Your Dentist Can Recognize Signs Of Sleep Apnea
Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a commonly misdiagnosed and a chronically under diagnosed medical problem. It is a type of sleep disorder that can range from insomnia and snoring, to sleep interruptions that prevent one from experiencing a normal rhythm of the sleep cycle.
These disturbances can also be associated with oxygen depression which can trigger other serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes. Other problems include a decrease in work productivity due to compromised reaction times and falling asleep.
Causes of the problem include airway restrictions from weight gain, anatomical problems which restrict the airway, to neurological conditions which alter the sleep pattern such as restless leg syndrome (leg spasms and twitching).

Common symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring, waking up multiple times at night with a dry mouth, gasping for air during sleep, lethargy and sluggishness during waking hours, frequent headaches, irritability, daytime sleepiness, inability to focus, concentrate or pay attention, and marked decrease in work productivity.
