Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a condition that occurs when a person frequently stops breathing for a few moments while sleeping. The most common symptom is a pause in breathing followed by gasping or choking. Many sleep apnea patients are tired during the day because they do not get enough quality sleep at night. Additional symptoms include morning headaches, frequently waking to use the bathroom, dry mouth, sore throat, feelings of irritability, depression, mood swings, memory or learning problems, and trouble concentrating.

How Sleep Apnea Affects Your Life

OSA is a serious condition that prevents people from achieving a deep level of REM sleep, leading them to feel sleepy at inappropriate times, become irritable, and suffer from impaired motor functions. This can make day-to-day functioning more difficult, but when left untreated, sleep apnea can cause even more major issues, including heart problems and death. It’s important to treat sleep apnea as early as possible, so contact your orthodontist if you snore frequently or do not often feel rested after sleep.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

We perform a number of sleep apnea treatments, utilizing traditional CPAP breathing devices and smaller, more comfortable models. Medication may be used to treat the underlying causes of sleep apnea, and surgery may be required in extreme cases. Many patients can treat sleep apnea naturally by making small lifestyle changes like regularly exercising, losing weight, avoiding alcohol and caffeine, and maintaining a regular sleep schedule.
