Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea is a growing concern for adults and is known to be a contributing factor in mental illness, depression, high blood pressure, diabetes and much more.

When your airways repeatedly become blocked this then limits the volume of air that gets to your lungs & then causes extremely loud snoring and potentially choking noises.

If you believe you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea you should call your local family dentist in chatswood. This is a serious sleep disorder that prevents you from breathing properly during sleep.

Sleep Apnea is described as a growing concern which involves momentary pauses in breathing during sleep.

Obstructive sleep apnoea is by far the most common our of the three different types however is the most treatable. There are several risks involved with sleep apnea which have contributing risks to large tonsils, obesity and even heart disease.

Below is an illustration of sleep apnea to help highlight the issue.

Sleep Apnea Chatswood Sydney

A large portion of patients suffer from sleep apnea but merely pass it off as poor sleep or something else. A fairly accurate symptom of sleep apnea is consistently snoring loudly if this sounds like you make a visit to the dentist today

People who suffer from this typically snore quite loudly and then go into moments of silence which is when sleep apnea is in full swing.

This process involves the throat muscles to go into a relaxed state which in turn collapses the airway. The result of this limits the air movement and lack of delivery of oxygen through to the brain.

Once this has happened and your body is lacking oxygen your body reacts to this with a sudden burst of adrenaline which increases blood pressure and your heart rate.

This then causes breathing to resume albeit under severe pressure which can sound like choking which again is followed by loud snoring.

Seldom does the affected person wake up during these episodes, however becomes visibly noticeable the following day with the below symptoms

  • Lack of sleep, extremely tired
  • Nodding off when in a relaxed state
  • Trouble with digesting information/learning
  • Depression
  • Chronic headaches

Our dental team is well versed with sleep apnea and the above symptoms are only too common. The lack of oxygen reaching parts of the body has severe impacts on your organs and well being.

You can expect to see adverse impacts on your pancreas, liver, thyroid which can accelerate heart attacks & strokes.

More often than not a partner of a person who suffers from this disease arranges an appointment. Once the appointment has been made our Chatswood dentist will confirm the symptoms and identify the right course of treatment. At times this may involve a referral to a sleep physician.

 My children (ages 5 and 7) and I always enjoy going to Simply Dental. Dr. Gupta is skilled and professional and has given us some great tips on oral hygiene. The office is clean and attractive, and my kids love that they get to watch Netflix while they're getting their teeth cleaned! We highly recommend this practice for children or adults.

 Very friendly dental clinic that is easily accessible. Been coming for regular check ups for 2 years and each time the appointment has been quick and efficient. You never have to wait long and any questions are quickly answered. The equipment seems to be updated quite often which definitely helps get the same clean feeling with a reduced cleaning time.

 Great Dentist and believe me as someone who hates going Sakshi and the team are awesome. She is chatty and technically great. Even puts on Netflix for my 5 yr old to watch. Can't rate her more highly.
