Help Me Stop Snoring!
Can’t stop snoring? Our dentists practice dental sleep medicine, which can help treat snoring using oral appliances. If your snoring seems to wake you up and cause you to feel more fatigued the next day, it may be possible that you have sleep apnea. The following is a list of signs or symptoms that indicate you may have sleep apnea:
- Restlessness while sleeping
- Dry mouth or sore throat when you wake up
- Waking up suddenly after gasping or choking
- Constant need to go pee at night
- Night sweats
- Sexual dysfunction
- Trouble concentrating
- Depression or anxiety
You may not be aware of your own symptoms, but your bed partner may notice. Although the above symptoms are common for sleep apnea, your dentist or doctor will rule out other possible reasons for your snoring. Taking medications that could affect your sleep, having other medical conditions, or traveling to locations with low oxygen are all possible reasons for experiencing sleep apnea or snoring.
Our office will do everything possible to diagnose and treat you if you lose sleep because of snoring or sleep apnea. We refer our patients out of the office for a sleep test if you don’t already have the results from one, and use that information to make a treatment plan with you.
