Sleep Apnea

Understanding Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder where breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. This disruption can lead to poor sleep quality and various health issues, including cardiovascular problems, daytime fatigue, and more. Thrive Dental & Orthodontics is dedicated to diagnosing and treating sleep apnea to help you achieve better sleep and improved overall health.

Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

Common symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring, episodes of stopped breathing during sleep, gasping for air during sleep, morning headaches, difficulty staying asleep (insomnia), excessive daytime sleepiness (hypersomnia), and difficulty paying attention while awake.

About Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder where breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep, leading to poor sleep quality and health issues. Thrive Dental & Orthodontics offers comprehensive diagnosis and treatment to improve your sleep and overall well-being.


Sleep apnea can be caused by obesity, narrow airway, family history, smoking, chronic nasal congestion, and conditions like diabetes and hypertension. Understanding these causes helps in creating effective treatment plans.


Diagnosing sleep apnea involves reviewing your medical history, conducting a physical examination, and using advanced tools like home sleep tests or polysomnography. Accurate diagnosis is essential for effective treatment.


Treatment options include lifestyle changes, CPAP therapy, custom oral appliances, and surgical interventions. At Thrive Dental & Orthodontics, we tailor treatments to your specific needs for optimal results.
