  • What is sleep apnea?

    Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by repeated interruptions in breathing during sleep. These interruptions, known as apneas, can occur due to a blockage of the airway (obstructive sleep apnea, the most common type), a failure in the brain’s signal to the muscles that control breathing (central sleep apnea), or a combination of both (complex sleep apnea syndrome). These breathing pauses can reduce the quality of sleep and lower the oxygen levels in the blood, leading to various health issues if left untreated.

  • How is sleep apnea diagnosed?

    Sleep apnea is typically diagnosed through a sleep study, or polysomnography, which can be conducted in a sleep center or at home with a portable device. During the study, various bodily functions during sleep are monitored, including heart rate, breathing patterns, brain waves, and blood oxygen levels. A doctor specializing in sleep disorders reviews the results to determine if sleep apnea is present and, if so, its severity. Based on the diagnosis, we will discuss appropriate treatment options and make a recommendation.

  • What are the symptoms of sleep apnea?

    The symptoms of sleep apnea can vary but often include:

    • Loud snoring
    • Episodes of stopped breathing during sleep, often noticed by another person
    • Gasping for air during sleep
    • Awakening with a dry mouth or sore throat
    • Morning headache
    • Insomnia or difficulty staying asleep
    • Excessive daytime sleepiness (hypersomnia)
    • Attention problems and irritability

    Recognizing these symptoms is crucial for seeking timely treatment. At Westhill Dental, we can help identify the signs of sleep apnea and provide or recommend treatment options tailored to your needs.
