Sleep Apnea Appliances in Flint, MI
Sleep apnea, a common health disorder often associated with snoring, occurs when your airway is blocked while sleeping. This airway blockage is usually caused by your tongue falling back in the throat. Eventually, the brain will realize it is not receiving enough oxygen and will jolt you awake, causing you to gasp for breath. This occurrence is known as an “apnea” and those who suffer from severe sleep apnea can experience hundreds of apneas every night. If left untreated, sleep apnea can increase your risk for:
- Heart failure
- High blood pressure
