Do you snore while sleeping? Snoring can be frustrating for partners or family members who sleep in close proximity to the snoring person. As frustrating as snoring may be, it can actually be indicative of a more serious problem: sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a condition that is marked by pauses in breathing while sleeping. Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when there are obstructions in the airway, like a collapsed airway or a tongue that rolls back into the throat. Regardless of the cause, untreated sleep apnea can cause a variety of problematic health conditions, such as heart disease and high blood pressure.
It should be noted that although snoring is a common symptom of sleep apnea, not everyone who snores has sleep apnea and not everyone with sleep apnea snores. There are a variety of symptoms and causes of sleep apnea, which is why this condition must be diagnosed by a physician. Our dentist can assist with the process too. Dr. Rafaat utilizes a variety of beneficial products and treatments that can alleviate symptoms of sleep apnea.
