatment or changes in your lifestyle, sleep apnea will not go away. Many patients find that with weight loss, they don’t experience their sleep apnea symptoms anymore. However, you can also find relief with our laser treatment options and a custom-made oral appliance. Don’t wait to find the care you need!

What are the symptoms of sleep apnea?

Some of the symptoms of sleep apnea include snoring, gasping for air while you sleep, dry mouth, fatigue, and daytime sleepiness. You may not notice many of these signs without reports from a bed partner. However, even if you recognize one or two, schedule a visit right away.
