When Fatigue Points To Sleep Apnea

Can your daily feelings of fatigue, irritability, and lack of focus point to problems with sleep apnea? People who struggle with this issue can experience many of the negative impacts of sleep deprivation. If you have problems that make you suspect you slept poorly, despite having enjoyed what you believed was a good night’s rest, it could be because sleep apnea disrupted your rest cycles. Our Livonia/Detroit, MI dentist’s office can help you deal with this problem. We can provide an assessment to help you determine if this problem might affect you. If it does, we can discuss treatment through oral appliance therapy to correct the problem and restore your nightly breathing!

Constantly Tired And Unfocused During The Day? It Could Be Sleep Apnea

After a full night’s rest, you should feel energized, focused, and ready to meet your day (even if some of us need more time to feel fully awake). Someone who frequently deals with the effects of sleep deprivation despite a “normal” sleep schedule can wonder why they struggle so much with these negative feelings. Frequent struggles with fatigue, a lack of focus and short-term memory, and other problems we associate with sleep loss can point to difficulties with sleep apnea. While snoring is often the symptom people associate with this condition, recognizing the other signs of trouble is important, particularly if you do not have someone who can alert you to your nightly snoring issues.

Look Out For The Warning Signs Of Sleep Trouble

Obstructive sleep apnea affects you by interfering with your nightly breathing. When your airways become restricted, your body has to awaken to clear the obstruction, and that puts a premature end to your rest cycles. The airway blockages can cause a person to snore or make difficult, uncomfortable breathing sounds while asleep. Someone who struggles with this condition can frequently wake up with a sore throat or dry mouth each morning, experience more regular headaches, and even have more difficulty managing their blood pressure.

Addressing Obstructive Sleep Apnea To Improve Your Health And Well-Being

With a custom oral appliance, you can put an end to your nightly struggles to rest soundly. The appliance is made to stay securely in place while you are asleep. Its presence stops you from experiencing airway interference during the night, which means you can complete your sleep cycles.
