Sleep Apnea Therapy
There are a number of factors that can disrupt a good night’s sleep, but none as crucial to address as sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a condition that interrupts a patient’s breathing intermittently while asleep, and when not addressed can have life-threatening repercussions.
At TMJ Therapy & Sleep Center of Nevada, Dr. J. Brian Allman and our team specialize in treating sleep apnea in Reno. We offer a full complement of services and appliances that help restore steady breathing and allow you consistent and restful sleep. Call our office today to set up an appointment.
The Effects of Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea results in a variety of minor to serious complications for those who experience it. When the soft tissue in your throat collapses, it blocks the airway, causing loud snoring and shallow breathing. If severe enough, it can halt breathing altogether, leading to an unsafe drop in oxygen levels.
Patients experiencing sleep apnea may not realize the adversity they are facing at first. Sleep apnea is difficult to detect because the symptoms are only on display while asleep, and there isn’t a qualified blood test to diagnose the disorder. Some of the more common side effects of sleep apnea include:
Sore Throat or Dry Mouth
Irritability, Depression, or Mood Swings
The seriousness of the condition requires prompt attention from a medical or dental professional. At our office, we gladly team up with other specialists in the field if it helps provide you comprehensive solutions.
