Sleep apnea can have serious health consequences, including daytime fatigue, high blood pressure and an increased risk of heart disease. Many individuals suffering from sleep apnea are unaware of its presence, making early detection and treatment crucial. At Leesburg Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we recognize the pivotal role dentists can play in the management of sleep apnea through oral appliance therapy, providing a non-invasive, effective solution.
Why is Sleep Apnea Treatment Important?
Sleep apnea treatment is vital because it addresses a condition that disrupts the natural sleep cycle, leading to fragmented sleep and oxygen deprivation. Untreated sleep apnea can contribute to various health issues, including:
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
- Cardiovascular problems
- Cognitive impairment
- Mood disturbances
- Increased risk of accidents due to impaired alertness
