Snoring And Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that can have a significant impact on your overall well-being. It is characterized by shallow or even intermittent pauses in breathing during sleep cycles, often accompanied by snoring. If you or a loved one is experiencing these symptoms, it’s essential to seek professional help from Herriott Street Dental to address this potentially serious issue.


In addition to snoring, sleep apnea can manifest through various symptoms, including:

  • Jaw pain
  • Persistent morning fatigue
  • Frequent awakenings during the night
  • Morning headaches
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness

Research has shown that during sleep apnea episodes, the relaxation of throat tissues can lead to the clenching of the jaw, exerting undue stress on the teeth and supporting structures.

Moreover, individuals with sleep apnea may also exhibit other dental-related signs, such as:

  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Excessive teeth grinding or jaw tension
  • Pain while chewing
  • Chronic headaches
  • Neck and shoulder discomfort
