Could I Have Sleep Apnea?

Have you been told your snoring is loud and disruptive? Do you wake up feeling like you’re gasping for air? Do you constantly wake yourself up with a choking sensation? These are very common signs of having obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is a chronic condition that occurs when your muscles relax during sleep, causing the soft tissue to collapse and block your airway. This causes you to stop breathing hundreds of times a night, followed by brief awakenings that disturb your sleep.

Treating sleep apnea is extremely important if you want to lead a healthy lifestyle. It can oftentimes be a threat to your safety, as it increases your risk of drowsiness while driving or operating machinery. It can also raise your risk for serious health problems, including:

Side Effects From Sleep Apnea

  • Brain fog
  • Strokes
  • Low blood oxygen level
  • Obesity
  • Impotence
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Congestive heart failure
  • High blood pressure

I couldn't love Paradise Dental more! High tech, new facility with super friendly staff. Cindy is my hygienist and she is just awesome. Also, there hours are perfect for people who work full time! My appointment was at 7pm last night! Who loves their dentist???? This girl

First Class Facility. Modern equipment. Professional service. This is what I have come to expect from Drs' Steve and Helyne and their entire staff.

It's the fanciest dentist I have ever been to. I really like the moisturizing heated hand treatment they offer while you're getting your teeth cleaned. They have lots of other little extras that make this place stand out above the rest. The cleaning and exam were pretty typical, but no complaints. I'm always wary of getting advice to replace fillings when they aren't bothering me, but that didn't happen.

Great experience as always!!! State of the art office with a friendly and professional staff. I would not trust any other practice with my dental care.

My first visit consisted of a consultation with Dr, Helyne Hamelburg whom I found to be very calm and relaxing as I am not a fan of any dental procedure. I will be having gum surgery in a few weeks and am actually not fearing the procedure which I have been putting off for years. Office is certainly state of the art which I had never experienced anything like it. Glad she was recommended to me by another Doctor who knew she would be a good fit for me.

The providers, hygienists, the entire staff are wonderful. I can't recommend them enough. They are efficient, courteous, and the office is inviting. I never thought I would say this about a dental office, but I get relaxed there. You get treated like your the only patient they have.
