Sleep Apnea Treatment
Our sleep apnea treatment could be the answer if you or someone you know has been diagnosed with sleep apnea. Ocean Front Dental’s sleep dentistry in Vancouver offers sleep apnea treatment with the objective of eliminating the bulky and uncomfortable CPAP machine that is often prescribed for those suffering from sleep-related breathing disorders.
What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a condition that causes the muscles in the back of the throat to relax. Once relaxed the airways will close causing breathing cessation. People with serious sleep apnea can stop breathing up to 30 times an hour.
Although snoring and sleep apnea don’t always go hand in hand, people who are chronic snorers should schedule an appointment for sleep apnea testing. If you are diagnosed Dr. Nick Seddon, General Dentist, and his Ocean Front Dental Clinic in Vancouver offer sleep dentistry and sleep apnea treatment.
Signs you may be suffering from sleep apnea
You may need sleep apnea treatment if you:
- Snore, although snoring and sleep apnea aren’t always related
- Wake up gasping for breath
- Suffer from daytime sleepiness
- Have cessations in breathing while sleeping that have been witnessed by a partner
- Are moody
- Have morning headaches
- Suffer from insomnia
Sleep apnea can cause serious complications including death. Sleep apnea testing is vital if you believe you may be dealing with sleep apnea. Unfortunately, thousands of cases of sleep apnea go undetected every year, as the patient has no idea that he or she is suffering.
The sleep apnea treatment we provide in Vancouver is used for eliminating the bulky and uncomfortable CPAP machine that is used for regular sleep apnea treatment. Unfortunately, most of those machines go unused after six months because they are loud, uncomfortable, and inconvenient.
