Do you wake up feeling tired? Have you been told that you snore? These signs and symptoms may point to obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea, also known as OSA, is a common condition that impacts the sleep — and health — of many adults. But with the right OSA treatment in South Florida, obstructive sleep apnea won’t be a problem for you.
What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
Obstructive sleep apnea means that your airway becomes partially blocked when you sleep, causing you to briefly stop breathing. This can happen many times each night and compromise the quality of your sleep.
What causes Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
The soft tissue in your throat that isn’t a problem while you are upright reposition when you lie down, causing your airway to become blocked. OSA can be the temporary side effect of a cold and can become a problem during pregnancy. OSA can develop due to allergies or weight gain. Smoking, drinking alcohol, and taking some prescription medicines may worsen obstructive sleep apnea. In some cases, genetics are thought to play a role in OSA.
What are the risks associated with Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
If obstructive sleep apnea is a persistent problem for you, your health is at risk. OSA disrupts sleep, which can have negative effects on health and well-being, including:
And other health risks.
Your body needs deep restorative sleep to rest and heal. Your organs need oxygen. OSA can cause poor sleep and decreases oxygen levels, leaving you tired and less healthy every morning.
How is Obstructive Sleep Apnea treated?
Treatment of OSA involves keeping the airway open continuously during sleep. A CPAP machine, over-the-counter oral devices, and oral appliance therapy are popular obstructive sleep apnea treatment methods.
A CPAP machine requires the OSA patient to wear a mask throughout the night. Many patients stop using their CPAP machine, saying it’s too loud or too inconvenient. Without treatment, their sleep apnea continues.
An over-the-counter appliance for OSA fits into the mouth and keeps the airway unobstructed during sleep. There’s no mask, no machine, no noise. But OSA patients have found that these boil-and-bite devices lose their shape after being boiled a few times, and can be uncomfortable. When a patient stops wearing their OTC sleep apnea device, their poor sleep quality returns.
OAT treatment from Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics is a good way to correct obstructive sleep apnea. An OAT device is custom-made for the OSA patient at one of our three South Florida offices. This device is worn every night, keeping the airway clear and letting the OSA patient get the restful sleep they need. An OAT device is made to comfortably fit each patient, retain its shape, and conveniently treat obstructive sleep apnea. Contact our Weston, Brickell, or Miami office for an OAT Treatment consultation with Dr. Yazji. Don’t let the risks of OSA harm your health — get treatment for your obstructive sleep apnea at the offices of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics.

Quick Facts about St. Patrick’s Day
• Saint Patrick – the foremost patron saint of Ireland, who is thought to have lived during the 5th century AD, and is said to have brought Christianity to the Emerald Isle
• March 17th – St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated every year on this date

If you’re wearing traditional silver or ceramic braces, lingual braces, or Insignia advanced smile design braces in South Florida, you won’t want to eat foods that are too crunchy, hard or sticky.
Irish-Inspired Beef Roast, Irish Shepherd’s Pie, and Colcannon are all soft dishes that are popular on St. Paddy’s day, and they are braces-friendly too.

St. Paddy’s Day cookies, cakes, cupcakes, and drinks are also popular on this holiday.

Most people go to the dentist for a regular check-up because they know how important it is to have good oral health. It is said that children learn from seeing. So, parents must teach their children by example. When children see that their parents care about their oral hygiene then they will care about theirs.
Here are 6 ways parents can promote good oral hygiene with their children:

People who can smile in the mirror with pride can smile at anyone with pride.

Some people believe that communication begins with your words, but it starts much earlier than that. According to psychologist Albert Mehrabian’s communication model, only 7% of what we communicate is actually verbal, yet 55% is body language which encompasses your smile. Statistically speaking, your smile delivers a powerful message when you choose to send it. It says so much about yourself that you don’t realize, even the length and width of your smile and most certainly your teeth and whether they are cared for or not.
Every single time you smile you activate the messaging system in your brain that sends a neural text for some serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins to throw your body a party. This all happens within moments of you deciding to smile.
According to a university in Minnesota experiment, there are 19 different types of smiles but only 6 are due to happiness. Let Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics help you to make each of those 6 smiles outstanding! A study by a UC-San Francisco researcher found that these different types of smiles can be placed in one of two categories: polite or sincere smiles and can use up to 53 muscles in your face. If that isn’t enough, read these interesting facts?
Your smile sends out the most basic human communication that says, “I’m worth getting to know.” It also says, “I’m open to new experiences, outgoing and fun to be around.” Believe it or not, your smile is also thought to regulate blood pressure and improve your moods. If the strength and importance of your smile are important enough to have countless experiments and studies done, then it is important enough to invest in.
