The most common form of sleep apnea Maspeth is obstructive sleep apnea. This is when your breathing becomes shallow as you sleep. It can stop entirely. And this shallow or temporarily stopped breathing can happen multiple times per night; perhaps as many as hundreds of times during your sleep cycle. Our sleep apnea treatment is designed to counteract the negative effects of this disorder.
The blockage of your airway can be either partial or complete, but the bottom line is that your body has to work overtime to keep your airway open so that you can breathe. Among the risk factors for developing it are being overweight, African-American, Hispanic, or a Pacific-Islander. Likelihood increases with age, and after menopause for women. Men, however, are twice as prone to developing it. Some of the side-effects that occur as a result of sleep apnea Maspeth are fatigue and unsatisfying sleep. Symptoms that are common include being tired during the day even after having a full night’s sleep, night sweats, difficulties waking up in the morning, headaches, dry mouth or sore throat upon waking, waking up in the middle of the night with a sudden feeling of choking or gasping, and sexual dysfunction. If you have a bed partner, find out if you snore or if you are restless during the night. Those are additional valuable clues to the diagnosis of sleep apnea Maspeth. In order to help keep your airway open, our sleep apnea treatment is an oral appliance. It is both effective, safe, and easy to use. It is also wise to avoid alcohol close to bedtime, give up smoking, and sleep on your side if possible.
If you suffer from sleep apnea or suspect that you may, book an appointment to come in for an examination and consultation.
