This is the most common form of sleep apnea and occurs when the muscles in the back of the throat relax and block the airways. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can be hazardous to your health since you are suffering the effects of not breathing properly while you sleep. You may wake up with headaches, always feel like you have not had a good night’s sleep, or find it difficult to stay awake and alert all day. Dr. Vivek Amin and Dr. Tamara Strouth can help patients with sleep apnea so that sufferers can restore their health.
Sleep apnea is a medical condition that can last for several years or become a lifelong problem without appropriate treatment. If you have not yet received a medical diagnosis for sleep apnea but are noticing any of these symptoms, it may be time to talk to a specialist:
I primarily see Dr. Strouth, she has a gift for dentistry. She’s an artist, she’s scientific and she has the best motor skill of anybody I’ve ever known. I’ve never had anyone even close in terms of their competence and their ability to do things. I would drive a long way to come here and keep getting my dental work done. I would definitely recommend Dr. Strouth, Dr. Amin, and the whole team. This is a wonderful practice, they treat you very courteously and they’re extremely competent.
If left untreated, sleep apnea can cause a number of health problems including increasing your risk of heart failure and stroke. Many patients with this condition have high blood pressure and you may experience an ongoing state of fatigue that makes it difficult to concentrate at work. Sleep deprivation can increase the risk of driving accidents and also affect your mood and well-being.
