Morning Headaches & Sleep Apnea, Phoenix Sleep Apnea Dentist Dr. Donald Wilcox

Glendale Dentist Serving Phoenix, Scottsdale, Peoria, and nearby areas in Arizona

A new study takes a look at the link between morning headaches and obstructive sleep apnea.  Results showed that 34 % of sleep apnea group reported having morning headaches vs. 9% of the control group. People who reported morning headaches had much lower oxygen saturation levels during sleep.  The good news?  Treating sleep apnea eliminated morning headaches in 90 percent of participants. If you suffer from morning headaches, especially if you have any of the other warning signs of sleep apnea, get yourself tested for sleep apnea along with a thorough evaluation.  At our Phoenix center for dental sleep medicine, we successfully treat many Arizona patients for snoring and sleep apnea.  For more information about whether your morning headaches may be caused by sleep apnea, visit www.DesertSmiles.com.
