Sleep Apnea

In the realm of sleep disorders, one often-overlooked condition takes centre stage – Sleep Apnea. Frequently undiagnosed, this unsettling phenomenon disrupts the tranquillity of sleep, leaving individuals gasping for breath and unaware of the potential risks. Coastal Dental Care, with practices at Banora Point, Burleigh Waters, Kingscliff, Mudgeeraba, Robina Town, Robina Village, and Runaway Bay, stands as a beacon of hope, offering comprehensive treatment plans tailored to reclaim the serenity of a restful night’s sleep.

Definition of Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea, or sleep apnoea, is a silent interruption to breathing during sleep. The telltale signs include snoring, gasping, or choking sounds, creating a symphony of disruption in the stillness of the night.

Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

The repercussions of untreated sleep apnea extend beyond the night, casting a shadow over one’s daily life. Tiredness, headaches, lack of energy, and daytime sleepiness become unwelcome companions, accompanied by dry mouth, sore throat, depression, moodiness, frequent nocturnal urination, and even weight gain.

Types of Sleep Apnea

Diving deeper, sleep apnea reveals its complexity through three distinct types – central sleep apnea (CSA), obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and mixed sleep apnea. OSA, the most prevalent form, stems from airway blockages, creating a battleground for uninterrupted sleep.

Affected Population

Sleep apnea doesn’t discriminate; its reach extends to anyone, but certain factors elevate the risk. Excess weight, smoking, aging, alcohol consumption, and the use of sleeping tablets amplify the likelihood of succumbing to this nocturnal adversary.

Long-Term Consequences

The stakes are high in the untreated realm of sleep apnea. The consequences encompass a spectrum of health risks, including heart disease, high blood pressure, memory loss, depression, and diabetes – a call to action to address this silent disruptor.

Treatment Options

Acknowledging the importance of diagnosis, Coastal Dental Care emphasises a thorough sleep study led by a registered Sleep Physician. Treatment options for mild to moderate OSA include oral appliances (splints) and CPAP machines. Surgical interventions, weight management, lifestyle adjustments, and alterations in sleeping habits present additional avenues to combat this sleep intruder.
