Airway Restrictions – A Real Epidemic
Sleep disorders and sleep apnea has become a greater and more significant health issue in America. According to sleepapnea.org, 22 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea and 80% of the cases haven’t even been diagnosed yet.
We want to help! Sleep apnea can have significant health implications, especially when left untreated. Here at Paramount Dental Center, we want to help you discover solutions to remedy this frustrating and serious problem. It will benefit you and the one sleeping next to you, every night.
The airVata™ is a perfect for those who clench, grind, have jaw pain and want snoring reduction.
It is a combination day appliance and nighttime appliance used to treat jaw clicking, jaw locking, jaw pain, muscle pain, fatigue, fragmented sleep and overall better performance in work, play and sleep.
Complications of Untreated
A good night’s sleep is the time our body needs to regenerate and heal from the processes of each day. When sleep apnea robs our bodies of this time to recover, some serious medical conditions can arise, and this is one reason why we’ve integrated wellness into our dentistry. Your wellness, as well as your oral health, is important to us. According to the Mayo Clinic complications from sleep apnea may include the following:
Repeated awaking at night from sleep apnea makes restorative sleep impossible. Without this healing sleep time, you’re likely to have fatigue, irritability, and daytime drowsiness.
High Blood Pressure or Heart Problems
When your airway is restricted, your blood oxygen levels suddenly drop. This increases blood pressure and strains your cardiovascular system, which leads to an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and abnormal heartbeating.
Type 2 Diabetes
Sleep apnea increases your risk of developing Insulin Resistance and Type 2 Diabetes.
Studies have shown that people with sleep apnea are more likely to show signs of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
Symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome include high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels, high blood sugar and an increased waist circumference which is linked to a higher risk of heart disease.
Noone likes to sleep next to a loud snoring partner because it also prevents them from healthy restorative sleep. Your sleep apnea complications are also applied to the partner you’re keeping up at night.
