Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

Fresno Dentist Serving Madera, Clovis, Visalia, Tulare & Nearby Areas in California

Sleep apnea is a serious and life-threatening disorder that is most often marked by chronic, loud snoring. Snoring associated with sleep apnea is typically joined by periods of breath cessation followed by choking and gasping noises as airflow resumes. These issues are often brought to the attention of people who suffer from sleep apnea by a loved one or housemate – but what about people who live alone or whose symptoms are never brought to their attention?

If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea in Fresno and are looking for a safe and effective treatment option, please contact Gregory G. Miyake, DDS online or by calling 559-224-0103 today to schedule your initial consultation.

Daytime Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

If you are unware of nighttime sleep apnea symptoms or if you are not certain your snoring is related to this disorder, there are a number of daytime symptoms that should prompt a call to Dr. Miyake for a treatment consultation. These include:

  • Frequently waking with a dry mouth or sore throat
  • Morning headaches
  • Excessive daytime fatigue
  • Memory and concentration problems
  • Inexplicable mood swings
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Loss of physical ability

These symptoms may indicate a number of issues, but when combined with snoring or poor sleep, they are often a clear sign of sleep apnea.

Treating Sleep Apnea

Dr. Miyake offers noninvasive CPAP alternatives for the treatment of sleep apnea. These may be combined with lifestyle adjustments for maximum effect, but can work effectively on their own as well. This depends largely on the causes of your sleep apnea and can be discussed in greater detail as appropriate during the course of your treatment.
