Is your restful night’s sleep lacking because sleep apnea is keeping you awake? You might not even realize it is happening since it is difficult to remember things that happen during sleep. To get an accurate assessment, we invite you to visit our office for a thorough examination. Typically, men over the age of 40 are often at the highest risk for sleep apnea.
If you are unfamiliar with sleep apnea, it is a sleep disorder caused by lack of oxygen in the lungs. This can arise from obstructed airways, also known as obstructive sleep apnea. It can also arise when failed signals from the brain don’t reach their mark in the chest muscles to tell them to breathe. This is known as central sleep apnea. Both of these conditions are serious and should be dealt with as soon as possible.
So what are some of the common causes of sleep apnea? A variety of causes can include the following: allergies, sinus problems, a family history of the disorder, genetics, nasal blockages, a deviated septum, breathing obstructions, large tonsils, a large tongue, or a small jaw in relation to your face.
