Learn More About the Signs & Symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Airways (OSA)
Because sleep apnea is a disease that affects over 18 million adults in the U.S., Drs. Woldman, Rizman, and Simpson continue their efforts to help patients treat the problem. Through continued study and a dedication to patient education these Hoffman Estates dentists work with patients to resolve this sleep disorder. With side effects linked to diseases such as heart problems, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes and depression, sleep apnea is a problem that should not be ignored.
Catch Sleep Apnea Symptoms Early
One of the first noticeable symptoms of sleep apnea is loud snoring. When spouses or other family members complain about the noise, it is often a sign of concern. Not all snoring cases equate to sleep apnea, but it is always best to have it checked out. Talk to your dentist about your snoring or other symptoms like morning headaches and overtiredness. Sleep apnea is diagnosed through an at-home sleep study using a convenient take-home diagnostic unit. If you think you may have a problem with sleep apnea, don’t put off talking to your dentist or primary doctor.
A More Comfortable Sleep Apnea Solution
Drs. Woldman, Rizman, and Simpson have helped many patients who have tried the traditional CPAP machine, the more traditional solution prescribed by primary physicians. Many people find these machines uncomfortable and would prefer to not use them. Dental mouth guard devices help treat sleep apnea in a less invasive and more comfortable way than the CPAP. The dental oral device, similar to a retainer, will help reduce and prevent sleep apnea side-effects.
Drs. Woldman, Rizman, and Simpson find that many sleep apnea patients find more success with the dental appliance than the CPAP. The biggest complaint of the CPAP is that users are too uncomfortable for a restful sleep so they go without using it. This intolerance does nothing to help. Even people with more severe cases who would get the most benefit out of a CPAP if worn, do benefit from using the dental mouth guard rather than going without any help at all.
Why choose sleep apnea treatment from your dentist?
- CPAP machine is too uncomfortable for a restful sleep.
- Most insurances will cover the cost (call to find out if you may qualify)
- Need help to avoid major health risks attributed to sleep apnea
- Dental appliance travels much easier than a CPAP for uninterrupted treatment when not at home
