This Is Your Sleep Apnea Wake-Up Call!

Welcome to the Perrigo Dental Care blog!

In our Hoover, Alabama dentists’ office, we tend to take a comprehensive approach to dentistry. That’s because we know that maintaining good health involves a lot more than just cleaning teeth. And there are so many issues that our patients will deal with over the course of their lives that are bigger than cavities.

In fact, we treat folks all the time for a condition that impacts countless U.S. citizens every year: sleep apnea.

Could You Have Sleep Apnea?

Even if you have heard of it, you may not know what sleep apnea entails, until you find yourself confronted with its symptoms.

So what is it? Sleep apnea is a dental-related sleep disorder. And we’ll explain how it can be addressed with dental solutions. Basically, the main thing you need to know is that sleep apnea obstructs your airways while you are deep in sleep and screws up your life.

Your body won’t like the oxygen deprivation one bit. Accordingly, you will make a frantic attempt to push through this roadblock. Because, on a subconscious level, you will be struggling to breathe, your sleep cycles will be disrupted big-time. That means that your body will not be properly rested in the morning even though you may have been in bed for more than your fair share of nighttime hours.

Telltale Signs Of Sleep Apnea

Have you ever been told that you snore like a freight train? Have you ever woken up suddenly gasping for breath? Are your days marked by sleepiness and lethargy? Are you assaulted with headaches? Do you feel like you are in a fog? Then you really ought to look into a diagnosis for sleep apnea! It is always better to act sooner than later, when you see the warning signs unfolding in your life.

Here’s the thing: if you fail to act, you will begin to display irritability, anxiety, short-term memory loss, and disorientation.

Those things are bad, but it gets worse. Eventually, you will put yourself at a greater risk for heart disease, diabetes, stroke, weight gain, and decreased libido. None of that is appealing, right? Additionally, your snoring will disrupt the sleep patterns of everyone else in your house. And they will grow to resent you for it.

So, what can be done? 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. We’ll need to confirm the diagnosis before anything can be done to help.

Fortunately, this study will tell us whether or not you are dealing with sleep apnea. And if you do have a mild to moderate case of sleep apnea, we can create an oral appliance that you can wear to keep your air passageways open all night.

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

Oral Appliance Therapy In Hoover, AL

One thing that doctors often prescribe for sleep apnea sufferers is a CPAP machine that forces air where it needs to go. The problem is that there’s only about a 30% compliance rate with the CPAP machine, because it is so invasive.

That’s why we come at the problem of sleep apnea from a different perspective. And the great 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.

Here’s the deal: once we decipher the results of your at-home sleep apnea study, you will get an oral appliance prescribed and custom-built. This appliance is comfortable and much like a mouth guard. 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 incident.

You will get better rest, and all of your other symptoms will be put to rest as well.

Wake Up To A Better Life!
