Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) has emerged as one of the most widespread and costly health issues for adults and children in the U.S.A. Studies have shown that OSA carries a strong genetic component and is known to involve more than 8 million Americans of all ages. This condition is characterized as the obstruction of the upper airway associated with repeated gaps in breathing; therefore interrupting sleep and contributing to many side effects and various medical conditions; such as:

  • Obesity/ Diabetes
  • Concentration
  • Stroke/ Heart Attack
  • Fatigue and or Insomnia

If you or a loved one might be suffering from sleep apnea, be sure to make an appointment with an orthodontist that Pasadena trusts, like Dr. Karen Guinn.
