Sleep apnea is a very common but misunderstood condition that can affect a person’s quality of life. Since most of the obvious symptoms exhibit themselves at night, many people who have sleep apnea in La Plata, MD do not realize they have it until their daytime symptoms become more pronounced and severe.
Over time, untreated apnea can lead to overall health problems and chronic drowsiness. Common symptoms of the condition include loud snoring, morning headaches, and excessive and unexplained fatigue. There are two main types of apnea: obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea. The obstructive type is the most common, and occurs when the airway becomes blocked at night, commonly by the tongue. Central sleep apnea is more serious and occurs because the brain fails to send proper breathing signals to the muscles.
Dr. Cieplak has been trained by the Dawson Academy, which gives dental professionals a thorough and complete understanding of sleep apnea and its underlying causes. After evaluating each patient’s unique case and determining the underlying cause of sleep problems, Dr. Cieplak recommends one or more treatments, which may include recommendations for healthy lifestyle changes, oral device fittings or surgery.
Dr. Cieplak encourages patients who frequently wake from snoring and who suspect that they have sleep apnea in La Plata, MD to seek treatment. Consultations can be scheduled by calling Cieplak Dental Excellence at 301-609-9999.
