HARBOR POINT DENTAL GROUP IN STAMFORD, CT IS HERE TO HELP
Knowing the symptoms of sleep apnea will help you with identification and treatment during an office visit at Harbor Point Dental Group.
Obstructive sleep apnea, the most common form, is the narrowing of the throat. When awake throat muscles keep the airway stiff so air can flow into the lungs.
KNOW THE SYMPTOMS OF SLEEP APNEA
Harbor Point Dental Group reminds you of these symptoms – waking up with a sore or dry throat, loud snoring, sleepiness, daytime exhaustion, sleepiness while driving, morning headaches, restless sleep, forgetfulness, mood changes, and recurrent awakenings or insomnia.
Sleep apnea does not limit itself to a gender, age or body type. Harbor Point Dental Group provides the following traits to look for. The traits are excess weight, large neck size, older age (40-plus for men, 50-plus for women), being male, a smoker, high blood pressure, and family history.
If oxygen drops to a dangerous level your brain is triggered and sleep is disrupted. Normal breathing resumes often with a loud snort or choking sound.
Harbor Point Dental Group and Dr. Cimato, certified in treating sleep apnea, understand sleep apnea impacts over 25 million adults in the United States, the variety of symptoms, and the importance of providing sleep apnea therapy to the Stamford, CT community.
