Am I at Risk for Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea can affect anyone at any age, even children. Risk factors for sleep apnea include:

  • Male
  • Being overweight
  • Being over the age of forty
  • Having a large neck size (17 inches or greater in men and 16 inches or greater in women)
  • Having large tonsils, a large tongue, or a small jaw bone
  • Having a family history of sleep apnea
  • Gastroesophageal reflux, or GERD
  • Nasal obstruction due to a deviated septum, allergies, or sinus problems

If you are concerned that you (or someone you know) might have signs,  please take this confidential online SLEEP HEALTH RISK ASSESSMENT to determine your risk.

CPAP Users

Although CPAP is the most common medical treatment for sleep apnea, if you can not tolerate or dislike the treatment, our Sleep Health Dentists can suggest a comfortable dental option.  Much like the one shown above, our dentists can make and titrate a dental device (looks like a mouthguard) that is nearly as effective as CPAP. This device delivers proven results. It is our goal to know that each device is working to the best of its ability and we will test and deliver results to you via an ARES sleep study.
