Sleep Apnea Appliances
Are you looking for a sleep apnea specialist? Are you or your partner struggling to get a good, full night's rest because of your snoring or restlessness? Seaver & Pittman offers a sleep apnea treatment that can help you and those around you!
Sleep apnea, or obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a potentially life-threatening medical disorder that causes your body to stop breathing during sleep. The muscles in your throat start to relax and your tongue may fall back and block the airways as you sleep. This reduces the amount of oxygen delivered to all of your organs, including your heart and brain.
To recognize if you or someone you know is suffering from sleep apnea, the most common symptom that people suffer from is loud snoring. You may also stop breathing for short periods of time. If your breathing pauses from sleep, your body will briefly wake up, but you'll remain unaware. This can happen throughout the entire night, every night, and you may wake up feeling unrefreshed because there hasn't been enough oxygen reaching your brain.
In addition to the snoring and exhaustion, sleep apnea also has the ability to cause memory loss, morning headaches, depression, irritability, and concentration issues. If left untreated, sleep apnea can cause a number of overall health issues, including stroke, heart attack, or worse!
Seaver & Pittman offers sleep apnea appliances for patients who are suffering from sleep apnea or sleep-related breathing issues. This appliance is typically worn when you're sleeping to help control your breathing patterns throughout the night.
