Sleep Apnea Syndrome: Reynolds Dental Has A Solution
What Is Sleep Apnea?
Snoring and chronic sleepiness are both indications that something could be seriously wrong with a person’s breathing during sleep. Snoring comes from air pressure within the body being forced through a narrow passageway. It can be a sign of a potentially dangerous sleep disorder called sleep apnea.
Why Is Sleep Apnea A Problem?
Sleep apnea requires careful attention and treatment because it is a potentially life-threatening condition. If an air passage partially or completely collapses during sleep normal sleep patterns are interrupted. Symptoms of sleep apnea can include drowsiness during the day, weight gain, sexual dysfunction, and depression. If sleep apnea is left untreated, it can result in high blood pressure, heart failure, heart attack, and possibly stroke.
