Sleep-Disordered breathing or sleep apnea, as you may know, can be life-threatening, depending on the severity.
What are the signs of Sleep-Disordered Breathing or sleep apnea?
- Insomnia or difficulty sleeping
- Loud snoring at night
- Waking up at night short of breath
- Snorting or choking sounds during the night
(indicating a restart of breathing)
- Headaches upon waking in the morning
- Falling asleep unintentionally during the day
- Extreme drowsiness throughout the day
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, contact our practice.
We can refer you to a sleep apnea specialist. The specialist may recommend a sleep study to diagnose the precise extent of the problem and can prescribe appropriate treatment. Depending on your situation, treatment may involve an oral device that we can custom-create for you.
