Sleep Apnea And Heart Disease
Sleep apnea is bad enough. But a correlation has recently been established between sleep apnea and heart disease. Time to wake up and get your health back on track!
Sleep Apnea And Sleepiness
Another common symptom of sleep apnea is daytime sleepiness. If you aren’t getting good, quality sleep because of your apnea, then you may be suffering from sleep deprivation, too.
Sleep Apnea And Snoring
Of course, sleep apnea isn’t one of those problems that only affects you. If you have obstructive sleep apnea (the most common type of the apnea), then you probably snore a lot. That won’t help you win any popularity contests at home. You won’t get good sleep and your loved ones will also be forced to suffer too.
This Dentist Can Help
There is a lot to consider when you are suffering from sleep apnea. But relief is available at the dentist’s office. Well, at least it is at ours! If you are have been diagnosed with sleep apnea recently, your doctor may have recommended that you use a CPAP. But if you find you are one of the 40 or so percent who can’t or won’t use the machine, Beaumont Family Dentistry can help.
Here’s the deal: obstructive sleep apnea occurs because your airways become closed off when you are asleep. For patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea, we can create a mouthpiece that you can wear instead of your CPAP. This mouthpiece works by repositioning your jaw so that your airways stay open while you sleep.
You should know that Dr. Takacs is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. She also completed a residency at Tufts University on sleep medicine.
If you come to Beaumont Family Dentistry, you will be coming to an office that wants to help you (and your partner) sleep better, and you will be treated by people who understand how to treat your problem. At our specialized office, the TMJ And Sleep Dentistry Center of Central Kentucky, LLC, we offer sleep apnea solutions that work and are comfortable. Oral appliances can shift your jaw alignment to keep your airway open so you rest better and stop snoring!
