Sleep apnea occurs when an individual stops breathing for several seconds — and in some cases minutes while sleeping. This occurrence is commonly referred to as an “apneic event.”The most common form of the disorder is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA ) in which the airways are obstructed or collapsed, making it difficult if not impossible to breathe properly.
Sleep apnea is a chronic and progressive health problem that will potentially worsen over time. If left untreated, it can cause serious long term health issues including:
For children and adolescents, untreated sleep apnea can also be responsible for poor performance in everyday activities such as school and even sports.
For those diagnosed with sleep apnea, the first line of treatment typically recommended is a CPAP machine. However, studies reveal that many patients don’t use their CPAP long term with only 42% still using their machines after five years. In large part, this is due to the inconvenience and awkwardness of sleeping and traveling with a CPAP machine and mask every night. In addition, a CPAP machine requires high maintenance such as everyday cleaning and distilled water during use.
At NYC Sleep Well, our experienced team of sleep specialists, orthodontist, pediatric dentists, oral surgeon, and ENTs will develop a custom plan based on your condition along with your lifestyle and personal preferences.
