You might think that sleep apnea may just concern your snoring habits, but in fact, it’s more serious than snoring. It is the when breathing repeatedly stops and starts, and during sleep, this is very harmful and can lead to other serious issues as well.
Snoring, though, is a very common symptom of sleep apnea. Some other sleep apnea symptoms to be aware of are:
- Hypersomnia (excessive daytime sleepiness)
- Breathing cessation during sleep
- Abrupt awakenings with shortness of breath
- Memory or learning problems
- Attention deficits
- Headaches upon awakening
- Dry mouth upon awakening
If you have any of these symptoms, you may have sleep apnea and we can see if you may need a sleep apnea dental device. We offer free sleep apnea consultations. Please consider taking this step to improve your overall health.
