At Designer Smiles in Fargo, we often see patients who say they have been struggling with inadequate sleep for months or even years. Some of these people end up being diagnosed with sleep apnea or related conditions.
You Can’t Just “Tough It Out”
The reluctance to obtain professional help is unfortunate, because it takes a toll on their health and reduces their quality of life. If they are keeping someone up at night, it makes life more difficult for that person, as well.
Protect Your Health
Sleep apnea is a condition where you have frequent, recurring delays in breathing while you sleep. These delays can last for up to 60 seconds. When the brain is not getting enough oxygen it interferes with vital biological processes.
There are three types of sleep apnea:
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Cause: Throat muscles relax and cover the airway. This is the most prevalent type.
Central Sleep Apnea
Cause: The brain doesn’t send signals to the muscles that monitor breathing.
Complex Sleep Apnea Syndrome (Treatment-emergent Central Sleep Apnea)
This is a combination of both conditions described previously.
