Did you know you don’t have to suffer with sleep apnea? Night after night you may toss and turn or go through your days drinking large amounts of coffee only to feel tired the next day. You may snore, or wake up your partner in the middle of the night because you stop breathing. You don’t have live with these symptoms. You can stand up to sleep apnea and say no more. Dr. Judy Strutz, a San Bernardino prosthodontist and sleep apnea dentist says, one of the first things patients say to her is that they didn’t know they could get help.
This procedure begins like other dental visits with Dr.Strutz, she’ll complete a comprehensive exam that evaluates whether you suffer from airway challenges and then will recommend a home sleep test. Once it is determined that you would benefit from a dental sleep apnea appliance, Dr. Strutz will determine what type of dental device is best for you. Now Dr.Strutz and her team can customize an appliance to fit your mouth and open up the airway. This will allow you to breathe in the air you need during the night, thus preventing you from waking up.
Sleep apnea can impact your ability to reach rem sleep. The longer you go without this level of sleep the more damage that it causes. You may fall asleep while driving, lose your job and reach a deep depression where you see no way out. Being overly tired can cause hallucinations and problems with focus and attention.
