Sleep Apnea Therapy Airdrie

Sleep Easy Thanks to Sierra Dental

Sleep is a critical time for the body to rest and repair and without it the body can become host to a series of physical and psychological ailments. It is a necessary ingredient for a healthy vital life, but studies show that 10% of the population is suffering from sleep deprivation due to sleep apnea. If you feel more tired than you would like, you should not have to suffer through the day. Perhaps sleep apnea is affecting you.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep Apnea TherapyOften perceived as “just snoring”, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can occur if you have an overly relaxed tongue or throat muscles, enlarged tonsils or a small mouth/jaw that leaves no room for your tongue. The consequence is a blocked airway while you sleep, causing oxygen deprivation. Being overweight, drinking alcohol or taking sleep medication may also contribute. Those suffering with OSA can struggle with:

  • Snoring
  • Irritability
  • Narrow maxilla
  • Enlarged tonsils/adenoids
  • Difficulty staying focused on tasks
  • Excessive tiredness even after a long sleep
  • Hyperactivity
  • Mouth Breathing
  • Dark circles or constantly puffy eyes
