Identifying sleep apnea in yourself can be difficult. Often patients come to our Mission Viejo office because their partner has noticed some of the subtle signs of the condition:
- Loud snoring that disrupts even your partner’s sleep
- Abrupt awakening in the middle of the night
- Difficulty sleeping through the night
- Irritability with your loved ones
- Excessive drowsiness during the day
Many people think that snoring is normal, but it can be a sign of a serious medical condition. If you find yourself falling asleep while watching TV or snapping at your children for no good reason, the root of your discomfort may be sleep apnea.
The good news is that you don’t have to live long-term with the adverse effects of sleep apnea. With advances in modern dental technology, Dr. Makhoul can treat most cases in a comfortable and inexpensive manner with no need for surgery.
Are you suffering from the symptoms of sleep apnea? The best way to diagnose and treat sleep apnea is to consult with an experienced dentist.
