What Your Oral Surgeon Can Do if You Stop Breathing In Your Sleep
Posted on 5/13/2018 by Doctor Haigney
If you stop breathing in your sleep, this is a serious problem. It is known as sleep apnea. While some might have the issue worse than others, it is important that you seek out the right help.
When you stop breathing in your sleep this is extremely dangerous and it can cause a wide assortment of problems, even death, if it is not addressed and treated.
Sleep Apnea in Patients
Some patients do not even know they have sleep apnea, even some older patients that have suffered with it for years. It is hard to tell that you have something wrong when it comes to breathing and being able to sleep comfortably, since you are asleep when the problem occurs.
When a patient suffers from sleep apnea, one possible treatment is to get a machine that helps you continue to breathe through the night. This machine puts pressure in your airway to help you breathe while you sleep. This can help you feel more rested, plus help alleviate some of the physical problems that come along with sleep apnea.
Another treatment option is having a mouth guard customized to your mouth. What it does is shift the jaw forward so that your airway is more open, allowing you to breathe more easily during the night.
You never want to leave sleep apnea untreated. Speak with someone with the experience and qualifications to run the tests that can diagnose you properly. The only way to diagnose sleep apnea fully is by running a series of tests.
