Sleep Apnea Awareness – Snoring isn’t Sexy
Locally owned Harbor Point Dental Group and our dentist Dr. Frank Cimato, certified in sleep apnea treatment in Stamford, CT, care about the complete well-being of our patients and families not only during visits, but on a daily basis.
Sleep apnea, often undiagnosed, may be noticed by a family member if they notice a pause in breathing that can last for few seconds, or even minutes. Dr. Cimato cares about serving the needs of patients within the Stamford, CT community that are eligible for treatment.
THREE TYPES OF SLEEP APNEA
There are three types of sleep apnea Harbor Point Dental Group wants you to be aware of. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common form and occurs when throat muscles relax. Central sleep apnea occurs when your brain doesn’t send proper signals to the muscles that control breathing. Complex sleep apnea syndrome, also known as treatment-emergent central sleep apnea, occurs when someone has both obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea.
Loud snoring and a drop in your blood oxygen level can occur if the air flow into your lungs is blocked. The timeframe of sleep apnea may impact an individual 30 or more times per hour.
HARBOR POINT DENTAL GROUP WANTS TO HELP YOU WAKE UP ENERGIZED
The usually chronic condition often moves a person from a deep to a light sleep. Harbor Point Dental Group wants to help you stay energized during the day and get a complete night’s rest.
Harbor Point Dental Group wants to help you with sleep apnea before it goes untreated and may increase the possibility of high blood pressure, heart attack or stroke.
