Symptoms of Sleep Apnea and Excessive Snoring

Since snoring and sleep apnea occur when we are at rest, they often go unnoticed until someone else points out the symptoms. Some symptoms you may notice include waking up with dry mouth, headaches, and feeling tired even after a full night of sleep.

Risk Factors for Sleep Apnea

Certain factors can put a person at increased risk for sleep apnea. Those who are overweight are likely to develop bulky throat tissue that can block the airway when one lies down to sleep. Patients who drink alcoholic beverages before bed or take medications that cause sedating or drowsy effects can also cause soft oral tissue to relax into the throat and block airways. Other contributors to sleep apnea can include developmental abnormalities at the back of the mouth, smoking, and a family history of sleep apnea.

Sleep Apnea and Health

Research shows strong correlations between sleep apnea and other health issues – especially issues related to sleep deprivation. Long-term sleep deprivation can cause chronic fatigue, memory loss, impaired motor function, depression, and irritability. Studies have also shown that erratic breathing patterns caused by sleep apnea can weaken the heart and negatively affect the pulmonary system.

Treatment Options

There are a few treatment options available for sleep apnea. If sleep apnea is detected, we will recommend the use of a custom oral appliance, which is the most comfortable and conservative treatment option. If this treatment is ineffective, we can refer patients to specialists for further evaluation.

Great dentist office. I have been coming here for years! They have a great team of dentists, hygienists and office staff who treat you well. They care for your teeth and recommend only things that will help you keep your teeth lasting their longest. They do not try to sell you extras that you may not want or need. They book up fast but in an emergency they are there for me. Thanks Allen Dental!
