Sleep Apnea and Your Health By Lily Etemad on October 28, 2015

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that occurs when a person’s breathing is partially or completely obstructed during sleep. This can occur multiple times during sleep without your knowledge. This means that two major organs, the brain and the heart, may not receive enough oxygen.


Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

If left untreated, sleep apnea may contribute to a number of health problems, including: 

  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Irregular heart beat
  • Anxiety or stress
  • Headaches

Schedule An Appointment 

During a dental examination the dental team can screen for signs and symptoms of sleep apnea and make a recommendation for you to see a physician specializing in sleep medicine. The treatment often includes the use of a breathing apparatus, surgery, or an oral device.

Schedule an appointment with Advanced Dentistry of Connecticut if you feel that you are at risk for sleep apnea.
