Sleep apnea and snoring are more than just an annoyance for your bed partner. These problems can be serious health-wise and could even be deadly. Sleep apnea can cause chronic fatigue, high blood pressure, and difficulty during the day due to your lack of rest. Luckily, we at Montz and Maher Dental Group offer sleep apnea and snoring therapy.
Symptoms of Sleep Apnea
If you or a loved one is experiencing the following symptoms, sleep apnea may be the culprit:
- Loud snoring.
- Frequent waking.
- Chronic fatigue.
- Mood swings.
- Difficulty concentrating.
- Sore throat in the morning.
These may also be symptomatic of other sleep or emotional disorders. This is why it’s very important you seek professional advice from our practice. We work together with sleep centers in the area to find the source of your problems. If you do have sleep apnea, we can provide a treatment that will help you stop snoring.
SomnoDent for Sleep Apnea and Snoring
Many patients find that the CPAP breathing machine works wonders for their sleep apnea. For patients who need CPAP alternatives, we can provide you with a custom-made intraoral sleep apnea appliance that is worn throughout the night.
At Montz and Maher Dental Group, we rely on SomnoDent appliances for the treatment of sleep apnea and snoring. SomnoDent snoring mouthpieces are custom-made and comfortable, which is important because you wear it during sleep.
Thanks to the comfort of the SomnoDent appliance, the majority of patients comply with therapy, leading to astounding success rates.
At-Home Sleep Testing
Before sleep apnea treatment can begin, we recommend at home sleep testing. Home sleep testing eliminates long sleep center waiting periods and results in a more timely and efficient diagnosis of your disorder.
Of the approximately 3.5 million diagnostic obstructive sleep apnea tests ordered each year, about 80% of these tests are appropriate for home sleep testing. Home sleep tests are more affordable than other sleep studies.
At home sleep testing is more accurate as well as affordable and convenient. Sleep testing performed in your natural sleep environment facilitates more accurate testing results. We will also work with your insurance to help cover the costs of your sleep testing and sleep apnea treatments.
