Helps Sufferers of Sleep Apnea Get the Sleep They Need
Drs. Brent and Susan Hale have been using effective sleep apnea treatments to help patients get back to sleep, and wake feeling fully rested. Sleep Apnea can be a serious problem, and though millions of Americans suffer from the condition, few understand just how many problems it can cause.
If you or your loved one snores, there’s a good chance that sleep apnea is the cause. Snoring is more than just annoying, when caused by sleep apnea it can be dangerous. It disrupts breathing patterns, which robs the brain of oxygen, causing damage every night, a little bit at a time. Sleep apnea can also have detrimental effects on other organs as well – the good news is that relief is easy to find when you know where to look:
Sleep Apnea risks and symptoms:
The Most Common Kind of Sleep Apnea
The most common kind of sleep apnea is called Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome. Sleep apnea means “cessation of breath.” It is characterized by repetitive episodes of upper airway obstruction that occur during sleep, usually associated with a reduction in blood oxygen saturation. In other words, the airway becomes obstructed at several possible sites.
The upper airway can be obstructed by excess tissue in the airway, large tonsils, and a large tongue and usually includes the airway muscles relaxing and collapsing when asleep. Another site of obstruction can be the nasal passages. Sometimes the structure of the jaw and airway can be a factor in sleep apnea.
Drs. Brent and Susan Hale have extensive sleep apnea diagnostic and treatment experience. They have restored the health of hundreds of their Santa Monica dental patients by focusing on real solutions and options.
