Sleep Apnea

If you experience headaches, fatigue, or chronic snoring, then you might have a sleep disorder.

What Is Sleep Apnea?

You could be suffering from this disorder and not even know it.

If you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea or think you or a loved one may have it, then our dentist in Olney … Click to go to the page of Dr. Elham Amini … , MD can help.

Dr. Amini guides you to the right diagnosis so that we can treat your sleep disorder and improve your quality of life.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) happens due to the soft palate and tongue collapsing during sleep, in turn, blocking the airway. This causes your breathing to stop multiple times throughout the night, so your body never gets the rest it needs.

The potentially serious sleep disorder may lead to long-term health complications if left untreated and contribute to heart failure, stroke, high blood pressure, and more. It’s important you don’t ignore the signs.
