At Midtown Dental Centre, we work hard to help our patients sleep better when they use our dental appliance to fight sleep apnea. This sleeping disorder manifests when you repeatedly stop or start breathing while asleep.
To understand better, here are the different types of sleep apnea disorders:
- Obstructive sleep apnea is a common form that happens when the patient’s muscles in the throat intermittently relax during sleep.
- Central sleep apnea occurs when the patient’s brain lacks oxygen; hence, it fails to send out signals to the muscles that regulate his breathing.
- Complex sleep apnea occurs to a patient whose airways are tight due to extra tissues in his throat.
Patients who suffer from this sleeping disorder never get long hours of sleep and they wake up not feeling well rested. In effect, they may feel tired during the day.
Everyone in your family deserves to have a good night sleep. Contact us today at (416) 966-3368 and we’re happy to help you have a deep slumber.
