Struggling with snoring and sleeplessness? Give us a call! Snoring and sleep disturbances are often signs of obstructive sleep apnea, and your oral health could be to blame.

The National Sleep Foundation estimates that 18 million Americans have sleep apnea. The condition causes repeated breathing interruptions throughout the night; the pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes and may occur 30 or more times per hour.

One sign of sleep apnea is often tooth grinding (also called bruxism). Grinding is just one oral health sign of sleep apnea. A small jaw, tongue with scalloped edges, or redness in the throat (caused by snoring a lot, which is another symptom of sleep apnea) are also signs.

Gasping for breath causes people to wake up repeatedly, which diminishes sleep quality and causes fatigue. Sleep apnea is linked to a higher risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.

If we think you have may have sleep apnea, Dr. Feller will recommend a sleep study.

Symptoms of sleep apnea: Chronic snoring, daytime drowsiness, waking up with a dry mouth, or sore throat, and morning headaches.
