Sleep Apnea in Chicago: What is It?

Posted on December 3rd, 2018 by

If you suffer from sleep apnea in Chicago, know that you aren’t alone! Sleep apnea should be taken seriously, as it can have serious effects and complications to the individual who is suffering. Signs that you have sleep apnea include being tired after having a full night of sleep as well as often snoring loudly. This disorder includes the starting and stopping of breathing involuntarily during sleep.

Main Types of Sleep Apnea

There are three main types of sleep apnea, including obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea, and complex sleep apnea syndrome. Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when your throat muscles relax. Central sleep apnea occurs when your brain doesn’t send the proper signals to your brain to control breathing. Finally, complex sleep apnea syndrome is a combination of both obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea.
If your sleep apnea isn’t treated, it can lead to further complications such as erectile dysfunction, stroke, diabetes, chronic acid reflux, and, in some cases, even death. It is important to seek treatment as soon as you think you may have it before complications arise.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
