Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Do you snore loudly and sometimes wake up in the middle of the night gasping or choking? Do you feel exhausted in the morning despite getting eight hours of sleep? See your doctor right away—you may have obstructive sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea is a condition that causes a person to stop breathing several times during sleep. If breathing stops multiple times during one sleep period, your brain and body are deprived of oxygen.

Sleep Apnea is a potentially-life threatening sleep disorder. Get help today at Spearmint Dental.
