See How Our Treatment Can Help You Sleep Better
Our first step with treating sleep apnea patients, or people that we may think have sleep apnea is a sleep test. We have a very simple at-home sleep test that we can utilize. It’s done 100% digitally that we can send home with the patient, they can utilize that gear. And it sends us all the information we need regarding the patient’s sleep. If we find that somebody does have upper airway resistance syndrome, or sleep apnea, we have a number of tools that we can use anything from NightLase to a mandibular advancement device. Or whether we need to seek a physician’s help and go with a CPAP machine.
Sleep apnea is really an epidemic, at least a quarter of the country suffers from. And is something that increases our chances of a heart attack and stroke by a factor of three. So, it is very serious and we look forward to helping you at Synergy Dental Center.
