Is Your Snore a Warning of Something More?

Every day it’s the same: You wake up with a dry, scratchy throat, a headache, and by 10:00 am, you’re already tired. You’re getting a good seven or eight hours of shut-eye (or at least you think you are), so why are you constantly exhausted? These, combined with snoring, are warning signs of a potentially dangerous condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea, or OSA. I take sleep apnea VERY seriously and think you should, too. So is your snore just a snore or a sign of something more alarming? Click here to take our sleep quiz & to learn more.

What Exactly IS Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea occurs when the airway is obstructed during sleep. Not only does this result in snoring, it actually prevents breathing for several consecutive seconds, multiple times each night. This lack of oxygen takes its toll on the body, leading to conditions that are far more serious than snoring, including:

  • An increased risk of diabetes
  • An increased risk of heart disease and heart attack
  • An increased risk of high blood pressure and stroke
  • An increased risk of mood disorders such as depression and anxiety
  • An increased risk of accidents on the road, at work, and at home

Do You Have OSA?

The first warning sign is usually snoring. Other risk factors include being overweight, having a large neck circumference, and having a family history of sleep apnea. Men are more likely to have OSA than women, as are those who are asthmatic or have chronic nasal congestion. In addition to snoring, you may have OSA if you:

  • Wake up gasping for air
  • Wake up with a dry mouth or sore throat
  • Wake up with a headache
  • Have difficulty concentrating during the day
  • Experience excessive sleepiness during the day

To know if you should talk to your doctor about a sleep study, take my simple online Sleep Quiz. If the results indicate that you should be concerned, we can schedule an appointment where we will determine the best course of treatment for your particular case. Whether you need stretching exercises to relieve jaw tension or a customized oral appliance, I will find a solution that will allow you to stop snoring, get the rest you need and deserve, and keep you happy and healthy. If you’re ready to confront your sleep apnea, contact my office today.

YOUR TOP-RATED & NEW FAVORITE DENTIST IN WAYNE, PENNSYLVANIA...

The folks at Wayne Dental Care are fantastic. They have a friendly staff who are always welcoming, fantastic doctors (I've been a longtime patient of Dr. Handel) that make long and tedious procedures much easier to tolerate. From cleaning to implants, this is a terrific place. They are also fantastic about dealing with emergencies. I highly recommend.

I have received great care here over the past 14 years, both preventative and emergency. The team is very professional and caring. Most recently, Dr. Brenner made time for me on an emergency basis to fix a broken tooth. He did a great job, and I left feeling 100 percent better than when I arrived.

I've been a patient at Wayne Dental Care for over ten years, and several of my family members are patients as well. The dental hygienists and front desk staff are terrific, friendly and helpful. I am always provided with a comprehensive written treatment plan for anything not covered by insurance, so I understand my costs. I always feel welcomed when I come in the front door!

Accommodated my very fluctuating schedule and paid close attention to details of recommended services. Pre-checked recommended services for coverage and priced out in advance. Also discussed claiming as much in services as possible within the calendar year in order to take advantage of my annual benefit allowance. Very Satisfied with quality of service and attention to detail.
