Are loud snoring, morning headaches, and sleepiness a constant problem for you? Sleep apnea may be the problem.
Similar to snoring, when the muscles in the back of the throat relax, the airway narrows as you breathe in. This can cause trouble when breathing in and may lower the oxygen levels in your blood. When this happens, the brain lightly wakes you up to reopen the airway, often creating a snorting, choking or gasping sound in the process. This pattern can continue for as many as 30 times per hour without you knowing.
While lifestyle changes are typically recommended, the knowledgeable staff at Nicosia Dental can provide various methods of treatment for this common, yet serious condition. Call Nicosia Dental and see what options are available to you.
