Do you have trouble staying asleep at night? If so, you might be one of the many people who suffer from sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder that causes interruptions and pauses in your breathing while sleeping. Obstructive sleep apnea is the result of obstructions in the airway, such as your tongue rolling back into your throat while sleeping. Sleep apnea needs to be diagnosed from a sleep physician. If you have already spoken with your physician, our dentist can help too!
Common symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Severe drowsiness during the day
- Personality changes
- Difficulty staying asleep
- Waking up with a sore, dry throat
- Morning headaches
If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, Dr. Angela Osborn can offer you a treatment based on the severity of your sleep apnea. If your sleep apnea is moderate, we may recommend an oral appliance that keeps your airway open while sleeping. If you have a more severe case of sleep apnea, our skilled dentist can come up with a personalized treatment for you!
