Hi, I'm Dr. Mitchell Friedman of Newman Springs dental care in Lincroft New Jersey. Do you wake up tired like you didn't sleep soundly? Does your snoring disturb your bed partner? Are you struggling to lose weight are you on many medications for high blood pressure or diabetes? Did you know that 80% of Americans have some level of obstructive sleep apnea and if left untreated it can take up to 15 years off your life?

Don't wait do it now
Obstructive sleep apnea can do more than just make you exhausted during the day. Untreated sleep apnea has been linked to serious health concerns like high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and depression. The good news is that Dr. Friedman or Dr. Menon can fit you with an oral appliance that may be able to reduce or eliminate your symptoms.
It will rest comfortably in your mouth while you sleep, keeping your airway open and helping you get the quality sleep you need to function during your day. Since snoring is a symptom of sleep apnea, you will probably snore less as well. Both you and your bed partner will be thankful for that! Plus, you could avoid having to use a noisy, cumbersome CPAP machine. We’ll need to work with your primary care physician to determine if eliminating CPAP is the best choice for you.
You can consider giving up your CPAP if:
- It is not sufficient to ease your symptoms
- You are unable to wear a CPAP
- Your diagnosis is mild enough to be treated with only an oral appliance
Don’t Ignore the Signs of This Sleep Disorder
We often hear patients ask us, “What is sleep apnea?” and “What are sleep apnea causes?” Basically, it is due to your airway becoming obstructed during sleep. This can happen when your tongue and other soft tissues in the back of your throat relax as you sleep. They can drop back so much that your air supply is cut off.
When your airway becomes blocked, you’ll wake up long enough (often with a loud snort) to take in a few normal breaths. Then you’ll fall back to sleep until the next episode of sleep apnea occurs.
For severe sleep apnea sufferers, this cycle can repeat itself hundreds of times per night. If you think you, your partner, or your child have sleep apnea, it’s important to get the help you need sooner rather than later. Please check out the following resources:
