Get the Restful Sleep You Need
Personalized Treatment for Sleep Apnea
Do you wake unrefreshed, have trouble concentrating, feel fatigued during the day, or have been told you snore? These are all common signs of sleep apnea, a dangerous condition characterized by frequent pauses in breathing during sleep. Sleep apnea occurs most often due to the tongue or soft tissues that fall back during sleep and block air from getting through the airway and into the lungs. If this condition continues undiagnosed for many years, risk for complications associated with chronic poor sleep and systemic health problems increases, including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and even stroke. For day-to-day life, seeking treatment for sleep apnea can improve your mood, energy levels, and overall health, while reducing or even eliminating chronic snoring. Thankfully, proven protocols exist today that can effectively treat sleep apnea symptoms! Our dentists are trained in the non-surgical, six-step sleep protocol as developed by Dr. Jeff Rouse and taught through Spear® Education. If you’ve been experiencing any of the following symptoms, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with our experienced team right away. We can help you get restful sleep and reduce your risk for other complications with our personalized treatment.
Signs of Sleep Apnea
Breathe Easier without Surgery
If you’ve been officially diagnosed with sleep apnea, we can begin the six-step sleep protocol to evaluate and treat your symptoms. This is an interactive process that involves understanding your needs and matching a dental appliance to ultimately help you breathe healthier and feel more rested. As part of your treatment, we’ll first consider nasal breathing therapy and other techniques to improve airflow. If we believe you’d benefit from an oral appliance, we’ll follow a trial-and-error system that allows you to test different types of nightguards until you find one that works for you. We’ll then provide a final appliance from the trial nightguard that helps you experience better breathing and restful sleep. If you are intolerant of C-PAP machines or have not found relief elsewhere, we can help! Our ultimate goal in treating sleep apnea is finding a solution that works best for you so you can sleep better, live healthier, and reduce your risk for health complications.
