At Lakeside Smiles, our Beechwood general dentist goes beyond the typical level of care that most others in the field do. Our patients are often surprised to find out that in addition to the common dental services they can find at other dentists, we can also provide patients with treatment for sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a condition that often goes undiagnosed, which can be dangerous. If you are often waking up feeling fatigued, if you are constantly irritable and tired, if you often get headaches in the morning, and if your partner complains about your loud snoring at night, there is a good chance you may be suffering from sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea is a condition in which your breathing is interrupted for varying periods of time throughout the night. It can be very disturbing to your regular sleep patterns, leaving you feeling tired and irritable in the mornings. If you think you might be suffering from sleep apnea, the only true way to diagnose it is to undergo a medically supervised sleep study. If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, our Beechwood general dentist can help you combat your symptoms and sleep more soundly each night with the use of a customized oral appliance designed for people with sleep apnea. These small, non-invasive appliances work by preventing your tongue and the soft tissues in the back of your throat from blocking off your airflow at night. Patients often report noticeable changes in their levels of fatigue and irritability after using their customized sleep apnea appliances from our Beechwood general dentist. We would love to provide you with similar results here at Lakeside Smiles.
