Although individual cases vary, sleep apnea often leads to snoring and restless nights. This discomfort is often a result of airway obstructions during your sleep cycle. As your muscles relax, your tongue may cover your throat resulting in snoring.
Mild symptoms, such as snoring, are common and still allow for air to pass through the obstacle. These mild symptoms are considered severe when they block your airways and cause inconsistent breathing. Snoring is often a precursor to Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea causes several pauses in breathing during sleep patterns. Ranging from 10-second pauses to more than a minute, if left untreated, this condition can lead to many other health issues. There are severe cases of sleep apnea where inconsistencies in breathing can occur more than one-hundred times each night.
Sleep deprivation is not the only concern for our patients (although it is an important and well-founded concern). You may experience dry mouth, heart problems, neurological problems, and other serious medical issues.
