Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a serious condition!

Do you suffer from OSA?

It has been linked to excessive tiredness, depression and reduced resistance to infection. When left untreated obstructive sleep apnea can increase the risk of heart attack, hypertension, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, catching colds and even death. It can have a significant impact on quality of life, placing unnecessary strain on relationships between bed partners, family and the work place.

If you have obstructive sleep apnea or display symptoms of OSA such as loud snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, fatigue and witnessed apneas, it is essential that you seek the right treatment option. At Chow Dental Group, we offer the Somnodent sleep appliance to help you regain your quality of life.

Doses Snoring causes OSA?

Loud snoring may be a sign of a more serious problem—OSA. This is where the airway becomes completely blocked and breathing stops. The brain then detects the lack of oxygen and prompts a momentary arousal to draw breath. Although OSA sufferers may experience hundreds of apnea episodes per night, they are unlikely to remember any of them. In fact, if the sufferer lives alone or sleeps separately, they may not be aware of their condition, even after many years.
