Sleep Apnea and Snoring
When you find yourself suffering from sleep apnea or persistent snoring, you may be unsure of what steps to take next. Restless nights may begin adding up, leaving you searching for any forms of relief. Luckily, the Fort Worth dental office of Dr. Mitch Conditt can provide you with just that.
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by prolonged pauses in breathing during your regular sleep, which can have lasting effects on your everyday health. These pauses, which can last anywhere from a few seconds to a full minute, may be causing your brain not to receive enough oxygen. Worse, this disorder can lead to high blood pressure, stroke, heart failure, diabetes, and depression, among others. The lack of uninterrupted sleep may leave you feeling groggy and lethargic throughout the day, making for poor performance in school or work, and increasing your chances of being involved in a motor vehicle accident. There are more auto fatalities from sleep apnea than drunk driving.
As is the case with snoring, where your airflow is obstructed while you are trying to sleep, sleep apnea can be caused by a variety of factors. Included in these is your age, as your chances of being affected by these disorders increases towards middle age. Men are also more likely to suffer from these sleeping disorders, especially if the male is overweight, out of shape, or has a large neck size.
All hope for a blissful night’s sleep is not lost, however. Dr. Conditt’s office offers the very best in sleep apnea and snoring treatment, including the Rhinometer and Pharyngometer, which work to measure the size and stability of your airway, as well as the Embletta home sleep study. Don’t miss out on a peaceful sleep one night longer – call Dr. Conditt or contact him online today to schedule an appointment for detecting your sleep disorders.
