Symptoms of sleep apnea may not be immediately noticed by the patient. Loud snoring, occasional gasping or choking and pauses in breathing are all common indicators of this sleep disorder, and the patient may be entirely unaware of them. However, the patient’s family members and loved ones are less likely to let these symptoms go unnoticed and may be the first to express concern. Symptoms that may be more noticeable to the patient can include attention or memory problems, daytime sleepiness and moodiness. The right treatment can help control symptoms, reduce the risk of associated health problems and allow patients to enjoy a better night’s sleep.
Dr. Afar offers treatment options that can include customized options for his patients. Lifestyle changes can be helpful along with comfortable custom-designed mouth guards. These mouth guards can keep the tongue, jaw and other tissues in an open position so that even when the muscles relax during sleep, the airways will remain open. They are designed to meet the patient’s specific needs.
