Alexandria sleep apnea can have noticeable effects on your day-to-day life, but it can also pose a direct threat to your health. Your airway closes, leading to your breathing becoming shallow or even stopping entirely for a few seconds. It’s a process that repeats itself during the sleep cycle, possibly as many as hundreds of times in one night. And you might not even know that you’re suffering from it. At Alexandria Center of Dentistry, we provide sleep apnea treatments that are simple, effective, and safe, so that you can get back to feeling normal again.
Identifying the presence of Alexandria sleep apnea begins with observation of symptoms that are associated with the condition. Are you tired during the day even though you had a full night’s sleep? That’s a common one. Among the others are difficulties waking up in the morning, night sweats, headaches in the morning, dry mouth or sore throat upon waking, suddenly waking in the middle of the night as if you are choking or gasping, and even sexual dysfunction. Perhaps the sign that is most closely linked to Alexandria sleep apnea is snoring. Unfortunately, you cannot detect that without help, just as you cannot know if you are restless while you sleep. If you share your bed with a partner, enlist their help in making that determination. If not, you may need to participate in a sleep study. Our dentist will evaluate the severity of your circumstances and discuss with you what options are available in terms of sleep apnea treatments, and which one is the most appropriate for your unique situation.
There is absolutely no reason why you should struggle under the effects of Alexandria sleep apnea any longer. Help is available right here at our office. All you need do is to call us and arrange a convenient time for you to come in for a consultation.
