If you’re suffering from sleep apnea, then you know good sleep is hard to come by. And even if you’re getting a full 8-hours of sleep, you may still feel tired, drowsy, and headachy the next day. You may also notice yourself feeling irritated and grumpy for no apparent reason.
Sleep apnea is serious. Left untreated, it is even believed to be a major contributing factor to heart disease and other illnesses. You owe it to yourself to get help for sleep apnea, fast. That’s why we’re here. At The Houston Dentists, our dentist will ensure you sleep soundly, protect your health, and get back to feeling normal.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea occurs when you briefly stop breathing for 10 seconds or more dozens of times every night — often without even knowing it.
A collapsed airway or poor circulation is often to blame, which means loud snoring can be a sign that you have the disorder or may suffer from it in the future.
Anyone can suffer from sleep apnea, but people with the following characteristics are often more at risk:
- 40+ years old
- Excess weight
- Large tonsils, small jaw
- A family history of sleep apnea
Signs You May Be Suffering from Sleep Apnea
Waking up frequently during the night, often gasping for breath
Headaches and a sore or dry throat in the morning
Daytime sleepiness or fatigue and difficulty concentrating
Loud snoring that disturbs your partner
