Sleep Apnea & Snoring Treatment in San Jose, CA
We'll Help You Get A Full & Restful Night's Sleep
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a surprisingly common condition with symptoms including loss of sleep, loud snoring and bad headaches. According to Dr. Heidari, the single most common cause of sleep apnea is a narrowing of your airways as you sleep, which limits the supply of oxygen to the brain. This happens because the muscles that control the tongue start to relax, which makes the tongue fall into the back of the throat and block your breathing.
People who suffer from sleep apnea may also arise from their REM sleep without actually completely waking up, giving them the illusion that they enjoyed a full night of sleep but not giving them any of its actual benefits. Many individuals will find themselves confused as to why they wake up in the morning still feeling completely exhausted.

However, please note that occasional visits to Dr. Heidari might be necessary to adjust your equipment as needed.
