If you suffer from excessive snoring, we can provide an initial screening for sleep apnea and refer you to your medical doctor for a possible sleep study.
Symptoms of sleep apnea
Symptoms of sleep apnea and other sleep disorders include:
- Daytime sleepiness despite sleeping adequate hours at night
- Extreme tiredness
- Loud snoring
- Increased irritability
While there are many forms of sleep disorders, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is quite common. You may stop breathing hundreds of times in a night and resume breathing with a loud snort. Your bed partner will likely be aware of your symptoms, but you will probably not remember these episodes.
If you are a heavy snorer or diagnosed with a sleep disorder, we can fit you with a nighttime dental appliance to help. Call (425) 454-1322 for an appointment. Spektor Dental is located in the Bellegrove Professional Park, just north of Overlake Medical Center in Bellevue.
