SLEEP APNEA

Snoring & Sleep Apnea Treatment – Sleep better, improve your life and live longer.

Do you or your sleeping partner suffer with snoring, daytime drowsiness, or irritability? Do you wake with headaches or feel unrefreshed after sleeping all night? Sleep breathing disorders can compromise your quality of life, but more concerning, sleep breathing disorders can often compromise your overall health as well.

Our office can assist patients with snoring or sleep breathing disorders such as sleep apnea. Oral sleep appliance therapy is a very effective treatment option offered by our office to patients suffering from sleep breathing disorders.

Imagine how you – and your sleeping partner – would feel if you could rest comfortably and silently night after night. Also imagine improving your overall health and quality of life by decreasing or eliminating the cause for and effects of high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, brain damage, depression, erectile dysfunction, diabetes, inability to lose weight, and attention deficit disorder. These conditions, and many others, are often associated with sleep breathing disorders such as snoring and sleep apnea.

If you have any of the following, you may have a sleep breathing disorder:

  1. Daytime drowsiness or fatigue
  2. Loud, recurring snoring
  3. Choking or gasping for air in your sleep
  4. A man with neck size greater than 17 inches
  5. A woman with neck size greater than 16 inches
  6. Stop breathing while asleep
  7. Are overweight
  8. Trouble losing weight
  9. Unexplained weight gain
  10. High blood pressure
  11. Acid reflux
  12. History of stroke or heart attack
  13. Fall asleep during the day when activity is low
  14. Family history of sleep apnea
  15. Impotence

During your consultation, our office will review the severity of your condition and discuss dental sleep treatment. It is always best to have had a sleep study conducted; however, this may not be necessary in treatment for pure snoring.
