Sleep apnea and nightly snoring is more than just an annoyance for your sleep partner, it could amount to a number of serious system health risk. Since sleep apnea occurs as a result of a reoccurring respiratory obstruction, it means there is a lack of oxygen entering the body and subsequently feeding into the circulatory system.
When this happens, a number of serious health conditions can occur or worsen, including:
- High Blood Pressure
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Daily Fatigue and Drowsiness
- Liver Problems
If you suspect you or someone you care about may have sleep apnea, please contact us here at Cadena Dentistry for more information on how to protect your health.
