If you are one of the millions of Americans who suffer from a sleep disorder, finding relief can sometimes feel like a confusing and overwhelming process. Undiagnosed sleep apnea can take up to a decade or more off of your life expectancy.

At Greeley Dental Care, Dr. Taher Dhoon makes it possible for you to have improved oral health, improved overall health, and a good night’s sleep using non-invasive and convenient oral appliance therapy.

Oral Appliance for Sleep Apnea

Does your partner complain about your snoring disturbing their sleep? Do you have breathing issues during your sleep? These are signs of Obstructive Sleep apnea that often go unnoticed. OSA can not only trouble your relationship but also make you vulnerable to health complications. An oral appliance for sleep apnea can help guide your lower jaw to open your airway and allow free flow of oxygen. This will restore your sound sleep you need to stay healthy.

COMMON SIGNS OF OSA OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA

Often, the first sign that you suffer from sleep apnea is a complaint from your partner of snoring or concern that you stop breathing during your sleep. Not only is this troublesome when it comes to the intimacy in your relationship, but it can also cause serious health implications including:

  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Mood disorders
  • Daytime fatigue
  • Obesity
  • Complications with diabetes
  • Early death, by twelve years on average
  • GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disorder)
  • Increased risk of a motor vehicle accident, by up to 19 times
  • Increased risk of cancer
  • Dementia
  • Depression

At Greeley Dental Care, we offer a take-home, inexpensive sleep test to monitor your nighttime sleep patterns. Once the device gathers your data, we send it for analysis by a certified sleep specialist and will determine the best way to treat you based on your specific condition.
