Do you suffer from sleep apnea? Have you tried new treatments to treat sleep apnea but still suffer? Our team here at Aspire Surgical can assist you with a wide assortment of alternative treatments for sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea occurs when there are interruptions with your breathing patterns while you sleep. Although it is a common sleep disorder, it can have severe consequences including heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and death. Common symptoms of sleep apnea include heavy snoring, difficulty sleeping, personality changes, severe tiredness when awake, and morning headaches.

You may be at an increased risk for sleep apnea if the following applies to you:

– Men are at an increased risk for sleep apnea, especially men over the age of 40.
– If you have a deviated septum or any form of nasal blockage or obstruction, you may be at an increased risk for sleep apnea.
– Common risks for sleep apnea include large tonsils, a small jaw, an abnormally large tongue, or allergies and sinus problems.
– You could be at a greater risk for sleep apnea if you have a family history of the disorder.
