Here at My Dentist in Plano, we screen each and every one of our new patients and existing patients for sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a silent killer. During the course of a good night's sleep, or what you might think is a good night's sleep, you might stop breathing several times throughout the night or even dozens of times or hundreds of times throughout the night. Oxygen is a good thing for our bodies, and when you deprive yourself of oxygen many, many times throughout the night, it can put great stresses on your cardiovascular system, your digestive system, and that you can have bad, bad acid reflux during the middle of the night.
It can also affect the way that your body synthesizes and processes sugars, and it can adversely affect diabetic patients, and it can make their insulin cycles cycle in a way that will cause them to gain more weight. Once we discover that a patient has a sleep apnea problem, we work in conjunction with a medical diagnostic technician, a medical doctor who diagnoses sleep apnea, and we can devise a sleep apnea device that you can easily wear at night. And it will open up your airway and allow you to sleep better, to breathe better, to get better oxygenation throughout your body throughout the night.
And another great side benefit is that it interrupts and almost completely can alleviate bad, loud snoring, which can be disruptive to a sleeping partner.
- Get accurate measurements of your airway with our i3D Smart CT machine, which may be covered by medial insurance.
- Get a take-home test to monitor your snoring and sleep patterns.
- Have your results reviewed by a sleep specialist for possible diagnosis.
- Wear a custom oral appliance to keep your upper and lower jaw open for easy breathing.
- Stop snoring so you and your significant other can regain the intimacy you’ve lost to this sleep disorder.
Avoid the Drawbacks of a CPAP Machine
As widely recommended as CPAP machines are for sleep apnea treatment, nearly half of those who have one admit they never use it. That’s because a CPAP machine, although effective, isn’t the easiest treatment method for many apnea sufferers.
Some of the drawbacks of this form of treatment include:
- It requires you to sleep near an electrical outlet to keep it powered all night.
- It can be noisy, making it difficult for you and your partner to sleep.
- It moves air through a mask attached to a hose, which many find uncomfortable.
- It’s difficult to travel with on business trips and vacations.
Many patients prefer a more comfortable alternative, which is why we offer custom oral appliances to effectively treat symptoms of sleep apnea. We work with a medical billing agency to help decide if it’s best to use your medical benefits for your sleep appliance.
