A Good Night’s Sleep Can Change Save Your Life!

It’s no big secret that a good night’s sleep can help you feel energized, let you function at your best, and keep your entire body healthy. But what happens when we aren’t getting the sleep we need? How does our snoring, gasping for air, and constant fatigue impact our partners? Unfortunately, one of the worst things that can happen during sleep goes undiagnosed, can genuinely affect the ones we love, and even be deadly. Continue reading to take our quiz and find out if you’re at risk.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when your airway is obstructed during sleep, preventing you from breathing regularly. Those with OSA stop breathing for several consecutive seconds multiple times each night. The repeated lack of oxygen takes its toll on the body, making those who suffer more likely to experience the following:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Auto and work accidents
  • Mood disorders such as anxiety and depression

Ultimately, these symptoms or the OSA itself can be deadly, making diagnosis more critical that some may realize.

The Symptoms

One of the most common symptoms of sleep apnea is snoring. If you or your loved one snore, you’d be well-advised to see if you have any of the other symptoms, such as:

  • Waking up gasping for air
  • Waking with a dry throat and mouth
  • Excessive daytime lethargy
  • Unexplained moodiness
  • Morning headaches

If you’ve checked off anything on this list, you may consider participating in a sleep study to find out for sure if you suffer with OSA or have some other health condition that may be preventing you from living your best life. If you do happen to be diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, then I just might be able to help.

The Solution

When many people think of sleep apnea, they picture a CPAP machine. CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) treatment prevents the airway from collapsing by delivering a constant stream of air through a mask that’s attached to a machine via tube. While the treatment can be effective, sleeping with a cumbersome apparatus can be uncomfortable. Another effective treatment method is a nighttime oral appliance, which is where I come in. I can customize a device that will comfortably reposition your jaw and tongue, preventing your airway from collapsing as you sleep. The device will be fitted to your unique bite and shape, so it won’t prevent you from sleeping. Best of all, it could literally save your life. If you’re concerned that you may be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea, contact my office to schedule an appointment. Together we can find a solution for your sleepless nights and hopefully help you enjoy a long and healthy life.

The folks at Wayne Dental Care are fantastic. They have a friendly staff who are always welcoming, fantastic doctors (I've been a longtime patient of Dr. Handel) that make long and tedious procedures much easier to tolerate. From cleaning to implants, this is a terrific place. They are also fantastic about dealing with emergencies. I highly recommend.

I have received great care here over the past 14 years, both preventative and emergency. The team is very professional and caring. Most recently, Dr. Brenner made time for me on an emergency basis to fix a broken tooth. He did a great job, and I left feeling 100 percent better than when I arrived.

I've been a patient at Wayne Dental Care for over ten years, and several of my family members are patients as well. The dental hygienists and front desk staff are terrific, friendly and helpful. I am always provided with a comprehensive written treatment plan for anything not covered by insurance, so I understand my costs. I always feel welcomed when I come in the front door!

Accommodated my very fluctuating schedule and paid close attention to details of recommended services. Pre-checked recommended services for coverage and priced out in advance. Also discussed claiming as much in services as possible within the calendar year in order to take advantage of my annual benefit allowance. Very Satisfied with quality of service and attention to detail.
