Sleep Apnea Treatment
Wilmette, Illinois Snoring Relief
Dr. Dino Mantis treats snoring and sleep apnea in Wilmette Illinois and Chicago’s North Shore area including Evanston, Winnetka and KenilworthPeople who generally get adequate sleep, but feel tired or sleepy during the day may suffer from sleep apnea. Sleep apnea occurs when you have pauses during your breathing as you sleep. The brain has to shift the body from deep sleep into light sleep to start the breathing again, so the result is poor quality of sleep.
Although sleep apnea affects roughly twelve million Americans, most people with sleep apnea don’t know that they have it. Usually a sleeping partner is the first to catch the signs associated with the disorder. While loud snoring is a typical symptom, someone with sleep apnea may also have sudden outbursts that sound like gasps. These sounds occur after a breathing pause, which may last for seconds or minutes. Generally, someone with the disorder suffers from interrupted sleep three or more nights a week. Those sleeping around them also suffer from interrupted sleep due to the loud snoring.
Dentists like North Shore dentist Dr. Dino Mantis can help people suffering from this common disorder. Obstruction of the airway is the most common cause of sleep apnea. According to the needs of the patient, Dr. Mantis may recommend a dental sleep appliance to prevent the airway from being obstructed during sleep.
