Getting a full night’s rest makes a tremendous difference in your daily routine. From doing well at work or in the classroom, to staying alert behind the wheel, a proper amount of sleep is critical to functioning at your best. If you can’t remember the last time you felt refreshed after a full night’s sleep or find yourself experiencing consistent daytime fatigue coupled with symptoms such as irritability, headaches, and difficulty concentrating, there is a chance you may be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the muscles at the back of the throat relax while sleeping, causing a blockage of the airway. With obstructive sleep apnea, you may be snoring or frequently waking up just to gasp for air. As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Kyle Smith is well versed in the complexities of head and neck anatomy and how the airway is affected by the position of oral structures. In situations of mild to moderate sleep apnea, Bellevue sleep apnea treatment may involve an oral appliance. However, if an oral appliance or CPAP is not enough, jaw advancement surgery can be the most effective procedure to alleviate your sleep apnea. Dr. Smith will provide the professional guidance you need to address this condition.
