If something happens while you are sleeping, you may not ever realize that is happening. Your loved ones may tell you about it in the morning, but you likely have no recollection of the things that happened while you were asleep. Because of this, it can be very easy to ignore a problem occurring while you sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a sleep disorder that can disturb those around you with the loud noises while also creating health risks for you. The team at E-Care Dentistry in Olathe, KS is here to help you finally take care of sleep apnea.
Lower Health Risks
By taking care of or treating sleep apnea, you can lower the health risks that OSA can increase. Sleep apnea obstructs the path to get air into your body. The lack of oxygen in bloodstream can cause your body to recalibrate the settings. Your body may overcompensate by increasing blood pressure. High blood pressure can put you at risk of stroke or heart disease. Your dentist can help you navigate the effects that sleep apnea is having on your health; your dentist can also help you decide on the best way to treat your OSA.
Improve Your Daily Life
Not only will treating your sleep apnea help improve your relationships with your loved ones driven crazy by your snoring, but it can help improve your own day to day existence. Living with obstructive sleep apnea can leave you drowsy with mood swings to face the day. You may think you were asleep for a full eight hours, but the amount of restful eye movement (REM) sleep you can get with sleep apnea is limited.
