Get the Sleep That You Deserve
A serious sleep disorder that occurs when airways are restricted during sleep, millions of Americans suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). If you wake up suddenly in the middle of the night, snore excessively, or get up in the morning still feeling tired, you may have OSA as well.
Luckily, Dr. Alborzi and the Alborzi Orthodontics team offer a variety of sleep apnea treatments, so you can get the rest that you deserve.
What Is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a serious sleep disorder that occurs when your breathing is interrupted during sleep.
If you have sleep apnea, you may experience pauses in breathing while you sleep; once your brain registers the resulting elevated levels of carbon dioxide, you wake up enough to resume breathing normally.
As a result, your and the rest of your body may not be getting enough oxygen overnight, and the sleep that you do get is fragmented and disrupted.
People with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep – sometimes hundreds of times. You may wake up choking and gasping for air during the night, leaving you tired from a less restful sleep cycle.
As a result, you may be unfocused during the day, feeling agitated, irritable, and likely to fall asleep during routine activities like reading or watching TV.
Sleep apnea can affect anyone at any age, even children. Risk factors include age, weight, family history, or allergies, and sinus problems.
Ditch the CPAP Machine With Alborzi Orthodontics
If you have already been diagnosed with sleep apnea, you may be living with the pain of a CPAP machine. The noisy machine probably keeps you and anyone else in the room awake, causing the same problem that it is supposed to solve.
Aside from the noise, using a CPAP machine means you are restricted to sleeping within a close range of the noisy machine with an uncomfortable mask strapped your face.
For many patients suffering from sleep apnea, this is simply not a workable solution!
Dr. Alborzi and her team will work with you and your physician to discover and treat the underlying reasons for your sleep apnea, so you can sleep naturally and deeply without a CPAP machine.
