Sleep Apnea Defined
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which breathing stops repeatedly during the night, either because the muscles in the back of the throat relax or the brain doesn’t send the correct signals to the muscles that control breathing. In many cases, patients may not be aware that there is a problem, or contribute their symptoms to something else. In other cases, sleep apnea can lead to high blood pressure, heart problems, or type 2 diabetes, so it’s important to seek a diagnosis and treatment. Fortunately, our team has the ability to help patients who are suffering from the disorder and treat it through inexpensive, non-invasive treatments.
Signs of Sleep Apnea
The only way to receive an official diagnosis for sleep apnea is to complete a sleep study where you are evaluated by a sleep doctor. However, there are some signs that can indicate that you are experiencing sleep apnea. These symptoms include:
- Excessive drowsiness during the day
- Waking abruptly during the night
- Loud snoring
- Frequent headaches
- Waking up with a dry or sore throat
- Waking up gasping or choking
Meadow Creek Family Dentistry offers affordable custom mouthguards that can be worn during sleep to keep your airway open while asleep and prevent sleep apnea from affecting your life. Our team can take impressions of your teeth to ensure that your mouthguard fits comfortably while you sleep, so that even when your throat muscles relax, your airway remains open.
