Why Sleep Apnea Treatment Matters
Over 20 million Americans are currently suffering from sleep apnea and another 20 million are dealing with other sleep breathing disorders. Altogether, more than 10% of the American population simply isn’t sleeping well at night, leaving them vulnerable to both mental and physical problems. When left untreated, sleep apnea patients typically have to deal with constant fatigue, mood swings, trouble focusing, and elevated blood pressure. When all of these combine, a person’s quality of life and even mortality are severely threatened.
Fortunately, all of these issues can be easily avoided by simply getting treatment, which is exactly what you’ll find here at Sleep Better Appliances.
How Can a Dentist Help with Sleep Apnea?
This is a very common question that we get every day, and it’s very fair. How can a dentist actually help you sleep better? The key comes from realizing the sleep apnea actually stems from how the mouth, throat, and airway work together. The kind of doctor that best understands this part of the body? A dentist. Furthermore, a sleep dentist like Dr. Striebel has spent hundreds of hours learning about how to use oral appliances to correct the issues stemming from sleep apnea. Working alongside qualified sleep doctors, he’s able to identify the source of a person’s sleep problems and provide a customized solution that works almost instantly.
