Dr. Farhan Qureshi is dedicated to helping you maintain your oral health as well as your overall health. With that said, getting adequate sleep is crucial to leading a happy, healthy, and functional life. Sleep disorders can negatively impact the way you look, feel, and function in day-to-day life.
One of the most common sleep disorders, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), affects nearly 30 million adults in the United States¹. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) causes patients to stop breathing for up to a hundred times throughout the night.
These episodes can last anywhere from three seconds to an entire minute. Characterized by loud snoring, sleep apnea can not only annoy your bedside partner, it can also put you at a higher risk for a range of serious health problems.
By offering the most effective apnea treatments, Farhan Qureshi, DDS in Alexandria, VA can help you or your partner get a healthier night’s rest.
