Sleep Apnea Symptoms Bellevue

Sleep-Apnea-Symptoms-Bellevue

While obstructive and central sleep apnea symptoms may overlap, these are the most common signs associated with sleep apnea:

  • Loud snoring
  • Gasping for air while sleeping
  • Interrupted breathing while asleep
  • Feeling of fatigue during the day or excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Insomnia
  • Morning headaches
  • Awakening with a dry mouth
  • Moodiness or irritability

Not everyone who experiences one or more of these sleep apnea symptoms may actually suffer the effects of sleep apnea; however, they represent risk factors that should be assessed by our board-certified biological dentist or a sleep specialist.

Our oral appliance may be your best and most effective treatment option to help prevent the airway from collapsing.

If you are experiencing mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea symptoms in Bellevue, call our office for a consultation.
