Sleep Apnea & Your Prosthodontist Can Change Your Life

Your first thought may not be, “I need a prosthodontist,” when you wake up in the middle of the night gasping for air. But perhaps it should be. Dr.Judith Strutz and her team have been working to give patients back their lives for years, focusing on teeth and health and also when they suffer from sleep apnea. After an initial consultation, exam and discussion, together you and Dr. Strutz can create a plan that will change how you sleep and give you back your rest at night. 

Without sleep your life can take a drastic downward turn. Unfortunately, quality sleep is necessary for you to live a healthy, happy life. Sleep not only impacts the way you attitude overall, lack of sleep can negatively impact how your body’s organs function. Lack of quality sleep can contribute to aches and pains in the body. It can decrease your body’s, natural healing processes, which can cause you to feel achy all over, and it can put increased pressure on your heart and lungs. 
Years ago, the only options that were available were noisy machines that were uncomfortable. Now we know that many times dental appliances can be placed in the mouth to help reposition the tongue.  
 This repositioning of the tongue will prevent it from falling to the back of the throat and cutting off the airway. While there are more than 80 different types of appliances that can be created for this purpose, one of the important reasons to visit Dr. Strutz and her team, is to get the one dental device that fits correctly in your mouth, will reposition the tongue well and be the most comfortable. “Because we know that if it’s not comfortable, you won’t wear it. And wearing it can save your life,” says Dr. Strutz.  

A dental device can restore your sleep pattern to a restful night’s sleep and change your life for the better. For more information contact Dr. Strutz & her team today.
