How do I know if I have Sleep Apnea?
It may come as a surprise to learn that over 80% of people with mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) have no idea they have it. Some symptoms are obvious such as snoring, mouth breathing, excessive daytime drowsiness and observed breathing pauses or gasps during sleep. But other symptoms may seem unrelated such as awaking and feeling confused, morning headaches, changes in concentration and memory, weight gain, depression and anxiety, and chronic pain and fibromyalgia. OSA is also considered a risk factor for high blood pressure, stroke and heart attack.
You may be interested to learn that Vivos therapy has become a widely used and accepted CPAP alternative. If you’ve tried CPAP and are unable to tolerate it, Vivos may be the right treatment option for you. At Integrative Dental Solutions, Dr Shetty is specially trained in this non-invasive approach to addressing sleep disordered breathing.
