Obstructive Sleep Apnea

OSA is caused by a partial or complete blockage of the upper airway, which occurs during sleep. People with untreated OSA frequently stop breathing while sleeping – sometimes hundreds of times a night – and often for a minute or more. OSA has been linked to a range of serious medical conditions, from hypertension and cardiovascular disease to Attention Deficit Disorder. Because dentists see patients regularly and often treat an entire family, we’re in a unique position to help diagnose OSA.
