Obstructive Sleep Apnea(OSA) can be a silent killer. It occurs while you sleep and unaware of the damaging effects it causes on your body. The symptoms include sleepiness during the day, and can lead to serious systemic conditions such as high blood pressure and heart disease. It creates theses problems by disrupting your sleep numerous times throughout the night to force your body awake and breathe in more oxygen that your body can’t provide on its own. Snoring is an extremely common precursor to this condition and could possibly be the best indicator if you have been or will suffer from OSA. Call Dr. Keri Do at Manoa Dental to discuss how she can provide treatment for you.
