Apnea-Snoring

Apnea-Snoring 

When we sleep well at night, we wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. It is great to begin the day recharged and ready to meet the daily rigors of life enthusiastically. If you struggle in the morning with exhaustion and sluggishness, then you could have sleep apnea. 

Dr. Clara Kwak at CK Dental can help you receive proper care for sleep apnea, so you benefit from a night’s rest that restores and replenishes you. CK Dental serves people in Edmonton and surrounding communities.

Serious Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

There are several signs that could indicate an individual is experiencing sleep apnea. Loud snoring at night, followed by waking up in the morning with a dry mouth, headache, and irritability are symptoms people should not ignore.  This condition compromises people’s daily function, and loud snoring often affects the sleep of our loved ones. 

People with sleep apnea are three times more likely to suffer a stroke and other serious health conditions like:

  • Heart disease
  • Obesity
  • Heart Arrhythmia
  • Depression
  • High Blood Pressure

Causes of Sleep Apnea and Cures from CK Dental

Sleep Apnea has two causes. Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) is when the brain neurologically shuts down and does not communicate with muscles properly. This condition is usually treated with medication.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) results when there is an obstruction of the airways in the throat. This is a physiological problem that may be caused by a small throat, large tonsils, and even obesity. 

Dr. Kwak has helped many patients suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Many who have received sleep aid appliances from other doctors find them uncomfortable or ineffective. Dr. Kwak designs sleep appliances that have helped many people sleep uninterrupted and peacefully.   

Restoring quality to individual’s sleep is very healing to the mind and body. When our sleep cycles reach the deepest levels, we give the brain the nutrition it needs to function optimally.
