FAQ

Sleep Apnea Details

What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a condition that affects your breathing as you sleep. It’s characterized by pauses in your breathing that lasts more than 10 seconds. There are three different types of sleep apnea that can get in the way of a good night’s rest.

Obstructive sleep apnea
By far the most common type of sleep apnea, this condition happens when the muscles at the back of your throat relax as you sleep. This causes your soft palate, your tongue, and your tonsils to drop to the back of your throat, blocking your airways.

Because your airways are blocked, you don’t get enough oxygen. Your body briefly wakes you up to reopen your airways, usually so briefly that you don’t remember it. But this awakening still interferes with the quality of your sleep.

Central sleep apnea
This type of sleep apnea is caused by your brain not sending the right signals to keep you breathing. You might wake up feeling like you’re short of breath.

Complex sleep apnea syndrome
If you have both obstructive and central sleep apnea, you’re diagnosed with this syndrome.

What Are The Symptoms Of Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea commonly causes:

  • Fatigue during the day
  • Insomnia
  • Loud snoring
  • Dry mouth or headache when you wake up
  • Irritability

While these symptoms are all annoying to live with, they’re nothing compared to the deeper impacts sleep apnea can have on your body. The recurring oxygen shortage sleep apnea causes is linked to:

  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia)
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Liver problems
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Heart attack

Clearly, getting treatment for sleep apnea in the Alexandria area is critical for both your quality of life and your long-term health.

How Is Sleep Apnea Treated?
Dr. Badri and the team provide non Invasive custom-made sleep appliances for Mild-Moderate obstructive sleep apnea cases or CPAP mask non-compliant patients. At your initial appointment, Dr. Badri will review your sleep study report if you already have one or refer you to a local sleep study center for diagnosis.
 
Once the study is complete, Dr. Badri will review your diagnosis, treatment plan and start the custom sleep appliance fabrication process. The process will include a simple yet accurate impression of both jaws and jaw relationships measurement to design your appliance.
 
Don’t let sleep apnea rob you of your sleep quality or your long-term health. Call Dental Studio at Mark Center or making an appointment online today.
What are the risks if sleep apnea is left untreated?

Untreated sleep apnea can lead to a number of health issues, including high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and depression. It can also lead to poor performance in everyday activities, such as at work and school, and increase the risk of accidents.

Can children have sleep apnea?

Yes, children can also have sleep apnea. While it's more common in adults, children can experience sleep apnea due to enlarged tonsils or adenoids, obesity, or certain medical and neurological conditions. If you're concerned about your child's sleep, we recommend scheduling a consultation at our Alexandria clinic.

How can a dentist help with sleep apnea?

Dentists can play a key role in the treatment of sleep apnea. At Dental Studio At Mark Center, we can provide oral appliance therapy, which involves wearing a custom-fitted oral device while you sleep. This device helps keep your airway open, effectively treating sleep apnea in many cases.
