Well-respected dentists Drs. Steven White and Brad Haines, founders of White and Haines Advanced Dentistry, are opening their doors to people who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea and who live in the local area. Through advancements in dentistry and high-tech treatments, both dentists can help patients combat sleep apnea related problems like snoring in Mooresville, NC.
Sleep apnea, also known as obstructive sleep apnea or OSA, affects approximately 22 million people in America per figures culled by the American Sleep Apnea Association. The condition occurs when the airways are blocked during sleep, causing the sufferer to choke or gag while at rest. These episodes occur regularly throughout the night, interfering with the natural sleep cycle and causing other systemic problems over time such as greater likelihood of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Snoring is one of the most noted signs of sleep apnea, as it is obvious and may awaken sleeping partners as well as the sufferer himself or herself. Other common symptoms of sleep apnea include waking up in the morning feeling unrested despite getting many hours of sleep, feeling a scratchy throat or headaches in the morning and awakening at night with a feeling of suffocating.
Without intervention, sleep apnea can lead to dangerous daytime waking problems. People who do not take action to solve their sleep apnea problems may be at risk of falling asleep while driving or operating heavy machinery. Additionally, some sleep apnea patients have reported memory loss and inability to concentrate for even short periods.
