Winfield Sleep Medicine Dentist

Your oral health impacts the rest of your body more than you may realize. Many studies support the link between clean teeth and a healthy heart, blood pressure control and diabetes prevention. These benefits are extended by those who keep their sleep apnea under control. Sleep apnea is a common condition that causes airways to close during sleep, which significantly impacts your sleep quality and puts you at risk for major health conditions. A Winfield sleep medicine dentist at Distinctive Dental Solutions is here to answer your questions. 

What Causes Sleep Apnea?

Getting to the root cause of your sleep apnea is key to solving it. Sleep apnea has several different causes depending on the individual, so we provide testing to discern what’s causing yours: 

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Some individuals experience trouble breathing at night due to obstructive sleep apnea. With this condition, the throat muscles relax to the point of blocking the airway. 
  • Central Sleep Apnea: This form of sleep apnea happens when the brain doesn’t send the right signals to the muscles that are responsible for breathing. 
  • Complex Sleep Apnea Syndrome: If someone has a combination of both central and obstructive sleep apnea, it’s considered a complex syndrome that requires individualized treatment. 

An individual with sleep apnea may wake up between 5 to 20 times every hour as their body repeatedly reopens the airway. Symptoms include:

  • Loud snoring
  • Gasping for air
  • Headaches in the morning
  • Daytime drowsiness
  • Trouble concentrating while awake

Sleep apnea can raise your risk of heart disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and more. If you think you may have the symptoms of sleep apnea, you’ll want to speak with our dentists immediately.
