Sleep apnea is a fairly common sleeping disorder characterized by pauses and interruptions in breathing during sleep. It is often underrated and can be confused with snoring, but it can actually contribute to more serious health issues, such as heart disease, high blood pressure and more. Sleep physicians are the most qualified health care professionals for diagnosing this disorder, but you can also speak to your doctor and dentist. General symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Severe drowsiness during the day
- Increased irritability and other personality changes
- Recurring morning headaches or migraines
- Waking with a dry throat
- Trouble staying asleep
Treatments for sleep apnea are truly dependent on the severity of the patient’s condition. For some, an oral appliance is sufficient enough to treat mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. There are additional treatment options, too, for those who may need more intense care. We are dedicated to improving your health and quality of rest, so you are welcome to contact Tender Dental Care at 810-715-3368 to arrange a visit for sleep apnea treatment and receive truly caring service from our dentist.
