Sleep Apnea Henderson

Sleep apnea

Sleep apnea is a common dental condition that affects breathing as you sleep. Most people with sleep apnea Henderson are not usually aware of their condition since it usually occurs at night.

The best way to know whether you have sleep apnea is to let somebody else observe you as you sleep to check for symptoms of the condition. What’s more, sleep apnea causes other daytime symptoms accrued from poor sleeping patterns. Visit us today atDr. George Harouni dental clinic to get the best sleep apnea treatment in the city.

How does it occur?

Sleep apnea is characterized by loud and excessive snoring as you sleep. This snoring is caused by an obstruction of the airway during sleep. As you struggle to breathe through a limited airway, the throat muscles collapse intermittently causing the loud snoring. This eventually causes poor sleep patterns with the victim waking up at different times of the night to change their sleeping position.

After waking up, these conditions continue to affect you making you feel exhausted and sleepy due to the interrupted sleep cycle. Sleep apnea Henderson can be quite dangerous since one may be unable to drive or operate heavy machinery while feeling exhausted during the day.

Causes of sleep apnea

Before getting treatment at our clinic for sleep apnea Henderson, the dentist must first perform a dental consultation in order to diagnose the cause of the problem.

Once detected, the dentist will use a suitable treatment procedure to treat the sleep apnea.

One of the most common reasons for sleep apnea is being overweight.

Obesity

People who are overweight run the risk of getting obstructive sleep apnea since the throat muscles may be constricted. Heavy pressure on the throat muscles as you sleep may cause them to collapse thus causing sleep apnea.

In such a case, selecting a suitable sleeping position may reduce the rate of sleep apnea. However, you can consult our dental experts at Dr. George Harouni dental clinic to determine the best treatment for this condition.

Genetics

Having a narrow neck can increase your chances of contracting sleep apnea. As you sleep, the throat muscles may begin to constrict since the airway is not wide enough.

For such a condition, we usually recommend dental surgery to widen the airway. This may be done by removing some of the tissue at the throat to expand the airway and reduce incidences of sleep apnea. Having a constricted nose may also cause sleep apnea. Since breathing may be a problem as you sleep, it is quite common for such people to snore loudly during sleep.

Visit us today at Dr. George Harouni dental clinic and enjoy fast and efficient sleep apnea treatment.

Weak thr‎oat muscles

If your throat muscles are insufficient in keeping the airway open, it is very common to experience sleep apnea. We usually recommend dental surgery for such cases to correct the functioning of the throat muscles and eventually stop the sleep apnea.
