Stop Ignoring the Snoring

Is your sex life on the downswing? Now that we have your attention, do either you or your partner snore? Has someone moved to another bedroom? Have you been told that you gasp for air or suddenly stop breathing while sleeping? Are you a side sleeper? Are you chronically fatigued or could you use a nap in the middle of the day? Are you grinding your teeth? Are you being treated for hypertension or diabetes?

Long Island Dental Excellence now screens for Sleep Apnea. This is a potentially deadly disorder that affects 1 in 5 adults and is no laughing matter. The MTA has even made it mandatory that all workers be tested for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) with required monthly monitoring due to the recent occurrence of multiple fatal accidents. If you answer “yes” to one or more of the questions above, the next step is to schedule a simple and painless sleep test. The days of going to a hospital or sleep lab are over - we have aligned ourselves with a medical group that can perform an at-home sleep test for you.

For those diagnosed with Sleep Apnea or chronic snoring issues, cutting edge treatment is available here at Long Island Dental Excellence. For many years, CPAP therapy (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) was the only treatment option for Sleep Apnea sufferers. For all those that are CPAP non-compliant or have mild to moderate symptoms, Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) is a great alternative. OAT utilizes a custom-made oral appliance similar to a night guard that repositions the lower jaw. It’s painless, effective, comfortable, non-invasive, discreet, and only needs to be worn when you sleep.

Fabrication of the appliance is routine and only takes two visits. Patients have had some dramatic and impressive results - reporting better sleep, feeling more rested in the morning, and improvements in overall health.

If you have been ignoring the snoring NOW is the time to find a solution. Call us for more information.
