Know the Signs: Apnea

3-d scan of airway

Once we check your airway, we review several of the key signs for sleep issues:

  • Waking up tired
  • Insomnia
  • Morning headaches
  • Waking up at night to go to the bathroom
  • Loud or frequent snoring
  • Silent pauses in breathing
  • Choking or gasping sounds
  • Daytime sleepiness or fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Memory loss
  • Decreased sexual desire
  • Irritability

Only a visit with your doctor or pulmonologist will be able to determine if you are suffering from sleep apnea. Our role as your dentist is to look for key signs in providing you with your referral for a better night’s sleep.
