Sleep Apnea Dentist in Boulder, Colorado

Has anyone ever said you stop breathing in your sleep? Do people complain about your loud snoring? These are classic signs of a potentially dangerous sleep disorder. Sleep apnea is the most severe form of sleep-disordered breathing. If you have it, your breathing may stop hundreds of times a night, forcing your brain to awaken partly to restore breathing. You are likely unaware that you’re waking up. If left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to cognitive difficulties, heart problems, and metabolic disorders.

 

For some reason, many individuals don’t consider sleep apnea a serious issue. Why the disconnect? We are talking about breathing, folks! There isn’t a biological activity more fundamental than that. And, substandard sleep can cause a plethora of serious health issues. It also impacts performance in every aspect of life; work, hobbies, and social settings. So what are the symptoms? It can be hard to diagnose because it occurs while you’re asleep. However, during the day, you may notice several symptoms, such as:

  • Sleepiness
  • Waking up short of breath
  • Morning headaches
  • Dry mouth on waking
  • Tendency to fall asleep during work or while driving
  • Waking up unrested
  • Moodiness or irritability
  • Sadness
  • Memory problems
  • Concentration difficulties
  • Weight gain or inability to lose weight
