Sleep Apnea and Sleep Deprivation
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that causes the sufferer to wake repeatedly throughout the night due to frequent pauses in breathing. Sleep apnea is accompanied by loud snoring and sometimes choking noises, so it can keep your bed partner from sleeping, too. When you become sleep deprived, you have to worry about issues like:
Impaired Attention | Sleep deprivation will make it difficult to concentrate in your daily life. Being creative and productive can become difficult. Even things like being a safe driver and making basic decisions can be hindered by sleep apnea.
Serious Health Problems | Eventually, lack of sleep can lead to serious health issues, like heart disease, heart attack, high blood pressure, stroke, weight gain, and diabetes.
Forgetfulness | Prepare for missing keys and forgotten birthdays. When you are unable to sleep because of sleep apnea, you may find it hard to keep your memory sharp.
You don’t have to keep worrying about you or your loved ones being unable to concentrate at work or on the road. At Cyprus Family Dental, we offer successful sleep apnea treatments to our patients who suffer from sleep apnea.
