Understanding Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by interrupted breathing during sleep. There are three primary types:

  1. Sleep Apnea: This is the most common form, caused by the relaxation of throat muscles, leading to airway blockages.
  2. Central Sleep Apnea: A rarer form where the brain fails to signal the breathing muscles, resulting in temporary cessation of breathing.
  3. Complex Sleep Apnea Syndrome: Also known as treatment-emergent central sleep apnea, occurs when both obstructive and central sleep apnea are present.

It's important to note that not everyone who snores has sleep apnea. The condition can be triggered by factors such as excess weight, alcohol consumption, drug use, and genetics. According to the Sleep Foundation, sleep apnea is a prevalent sleep disorder in the United States and Canada, affecting individuals of all ages and genders.

Diagnosing and Treating Sleep Apnea

To determine if you have sleep apnea, a diagnostic test called a polysomnogram, or sleep study, may be necessary. At Copperfield Dental, we offer the convenience of at-home sleep studies. During a sleep study, various parameters are monitored, including brain activity, breathing, oxygen levels, and sleep stages. Specialists analyze the collected data to diagnose sleep disorders and recommend suitable treatments.

Our team specializes in sleep medicine, enabling us to provide comprehensive care. If oral appliance therapy is recommended, we can customize a sleep apnea oral appliance for you, ensuring optimal comfort and effectiveness.

Common Symptoms and Risk Factors

Some common signs of sleep apnea include:

  • Intense and persistent snoring
