Sleep Apnea - Surprise, AZ
Nobody understands how important a good night sleep is like us here at Surprise Smiles. Our patients depend on us to be well rested and ready to give our all to their smile! When a patient comes in and mentions that they haven’t been sleeping well, we take them seriously.
A common cause of restless nights is known as sleep apnea and is a lot more prevalent than you might think. We have great success in treating sleep apnea and want you to know that there is light at the end of the tunnel!
WHAT IS SLEEP APNEA?
In order to understand why sleep apnea often causes a bad sleep, it is important to understand what it is and how it works. There are two different varieties of sleep apnea; Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and Central sleep apnea (CSA). There is a third variety of sleep apnea that is known as Mixed sleep apnea (MSA) that is simply a combination of OSA and CSA.
YOU MIGHT NOT EVEN NOTICE WAKING AT NIGHT DUE TO SLEEP APNEA
Often, patients won’ even realize that they are waking multiple times at night because they never achieve a fully awake state. Instead, their breathing will stop until they stir from sleep, they will reposition and attempt to continue sleeping. They hover in the twilight stages of sleep, where they are not conscious, but don’t ever see the benefits of deep REM sleep cycles, and so they wake tired.
RISK FACTORS FOR SLEEP APNEA
