Do you struggle with snoring, fatigue, or trouble sleeping? If so, you may be suffering from a sleep disorder known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). This condition occurs when the airway becomes blocked during sleep, leading to disrupted breathing and reduced oxygen levels. If left untreated, OSA can lead to a number of serious health problems, including high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.
That’s where dental sleep medicine comes in. As a dentist trained in dental sleep medicine, I specialize in the treatment of sleep-related breathing disorders, including OSA. I use custom-made oral appliances, similar to a mouth guard, to help reposition the jaw and tongue and keep the airway open while you sleep.
Dental sleep medicine is a safe and effective alternative to traditional CPAP machines, which can be uncomfortable and difficult to use. The oral appliances I prescribe are small, comfortable, and easy to wear, making it simple for you to get the restful sleep you need.
Who needs dental sleep medicine?
Dental sleep medicine is ideal for anyone who struggles with snoring, fatigue, or trouble sleeping, especially if they have been diagnosed with OSA or have been advised by a physician to seek treatment for a sleep-related breathing disorder.
Why do you need dental sleep medicine?
If left untreated, OSA can lead to a number of serious health problems, including high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. By using dental sleep medicine, you can reduce your risk of developing these conditions and improve your overall health and well-being.
The benefits of dental sleep medicine:
Improved sleep quality: By keeping your airway open while you sleep, dental sleep medicine helps you get the restful sleep you need.
Reduced snoring: Many people who use dental sleep medicine notice a significant reduction in snoring.
Increased energy: With improved sleep quality, you’ll likely feel more alert and energetic during the day.
Improved overall health: By treating OSA, you can reduce your risk of developing serious health problems, including high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.
At my practice, I use the latest techniques and technology to diagnose and treat sleep-related breathing disorders, including OSA. I work closely with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets their specific needs and ensures that they get the restful sleep they deserve.
