Check out this Quick Sleep Apnea Quiz!
Sleep apnea can affect anyone regardless of age, weight, or gender. Typically, someone with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) will snore heavily, then stop breathing for a period of time. The repeated lack of oxygen to the brain puts extra strain on the heart, increasing blood pressure and the risk of heart disease, and other health problems.
Always feeling tired is key symptom of obstructive sleep apnea. By determining your level of daytime sleepiness, sleep physicians and dentists can gain insight into how severe your sleep deprivation is. Take a quick sleep apnea quiz to see how many OSA indicators you have.
If you or someone you know has experienced any of these symptoms regularly, it could be untreated obstructive sleep apnea. Contact your Snoring Isn’t Sexy dentist today for a consultation to discover if your snore is something more.
