What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a condition characterized by pauses in breathing or shallow breathing during sleep. These breathing difficulties occur when the soft palate muscles relax and close the airway. Sleep apnea sufferers wake up countless times throughout the night and make snoring, choking, and gasping sounds as they sleep.

This sleeping disorder can cause serious effects like high blood pressure, heart disease, and impaired concentration. Don’t let your future be affected by sleep apnea. Protect yourself with state-of-the-art sleep apnea treatments at Dental Design of Rockland.
