Are you exhausted every day, no matter how much sleep you got the night before? Do you have difficulty concentrating at work, or find yourself overly prone to mood swings? Does your bed partner accuse you of loud and frequent snoring?
These are just a handful of symptoms that might indicate you have sleep apnea: a potentially dangerous sleeping disorder that affects millions of Americans nationwide. People often attribute these symptoms to other blanket causes, like stress or anxiety, and dismiss them out of hand. But if sleep apnea goes ignored and untreated for too long, it can result in serious health consequences – from a car accident caused by drowsiness to high blood pressure, stroke, and even heart disease.
Consulting an experienced sleep apnea dentist is the first step in correctly diagnosing your condition. In order to determine whether or not you suffer from sleep apnea, a series of tests must be performed while you sleep overnight, using a device called a polysomnogram (PSG). Your body functions – including breathing patterns, oxygen levels, eye movement, and brain function – will be closely monitored by the PSG. Any abnormalities will be documented and identified.
