Snoring & Sleep Apnea Doctor Serving West Orange, Short Hills & Livingston, New Jersey
Have you been told that your excessive, loud snoring might wake up the neighbors? Do you often awake from a full night’s sleep feeling exhausted, irritable or with less energy than you had before you went to bed the previous night?
If you: feel exhausted or irritable each morning, frequently wake up with a dry or sore throat, suffer from headaches or experience uncontrollable bouts of sleepiness during the day, you are not alone. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, nearly a third of Americans suffer from sleep disorders characterized by excessive snoring. Of these sleep disorders, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is one of the most common.
What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a condition in which tissue in the back of the throat collapses during sleep, blocking the airway. When this happens, the flow of oxygen is obstructed. Those with sleep apnea temporarily stop breathing while they are sleeping — until they wake up gasping for air. Bouts of OSA can literally occur hundreds of times each night, so individuals with sleep apnea often wake up each morning feeling exhausted, even if they have been in bed for eight or more hours.
The consequences of suffering from chronic sleep apnea range from feeling run down or irritable to more dangerous effects such as falling asleep while driving. Individuals suffering from sleep apnea also have an increased risk of certain diseases including stroke, cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular conditions such as heart attack.
If left untreated, sleep apnea can be extremely serious. Thankfully, New Jersey sleep apnea dentist Dr. Ivan F. Stein is an OSA specialist, with extensive experience treating the potentially dangerous condition.
