What is Sleep Apnea?

Do you suffer from excessive snoring? Schedule a consultation with Dr. Safar to discuss sleep apnea treatment. Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that causes your breathing to stop repeatedly throughout the night. When you stop breathing, your brain responds by waking your body, disrupting your sleep, and preventing you from receiving the quality rest you need to feel your best. Such disruptions in your breathing can happen dozens of times each night, sometimes for many seconds at a time. This can cost your brain and other organs vital oxygen, impacting your overall health and well-being.

There are many common symptoms that may indicate sleep apnea, including signs that may be reported by a spouse or other family member. Symptoms can include loud snoring, disrupted breathing, or gasping for air during sleep. Sleep apnea can also impact the quality of your waking life in a variety of ways. These signs include headaches, persistent fatigue, irritability, and difficulty concentrating during the day.

Loud snoring is the most common symptom, but not everyone who snores suffers from sleep apnea. Dr. Safar is a trained dental professional who is passionate about treating patients who suffer from excessive snoring. Our team can determine if your snoring is a sign of a more serious problem.

What Causes Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea can have a variety of causes, so be sure to speak to our experienced dental team to discuss your condition. Most common cases of sleep apnea occur when the muscles in the back of the mouth and throat relax during sleep. When the throat muscles relax, the airway can narrow or close while breathing. Although sleep apnea can affect patients of all ages, it is more prevalent in adult men over the age of 40. Certain health factors, such as weight, alcohol use, smoking and a history of heart conditions, can also increase your risk of developing sleep apnea.

How is Sleep Apnea Treated?

Dr. Safar can recommend specialized oral appliances to help you breathe. A properly-fitted oral appliance can reposition your jaw and reopen your airway, allowing you to breathe easier. Our dental team will work to reduce the severity of your snoring without compromising your comfort so that you can get a full night’s sleep. Be sure to schedule a consultation with Dr. Safar to determine if a sleep apnea oral appliance is right for you.

Best experience getting my cavity filled ever! I've been to a lot of dentists in San Diego, but none make their patients more comfortable or do more careful and precise work than Celebrity Smile. I feel like I am in excellent hands here; love the dentist, the assistant, the hygienist, everyone here is 5 stars!
