Sleep apnea is a disorder that causes pauses and interruptions in breathing during sleep. Obstructions in the airway, like collapsed tissues in the airway or the tongue rolling back in the throat, cause obstructive sleep apnea. If left untreated, sleep apnea can contribute to serious health issues, such as high blood pressure, liver problems and heart disease.

A sleep physician must diagnose sleep apnea. We suggest that you speak with your physician and our dentists if you notice any sleep apnea symptoms. These include:

  • Irritability and personality changes
  • Difficulty staying asleep
  • Extreme fatigue during the day
  • Snoring
  • Frequent headaches in the morning
  • Waking up with a very sore or dry throat
