Sleep apnea is a very serious, yet surprisingly common disorder characterized by interrupted breathing while you sleep. If you have sleep apnea, you could stop breathing for a few seconds or minutes, 30 or more times an hour.
Sleep apnea can put you at increased risk of:
- Dementia or Alzheimer’s
- Heart Disease
Fortunately, Dr. Kenneth Weddell at Weddell Dental can work together with his staff in Bloomington, MN to get you a proper diagnosis. If you do have sleep apnea, you may benefit from the treatment options available right here in our office.
