Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

General Dentist and Cosmetic Dental Services in Edmonton, Alberta

Posted: April 18, 2012

Sleep apnea is a serious disorder that affects thousands of people throughout Alberta. The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea. It is caused when your airway becomes blocked by soft tissue while you sleep, resulting in diminished oxygen and the increased potential for serious health risks.Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

There are symptoms of sleep apnea that you may be unaware of because they happen during your sleep. These include:

  • Loud snoring
  • Extended periods of not breathing
  • Gasping or choking
  • Restlessness

These are often brought to your attention by a loved one or roommate, but you needn’t rely solely on others to detect symptoms of sleep apnea.
Symptoms of sleep apnea you may notice include:

  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Frequent morning headaches
  • Mood changes
  • Inability to concentrate

If you suspect you are not getting the rest you need and it is having adverse effects on your day to day life, Edmonton dentist Dr. Christine Fialka-Eshenko can work closely with your family physician to develop the sleep apnea treatment option best suited to meet your needs.
