Your snoring could be ruining your health

Your Redmond Sleep Apnea dentists want to help you (and your partner) to get a great night of sleep.

Sleep Apnea has a Serious effect on your whole body health


Understanding Sleep Apnea:

1. During a sleep apnea episode, your breathing stops. Due to this halt in airflow, your blood oxygen levels can drop to unsafe amounts.

2. Your brain will force your body to start breathing again - usually through a gasping or choking breath.

The gasping/choking noises in addition to snoring can be the biggest sign of Sleep Apnea.

3. As this cycle repeats itself, disrupting your sleep again and again throughout the night, your body doesn't get an effective night of sleep, which results in excessive tiredness throughout the day as well as headaches and many medical problems.

This can occur hundreds of times each night!

You might also be harming the health of others by disrupting their sleep with your snoring and gasping.

Depending on the type of sleep apnea you have, you might not remember these awakenings. Most of the time, you’ll stir just enough to tighten your throat muscles and open your windpipe.
