Sleep Apnea Dentist Corvallis, OR
Are you tired all the time even though you think you’re getting enough sleep? Does your loud snoring keep your partner awake? Do you wake up during the night gasping for breath? If so, you might be one of the many people who suffer from sleep apnea in Corvallis.
At Timberhill Dental, we can help you overcome sleep apnea and get the restful, rejuvenating sleep you need.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a condition that causes your breathing to stop while you sleep– often as frequently as 30 times each hour. These brief periods of apnea signal the brain to wake you up to restart your breathing. Sleep apnea experts at our Corvallis office can help assess your risk and plan your treatment.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) results when the soft tissue in the back of the throat collapses, closing off your airway.
Central Sleep Apnea
Central sleep apnea (CSA) is caused by misfiring signals from the brain. Your muscles aren’t being told to breath.
Complex Sleep Apnea
Complex sleep apnea is a combination with both obstructive and central causes.
