Snoring and Sleep Apnoea
Sleep-disordered breathing ranges from frequent snoring to a more serious type of snoring that can stop breathing as the airway becomes blocked. This is called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). Large number of sufferers of sleep apnoea do not know they have it as it only occurs during sleep.
Untreated OSA can lead to:
High blood pressure and stroke
Coronary artery disease
Motor vehicle and workplace accidents
If you suspect that you have OSA you need to consult with your doctor and you may need a sleep study done.
If diagnosed with OSA one of our dentists at Mildura Family Dental will be able to discuss and provide a treatment device for you.
