Sleep Disordered Breathing in Davidson, NC

Sleep Disordered Breathing

Do you snore, have problems sleeping, or keep your partner up at night? If you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), you have probably noticed changes in your mood, behavior, and energy levels due to disrupted sleep.

Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) presents in a range of ways, from snoring to obstructive sleep apnea, which is small pauses in breathing during sleep. Sleep breathing disorders can have many negative effects on our oral and overall health. For example, SDB is associated with a 50% increase in adverse neurobehavioral outcomes, according to Dr. Karen Bonuck. In addition to cognitive and behavioral effects, poor sleep caused by SDB negatively impacts your immune system may lead to diseases such as dementia and lead to reproductive issues.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Patients with OSA have an obstruction in the airway. In 98% of patients, OSA is caused by abnormal anatomical features of the soft tissues and/or the maxillomandibular skeleton that cause disproportionate anatomy of the airway.
