What Is Sleep Apnea?
Loud snoring and chronic sleepiness often indicate a problem with how a person breathes while sleeping. Having an obstructed upper airway is one of the reasons people with sleep apnea snore. Snoring comes from air pressure inside the body that is forced through a narrow passageway. It’s a potentially dangerous sleep disorder and comes with many risk factors.
What is snoring?
Snoring is the loud, saw-like sound that occurs when air flows past relaxed throat muscles. Whenever you inhale or exhale, the tissues vibrate. Everyone snores from time to time. But snoring on a regular basis can point to a severe health problem, especially if it causes you to wake several times in the night. In addition, it can cause strain in your relationship if it interferes with your spouse or bed partner’s sleep.
What are sleep disorders?
Sleep disorders are problems with the quality, timing, and amount of sleep, which result in daytime distress and impairment in functioning.
What is chronic fatigue?
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a health condition characterized by unexplained extreme fatigue that lasts for a minimum of six months. The fatigue worsens with physical or mental activity but rarely improves with rest.
What is considered daytime tiredness?
People with daytime fatigue are exhausted but usually don’t fall asleep during the day. They struggle to get through a typical day’s activities. Symptoms of daytime fatigue include weakness, depleted energy, and an apparent lack of motivation.
What is Insomnia?
The sleep disorder insomnia is when a person has trouble falling or staying asleep. The condition can be short-term, can last a long time, or may also come and go. Insomnia is chronic if it happens at least three nights a week for three months or more. Read more here.
What causes sleeping headaches?
Several sleep disorders, health disorders, and personal habits can trigger a headache upon waking. Sleep apnea, migraines, and lack of sleep are commonly associated with headaches. However, teeth grinding, alcohol use, and certain medications can also cause you to wake up with a headache.
What is NightLase therapy?
NightLase is a fast and practically non-invasive treatment for snoring. It is a state-of-the-art procedure that can help improve your chances of getting a restful night’s sleep. The FDA-approved therapy uses laser energy to warm and tighten the soft tissues at the back of your throat and soft palate. It is a fantastic procedure to help treat sleep apnea patients who can’t tolerate CPAP or oral devices. No anesthesia is needed for this procedure.
What is a CPAP, and why is it used?
CPAP is an acronym for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. This breathing device is used to help a person with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) breathe easier while sleeping. This fantastic machine increases air pressure in your throat so that your airway doesn’t collapse when you breathe in. It helps with pauses in breathing.
What is oral appliance therapy?
If you have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), it means the soft tissues at the back of your mouth relax during sleep, blocking your airways.Ultimately, these blockages cause you to wake up multiple times throughout the night. Not only is this annoying, but it also increases your risk of severe health problems, including heart disease. Learn more about OSA here.
Custom oral appliances are a type of mouthguard designed to improve sleep and reduce the loudness and frequency of snoring. If you’re living with obstructive sleep apnea and you use a CPAP machine but aren’t satisfied with the results––an oral appliance may help you breathe more comfortably.
