Airway and sleep apnea are conditions in which your breathing is continuously stopped throughout your sleep. The most common form of airway and sleep apnea is obtrusive sleep apnea– where your throat muscles intermittently relax and block your airway during your sleep. Has your partner ever mentioned that you frequently snore when you sleep? That could be a sign that you have sleep apnea. A potentially very serious condition, come on into Seaport Smiles to see what we can do for you!
Why is Treatment Needed?
Airway and sleep apnea can potentially be very serious conditions. Aside from keeping you from getting a good night’s rest, it can increase your risk for high blood pressure and heart problems. The most definitive way to correct airway and sleep apnea conditions is through a procedure called Orthognathic Surgery. The surgery positions your jaw into better alignment, allowing for a better flow of oxygen during sleep.
