This Hoover Dentist’s Office Treats Sleep Apnea

Welcome to the Perrigo Dental Care blog!

Today we want to talk about an issue that affects millions of Americans each day: sleep apnea. What is sleep apnea? Sleep apnea is a condition that literally takes your breath away, but not in a good way. You see, sleep apnea blocks your air passageways while you are fast asleep.

As such, you will be busy struggling to breathe on a subconscious level and your sleep cycles will be thrown way out of whack. That all means that your body will be sleep-deprived the next day even though you may have been in bed for more than enough hours of the night.

If you think you might be afflicted with this condition (read the next section for warning signs), we are happy to provide a home sleep study that you can use in your natural environment rather than having to go off to a clinical sleep center. Either way, we’ll need to confirm the issue at-hand before anything can be resolved.

Luckily, this study will indicate whether or not you are dealing with sleep apnea, and you won’t even have to leave the comforts of your own home. As usual, around here, we try to make it as easy as possible for you to address your health concerns.

If you have a mild to moderate case of sleep apnea, we can set you up with an oral appliance you can wear to keep your airways open all night. Read on for more details about that sort of solution.

For severe cases, we will try to connect you with a solution that makes more sense.

But we are getting ahead of ourselves.

Warning Signs

Do you snore like a buzz saw? Have you ever woken up suddenly gasping for breath? Are your days characterized by sleepiness and lack of energy? Are you plagued by headaches? Do you feel like you are in a mental fog? Then you should explore a diagnosis for sleep apnea!

If you don’t take action you will likely exhibit irritability, anxiety, short-term memory loss, and disorientation. Worse yet, you will put yourself at a greater risk for heart disease, diabetes, stroke, weight gain, and decreased libido. Sounds awful, right? Plus, your snoring alone will drive your loved ones bananas.

Our Oral Appliance Therapy Can Help You Take Back Your Life

One thing that doctors often prescribe for sleep apnea sufferers is a CPAP machine. That’s all well and good. The problem is that there’s only about a 30% compliance rate with the CPAP machine.

In spite of all the dangers that sleep apnea poses, most people just can’t handle the mask. And, honestly, they feel like they’re Darth Vader or Kylo Ren when they’re putting the machine on or it makes that sound. Plus, many folks feel constricted by having that mask on their face all night.

In our office, we come at the problem from a different angle. And the cool thing about the snore guards and sleep apnea devices we offer is that they are small, unobtrusive, and every bit as effective at treating sleep apnea as a CPAP machine would be.

Here’s how it works: once we decode the results of your at-home sleep apnea study, you will get an oral appliance prescribed and custom-fitted. This appliance is comfortable and more akin to a mouth guard than anything else.

What makes it successful? Your oral appliance will adjust your lower jaw in such a way as to keep your air passageways open, allowing you to breathe through the night without difficulty.

Then you will get better rest, and all of your other related problems will disappear!

If that sounds like a good plan for you, call Perrigo Dental Care at 205-545-8007 to request your complimentary sleep apnea consultation!
