We all know that restful, uninterrupted sleep is important in feeling good and functioning properly during the day. Sleep apnea is a common culprit of daytime drowsiness, sometimes causing a sufferer to momentarily awaken as many as 50 times, or more, per hour!

Let Our Experts Help You Sleep Better

Virginia Sleep Solutions has the expertise to help you get a good night’s rest and feel better. When you visit our office, we’ll examine you and ask you a few questions. If we determine you may have symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea, we’ll arrange for you to complete a convenient in-home sleep study for analysis by our sleep study partner.

If it is determined that you suffer from sleep apnea, we’ll create a custom mouthguard to gently push your lower jaw forward while you sleep. This appliance will help keep your tongue and tissues in the back of your throat from closing off your airway. Symptoms of sleep apnea, along with noisy snoring, will disappear. You’ll sleep better, you’ll feel more rested, and your overall health will begin to improve!

Get the Scoop on How Sleep Apnea Occurs

The soft tissues in the back of your throat, including your tongue, naturally relax during sleep. When these tissues collapse so much that they close off the windpipe, airflow is blocked and sleep apnea – usually along with loud snoring – can occur.

The loss of airflow will cause you to wake up just long enough to restore muscle tone to the tissues in your throat, restoring airflow and proper breathing. For people with severe sleep apnea, this process can repeat at the rate of nearly once a minute, usually leaving no memory of ever waking up! If not treated, sleep apnea can lead to high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, depression, fibromyalgia, weight gain, headaches, hormone imbalances, and more!

Know the Risk Factors Associated With Sleep Apnea Problems

Many factors affect whether an individual will suffer from sleep apnea complications, including:

  • Being overweight
  • Large neck size (17” and over for men, and 16” and over for women)
  • Being over age 40
  • Having a small upper airway
  • Smoking
  • Alcohol use
  • Having a recessed chin, small jaw, or overbite
  • Family medical history
