What Is OSA?
OSA or Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a chronic medical condition that can affect the quality of life, health and sleep. Hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, injuries associated with work and driving, and stroke can be some of the underlying causes of OSA.
It can significantly affect the quality of life and cause strain to relationships at home or workplace. Treatment is necessary if you or a loved one has OSA or shows signs such as snoring, prolonged daytime sleepiness or breathing delays while sleeping.
What Leads to OSA?
Muscles relax during sleep, including those which control the tongue and throat. At the back of your throat, the soft tissue can sag, narrowing and constricting the airway. You need to consult your physician and ask for a sleep assessment. Once OSA has been determined, and you have a prescription from your doctor, the course of treatment will begin at Leduc Denture Clinic.
