Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder. It is characterized by repeated stops and starts in the patients breathing pattern while they sleep. It can disrupt your lifestyle. Sleep apnea is an involuntary action by the patient, but with proper treatment it can be improved. If you struggle with sleep apnea symptoms, we may be able to help you.
Sleep Apnea Symptoms
If you snore loudly you may have sleep apnea. Similarly, if you feel tired even after a full night's sleep, it may be due to sleep apnea. There are other signs of sleep apnea as well. If a patient talks about gasping for air during their sleep, we immediately think of sleep apnea. In addition, if the patient reports of regular morning headaches, or difficulty staying awake during the day, sleep apnea may be the culprit. Having a dry mouth upon waking is another common sign of sleep apnea.

Most people know about a CPAP machine which uses positive pressure to keep your airway open while you sleep. Another option maybe to use a mouthpiece.
