What are the Affects of Sleep Apnea?
IF LEFT UNTREATED, SLEEP APNEA CAN RESULT IN A GROWING NUMBER OF HEALTH PROBLEMS, INCLUDING:
- High blood pressure
- Heart failure, irregular heartbeats, and heart attacks
- Worsening of ADHD
In addition, untreated sleep apnea may be responsible for poor performance in everyday activities, such as at work and school, motor vehicle crashes, and academic underachievement in children and adolescents.
HOW DO WE TREAT SLEEP APNEA?
Dr. Bauter treats sleep apnea and snoring with a dental appliance that hold the jaw forward during sleeping to prevent the tongue and soft tissues from collapsing into the airway. Dr Bauter can make minor adjustments to the appliance to make it more effective and more comfortable. This is a great alternative treatment to the CPAP machine in treating Sleep Apnea and snoring.
