There are a number of sleep apnea symptoms that may never be noticed by those who suffer from the disorder. Snoring, the most common symptom of sleep apnea, may only be known about if a loved one or housemate brings the issue to your attention. The same is true of symptoms such as periods of breath cessation followed by choking noises or gasping for air. This makes knowing the daytime symptoms of sleep apnea very important for people who live alone.

If you believe you suffer from sleep apnea or if you have been diagnosed with the disorder, please call Beaverton dentist Dr. Michael Negru at 503-848-3606 to learn about your treatment options.

Daytime symptoms of sleep apnea may include:

• Never feeling fully rested

• Excessive fatigue

• Waking with a dry mouth or sore throat

• Frequent morning headaches

• Memory and concentration problems

If you are experiencing any of these issues – even if you have never been told about your sleep disturbances – Dr. Negru would be honored to meet with you to assess your condition, discuss sleep apnea treatment options, and help restore for you and those you love a peaceful and restful night’s sleep.
