Signs of Sleep Apnea

Not sure if you know this or not, but SLEEP APNEA is a condition that actually effects approximately 18 Million Americans. Yes, it’s true. Long Island Dental Excellence right here in Rockville Centre, Long Island has been treating Sleep Apnea with great success.

What exactly is Sleep Apnea? It could be as simple as difficulty sleeping or difficulty staying asleep for reasons you don’t know…. Or perhaps your partner is keeping you awake night after night from constant snoring, choking or noisy gasping for air. Sounds scary.

Getting a good night’s sleep is critical to good health:

    Sleep helps your brain work properly – keeps healthy brain function and emotional well-being. Studies show that getting a good night’s sleep improves learning. It also helps you pay attention, make decisions and be creative.
    Sleep also plays an important role in your physical health - Ongoing sleep deficiency is linked to an increase risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and stroke. Lack of sleep can also lead to obesity. A good sleep supports healthy growth and development. Your immune system relies on sleep to stay healthy.
    Quality sleep helps you function well during the day and stay safe! People who are sleep deficient are less productive on the job, in their personal relationships and at school. They take longer to finish tasks, have slower reaction time and make more mistakes.

It’s so important to know the signs of Sleep Apnea:

  1. Loud Snoring
  2. Choking or Gasping During Sleep
  3. Insomnia and Anxiety
  4. Disturbed Sleep – inability to fall back to sleep
  5. Teeth Grinding
  6. Waking Up with a Sore Throat/Dry Throat
  7. Weight Gain
  8. Exhaustion
  9. Moody
  10. Headaches

If you or your partner has several of these symptoms, WE CAN HELP. More and more people are turning to their Dentist for a solution that is less invasive and more comfortable; we offer an oral appliance to reposition the mouth and jaw to improve airflow. It is typically tolerated well, better than the alternative of the mask devise that covers your nose and/or mouth while you sleep.

The Dentists at Long Island Dental Excellence have had extensive training on the treatment of Sleep Apnea and are happy to answer any questions you may have. A simple treatment can seriously improve your overall health and quality of life. KNOW THE SIGNS OF SLEEP APNEA and SLEEP WELL AGAIN.
