Does your snoring keep your loved ones up at night? Do you still feel groggy in the mornings, even after sleeping for a solid 8 hours? You may not actually be getting the rest you need. Our sleep apnea symptom quiz can help you identify whether you’re suffering from this common condition, so you can address the issue and reclaim your sleep cycle.
Why Test for Sleep Apnea?
Beyond robbing you of the rest your body needs, the effects of sleep apnea – if left untreated – can have terrible consequences for your physical, mental, and even dental health, including:
- Daytime fatigue
- Persistent headaches
- Trouble concentrating
- High blood pressure
- Increased risk of heart problems
- Metabolic syndrome
- Dry mouth and gum disease
How Do I Find Out if I Have Sleep Apnea?
Taking our quick, convenient sleep apnea symptom quiz can help you to figure out whether you might be suffering from sleep apnea. Once you’ve completed the questions, your results are sent to our Sleep Specialist, who analyzes your responses and will reach out if they indicate you’re at risk. They’ll discuss the issue further with you and, if you’re willing, schedule you for a free at-home sleep test.
The Medibyte Jr. sleep test includes an easy-to-use apparatus that you set up to monitor biological feedback as you sleep. These data points are logged by the test:
- Your body’s position
- Oxygen saturation
- Heart rate
- Air flow, and
- When your slumber is disturbed
Once your information is collected, we send it out to certified technicians to be verified. They then provide recommendations for improving the quality of your sleep. Our sleep apnea symptom quiz is the first step to improving your rest and wellbeing.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
At My Family Dentistry, we can help you experience more healthy, restorative sleep. Rather than a CPAP machine that must stay strapped over your face or nose all night, we fit you for a custom oral appliance that adjusts the position of your jaw to keep your airways clear. You can enjoy a better night’s rest, and so can your loved ones, when they’re no longer kept up by your snoring. Treating sleep apnea can be simple, straightforward, and comfortable.
Take our quiz and contact us with any questions or to set up an appointment to meet with Dr. Mullins and our Sleep Specialist.
