We treat a lot of sleep apnea, sleep obstructive patients in our office. The real reason is sleep is one of the most important things to stay well. We recognize that for being consistent with our overall view of total health for our patients. We will ask them sleep questions with regard to when they come in for their normal routine visits. A lot of times we can diagnose it off of just a simple CAT scan that we have here in the office. Their airways, as well as with their proper clinical evaluation, allow patients to have the options to address their sleep issues. We know that that will contribute well to their total overall health.
Symptoms of Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder that causes you to stop breathing during periods of sleep and jerk awake due to your body’s response to the lack of oxygen. This can happen many times throughout the night, leaving you without the rest your body needs. Here are some symptoms to look out for:
- Chronic Snoring
- Extreme Fatigue
- Mood Swings
- Sore Throat
How Tocci Dental Associates Can Treat Sleep Apnea
The trusted Wellesley, MA dentist and entire team at Tocci Dental Associates will make sure you get the care you need to get back to sleep fast. Here is how we can help you with our sleep apnea treatment.
- Proper Diagnosis – Everything starts with an accurate diagnosis. If our exam and review of your medical history reveals you might have sleep apnea, we’ll prescribe a sleep test. If this test comes back positive for sleep apnea, we then move on to the next phase of your treatment.
- BPA-Free Custom-Fit Sleep Device – We want to eliminate the blockage from occurring in your airway. Many people rely on a CPAP machine and mask to do this. Our non-CPAP, custom sleep appliance pushes your lower jaw out slightly to make sure your airway stays open throughout the night. No blockage plus no jerking awake means you sleep the whole night through.
