Sleep Apnea Treatment in Lexington, KY
Snoring is definitely a social problem causing strain in relationships by decreasing the amount of sleep we get. But is there more to snoring than just noise?
Studies have shown that 80% of habitual snorers have Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Obstructive Sleep Apnea is where a person’s airway is restricted during sleep causing them to stop breathing, forcing them to awaken several times a night. Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a life-threatening disease! Patients suffering from sleep apnea experience snoring, sleepiness upon awakening, fatigue throughout the day and poor concentration. Obstructive Sleep Apnea can cause patients to suffer from high blood pressure, stroke, weight gain and depression, just to name a few.
While the go-to treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea has been the use of a CPAP machine, more sleep apnea sufferers are turning to a more comfortable alternative, the oral sleep appliance. The oral appliance doesn’t restrict movement while sleeping, make loud mechanical noises during the night or make you feel claustrophobic like a CPAP machine.
At Lexington, KY dental office, we are able to provide our patients with these devices, helping patients not only feel better and get more rest but their spouses/partners too!
Could you be suffering from sleep apnea? Daytime sleepiness is an indicator of a sleep disorder and a sleep study can diagnose a person with sleep apnea. We are able to provide our patients with the equipment to do a sleep study in the comfort of their own home rather than having to go to a sleep clinic.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a life-threatening disease! Don’t wait….call us today to schedule a consultation with a Lexington, KY dentist today.
