What Is Sleep Apnea?
Do you snore loudly and wake up feeling tired after a long night’s sleep? You may be suffering from sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a disorder that affects your ability to obtain oxygen during the night. Sufferers stop breathing numerous times while sleeping, also depriving them of the restorative properties of sleep. While there are two types of sleep apnea, Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), OSA is more common. OSA is caused by an obstruction of the throat, closing the airway. Patients often visit a sleep apnea dentist while searching for a snoring cure. Our practice serves surrounding areas including Tarpon Springs and Ozona, FL.
