Do I Have Sleep Apnea?
If you don’t have an official sleep apnea diagnosis, there are a few signs and symptoms you can look for. If you are currently experiencing any of the symptoms below, you should schedule a sleep study with a sleep doctor so that you can get started on a treatment plan. Some of the signs include:
- Chronic dry mouth in the mornings
- Daytime drowsiness
- Loud, frequent snoring
- Waking up gasping for air
- Morning migraines
Types of Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder that causes patients to periodically stop breathing throughout the night. Central sleep apnea occurs when the brain doesn’t send the right signals to ensure regular breathing while you sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the soft tissues in the back of the throat collapse and block the airway while you sleep. Trained dentists can treat obstructive sleep apnea at their offices!
