We can help you get a great nights sleep
Sleep apnea is a silent killer. And it is something that more people are getting aware of these days. Sleep apnea is where your body never gets that restful sleep, and you’re not completely sleeping that entire six to eight hours of sleep that your body needs. And having sleep apnea can have an array of illness. It will have uncontrolled high blood pressure. People have hormonal imbalances, people who cannot lose weight, have constant headaches. We always treat the symptoms. You’re given blood pressure medication, you’re given blood sugar medications without properly understanding that the root cause of the problem is probably the patient not getting enough sleep.
So most when people understand this and they get a sleep study. They are prescribed a CPAP machine, which is a machine that pushes air into your mouth and through your nose and helps you sleep through the night. It’s not fun. It’s a noisy machine and it’s difficult to travel with. And there are patients who, although they’re prescribed it, they don’t use it, it’s there. So the sleep apnea is never treated, and they’re still not getting that comfortable sleep that they should be getting.
So if you’re not complying with your CPAP machine or you don’t like it, or if you have just mild to moderate sleep apnea, give us a call. Because there are oral appliances that we can make for you that is comfortable that will help you to get a better night’s sleep. And also make sure if you have health issues, like high blood pressure and diabetes and things that could be attributed to sleep apnea can definitely be treated.
