At the office of Nathan Satler DDS, we offer a wide array of essential and valuable services. Among them are sleep apnea 10019 treatments. This disorder disrupts your breathing while you sleep, and can result in consequences both moderate (being tired during the day) and major (heart problems). Turn to our dental office for effective help with sleep apnea.
There are different forms of sleep apnea, but obstructive is the most common. Your breathing becomes shallow, maybe even stopping completely during your sleep cycle. This occurs repeatedly, possibly hundreds of times during the night. There are some very clear symptoms that are associated with sleep apnea. Among them are feeling tired during the day despite having had a full night’s rest, morning headaches, night sweats, dry mouth or sore throat when you wake up in the morning, waking up suddenly in the middle of the night with a gasping or choking sensation, and even sexual dysfunction. In addition, there are two indications for which you will need a bed partner to determine: snoring and obvious restlessness during sleep. There are risk factors that make sleep apnea more likely, such as being male, African-American, Hispanic, Pacific Islander, or a woman in menopause. The reality, though, is that anyone can suffer from sleep apnea. Fortunately, our Vashon Island dental care has solutions. Some lifestyle changes are very effective, like losing weight If you need to and giving up alcohol close to bedtime. You should also consider sleeping on your side instead of your back. Direct treatment for sleep apnea 10019 is available in the form of an oral appliance that you wear while you sleep. It assists in keeping your airway open, and thereby eliminating the symptoms.
If you have sleep apnea or suspect that you may, contact our office to arrange an appointment.
