Frequently Asked Questions

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is a condition that causes pauses in breathing during sleep. These pauses can last for a few seconds or even minutes, and they can happen multiple times throughout the night. Sleep apnea can lead to daytime tiredness, difficulty concentrating, and other health problems. Symptoms can also include snoring, gasping for air during sleep, and waking up with a headache or dry mouth. If you think you may have sleep apnea, it is important to see your doctor for a diagnosis.

What are the risk factors for sleep apnea?

A few of the main risk factors for sleep apnea include being overweight, having a family history of the condition, smoking, and drinking alcohol. Sleep apnea is also more common in men than women, and it becomes more likely as we get older. Left unattended, sleep apnea can lead to a number of serious health problems, such as heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure.

What are the different types of sleep apnea?

There are three main types of sleep apnea: obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea, and mixed sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common type, and it is caused by a blockage in the airway. Central sleep apnea is caused by a problem with the brain signals that control breathing. Mixed sleep apnea is a combination of both obstructive and central sleep apnea. They can each be treated differently, so it is important to see your doctor for a diagnosis.

How is sleep apnea treated?

There are a number of different treatments for sleep apnea, and the best treatment will depend on the type of sleep apnea you have. Whilst some of the long-term options include lifestyle changes, such as losing weight or quitting smoking; other solutions may include using a night guard, SomnoDent oral device therapy or a breathing device (CPAP).
