Do you often find yourself feeling tired, irritable, or moody during the day? Does your sleep partner complain of loud snoring during the night? If so, you may have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea affects over 18 million Americans and can have serious health consequences. This condition can make existing high blood pressure problems worse—but sleep apnea treatment may actually reduce the need for blood pressure medications. People who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea are at a higher risk for heart attacks, which could be due to stress or lack of oxygen during sleep. Take a look at this infographic from Smiles@Southcenter, a dentist in Renton, to learn more about sleep apnea and how it can affect your health, and you’ll see why seeking treatment from your dentist is a wise idea.
