Sleep Apnea Treatment

Chicago Family Dentists

Sleep apnea is a serious condition that causes a person to stop breathing during sleep. In some cases, you may stop breathing hundreds of times in one sleep cycle. If you think you may have sleep apnea, contact Smile Design Studio of Hyde Park for a consultation.

Sleep apnea may be caused by genetics, poor posture, allergies, enlarged tonsils, and other issues. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common form of sleep apnea. This is caused by airways in the throat and mouth collapsing during sleep. If you have obstructive sleep apnea you or your partner may notice:

  • Extended pauses in breathing during sleep
  • Loud snoring
  • Restless sleep
  • Serious daytime sleepiness
  • Irritability or personality change
  • Poor memory or concentration
  • Headaches
  • Weight gain
  • Depression

If left untreated, sleep apnea increases risks of:

  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Stroke
  • Obesity
  • Other serious health complications

If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, contact Smile Design Studio of Hyde Park for a consultation. Chicago dentist, Dr. Kaufman, can provide you with effective treatment options to improve your sleep and your health.
