One of the most serious of all sleep disorders is called sleep apnea. This condition can not only impact your quality of sleep, but it can actually be life-threatening. It occurs when a patient quits breathing for 10 seconds or longer while sleeping. Many patients may not even realize that they suffer from sleep apnea. And many people don’t know that this potentially dangerous condition can actually be treated by your dentist! Dr. Robertson has helped many of his patients to resolve this issue.
Do You Have Sleep Apnea?
Many people suffer from a variety of sleep disorders. Sometimes, it’s obvious, but patients who suffer from sleep apnea may not even know that they have a problem. What follows are some indications that you might have sleep apnea:
- You snore very loudly, often loudly enough to wake up other family members
- You fall asleep at inappropriate times (during movies, or concerts, for example)
- Driving makes you sleepy relatively quickly
- You wake in the morning with sore teeth or a sore jaw (often caused by teeth grinding)
- You wake up with headaches in the morning
- You feel tired throughout the day (from lack of sleep)
Sleep apnea can occur at any age, but it is especially common in older patients. If you suffer from this sleep disorder, it can negatively impact the quality of your life. Call Dr. Robertson today for more information on dental treatments that can help alleviate sleep apnea.
