Sleep Apnea

sleep apnea aurora dentistSleep apnea is a common problem where you experience pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Duration of breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They can occur 30 times or more per hour. Usually, normal breathing starts again, followed by a snort or choke sound.

Sleep Apnea is a chronic condition that causes disruption to your sleep, moving you from deep to light sleep. As a result, your sleep quality is poor, which causes fatigue and a loss of energy. Sleep apnea is a leading cause of excessive daytime fatigue.

Snoring and Sleep Apnea can cause:

  • Sleep-deprived partners – Loud snoring can keep those around you from getting good rest. It’s not uncommon for a partner to go to another room, or even on another floor of the house to sleep.
  • Daytime fatigue
  • Increased waist circumference
  • Abnormal cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Liver problems
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Abnormal heartbeats
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Sudden death
