Symptoms of 
Sleep Apnea

Fort McMurray Family Dental

(866) 513-0847
Snoring is more common in men than women, occurring when the flow of air from your mouth or nose to your lungs makes tissues in your throat vibrate while asleep. This issue is caused when the muscles at the back roof of your mouth, throat and tongue are too relaxed. This problem is sometimes related to sleep apnea but to better understand and assess the situation, check to see if you have all or several of the following symptoms.
● Irritability
● Depression
● Pauses taking place when you are snoring
● Personality changes or mood swings
● The need to wake up frequently to urinate
● Sore throat or dry mouth when you wake up
● Breathing cessation episodes
● Attention problems
● Difficulty staying asleep
● Choking or gasping following pauses
● Fighting sleepiness at work, while driving or during the entirety of your day
● Quickly falling asleep when inactive
● Morning headaches
● Tossing and turning in your sleep
● Decreased libido
In order to be your best at all times, come to Franklin Dental, the Fort McMurray dentist that helps you sleep peacefully and breath normally. 

More About Sleep Apnea

You may encounter sleep apnea if you have a problem with your jawbone or have large tonsils. Sleep apnea is a severe condition that we want you to be cognitive of since it required immediate assistance. We want to help you halt the occurrence of it. As with snoring, sleep apnea happens when your throat muscles and tongue are too relaxed during sleep creating blocked or narrow airways. While more likely to occur in overweight people, those that sleep on their back or consume alcohol before bed, it is something we want you to be aware of. Sleep apnea can lead to many more negative situations.

Reactions to Sleep Apnea
● Diabetes
● High blood pressure in general or in your lungs
● Abnormal heart rhythm, heart failure, stroke or coronary artery disease
