The treatment of Sleep Apnea is widely growing. We are beginning to learn that there is a direct correlation between airway, facial and oral posture, and development from childhood. Did you know that about 80-percent of heart attack and stroke victims also suffer from sleep apnea (some diagnosed and others undiagnosed). Those are high statistics. Think about it: if you are not getting the appropriate amount of oxygen, you stress out other systems in your body including your heart.
As an adult with sleep apnea, you may be sleeping with what is called a C-PAP machine that forces oxygen into the lungs so you don’t stop breathing. There are different methods to treating adults including oral posturing appliances to surgery. Discuss your options with Dr. Weigand today.
