Sleep Apnea Syndrome: Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry Has A Solution

What Is Sleep Apnea?

Snoring and chronic sleepiness is a condition and indication that something could be seriously wrong with a persons breathing during sleep. It’s indicative of an airway that is not completely open while sleeping. Snoring comes from air pressure within the body being forced through a narrow passageway. It’s a sign of a potentially dangerous sleep disorder called sleep apnea.

How Can Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry Help?

Here at Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry we treat sleep apnea. Sleep apnea requires careful attention and treatment because it’s potentially a life threatening condition. If an air passage collapses during sleep it can cause complete blockage or partial blockage of the airway. This will interrupt sleep patterns. Symptoms of sleep apnea can include drowsiness during the day, weight gain, sexual dysfunction, and depression. If sleep apnea is left untreated it can result in high blood pressure, heart failure, heart attack and possibly stroke. Other conditions that can arise from sleep apnea are; eye problems like glaucoma, complications with medications and surgery, morning headaches, mood swings, memory problems, and nocturia (the need to urinate frequently at night).

Don’t be alarmed if you have found sleep apnea to be a problem for you. This condition affects millions of Americans. Here at Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry it’s our goal to be able to treat every patient that is troubled by this condition. Dr. Holsteen focuses on non-invasive procedures that can solve the condition before suggesting surgery.

The first step in treating sleep apnea is to contact us at 719-598-3502  or send us an email. We’ll schedule a consultation and find a solution for you.
