What It Means To Have Sleep Apnea

What It Means To Have Sleep Apnea

san antonio sleep apnea

Do you ever feel tired during the day despite resting the night before? Do you suffer from moodiness and issues with memory? If so, this could mean the presence of sleep apnea. Your Schertz, TX, sleep experts want to help you better understand the disorder, so you know when to seek treatment and what we can do to help!

The Causes of Sleep Apnea

Factors behind sleep apnea could include a large neck circumference, sinus or allergy issues, a deviated septum, obesity, or issues with the growth of your smile or the eruption of your teeth. While this can impact all ages and genders, men 55 and older are at a particularly high risk. The disorder means that as you sleep soft tissues in the back of your mouth and in your throat collapse and cut off your airflow. You stop breathing until the brain wakes you once it registers the drop in oxygen. While you may not remember this happening, it can happen hundreds of times in a night. Without treatment, you could suffer from a host of uncomfortable symptoms.

The Warning Signs of Trouble

How do you know if you have sleep apnea? People with the disorder may report daytime drowsiness, moodiness, and trouble concentrating on tasks or issues with their short-term memory. Waking in the night gasping for air or choking is common too, as is chronic snoring, headaches, and dry mouth. When you begin to experience these symptoms or if your significant other lets you know about them, then contact our team tight away. We will conduct a detailed diagnosis so we can offer the best treatment option! For many, we don’t need a CPAP machine, instead we can offer treatment with a custom sleep appliance.

Starting Treatment

If an oral appliance is the right choice for you, then our team will take detailed digital images and measurements of your smile, so we can custom-fit an appliance. The device will look and fit like a mouthguard, and is worn as you sleep. The appliance then repositions the jaw and tongue to keep airways open and free of obstruction, so you breathe without interruption and feel more rested and alert the next day. The device is easy to clean and use, and can travel with you as needed. We want to help you enjoy a good night’s rest, so if you have any questions about how we diagnose and treat sleep apnea, then contact our team today to learn more.
