Causes of Sleep Apnea

The causes of sleep apnea vary by individual and the type of sleep apnea from which a person suffers.

If you or a loved one suffers from chronic snoring or other symptoms of sleep apnea, New Jersey sleep dentist Dr. Patti Swaintek-Lamb can diagnose the source of your sleep disorder and recommend a treatment customized to your unique condition.

There are three forms of sleep apnea:

Central sleep apnea is caused by a failure of your brain to transmit the signals necessary to trigger regular breathing. Central sleep apnea is often the result of another medical condition, such as heart disease or a stroke.

Complex sleep apnea is caused by both an airway obstruction and a disruption of your regular breathing pattern.

In any form, sleep apnea is a dangerous problem that can contribute to more severe health complications. Fortunately, there are a number of treatment options available, including comfortable and effective oral appliances.

If you would like to learn more about sleep apnea diagnosis and treatment, please contact Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville to schedule your personal consultation with sleep dentist Dr. Patti Swaintek-Lamb. We welcome patients from the Bernardsville and Morristown, New Jersey, areas.
