Did you know that our team at Skyline Family Dental can you sleep better? Sleep disorders like sleep apnea are caused by an oral issue and Dr. Overholtzer and his team have the skill, knowledge, and experience to treat and correct those issues. As a result, you can enjoy a higher level of oral health, and a better night’s rest.
What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
Obstructive sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder where the throat muscles relax too much while the patient is sleeping and cause the airway to collapse. After the airway has collapsed, the brain fails to get enough oxygen and wakes the body up enough to cause the airway to open again. Those with sleep apnea can wake up hundreds of times during the night without realizing it. The loss of oxygen can cause health problems, and people with sleep apnea are unable to reach the deep sleep state that is required for full rejuvenation.
Patients with sleep apnea:
- Feel tired during the day, even after they’ve gotten a full night’s rest.
- Snore loudly, and often affect the sleep patterns of their partners.
- Feel lethargic and are often less productive during the day.
- Can develop serious health problems if the sleep apnea is left untreated.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
At Skyline Family Dental, we treat sleep apnea at its source to alleviate sleep apnea symptoms and help our patients get a great night’s rest again. After sleep apnea treatment, our patients can enjoy a greater level of overall health and well-being. Patients feel more productive and confident, and are able to tackle problems easier when they’ve had enough rest. Sleep apnea treatment can even help eliminate snoring and help your partner get a better night’s sleep too.
We can use our i-CAT technology to better diagnose and treat sleep apnea. The i-CAT takes full, 3D scans of your jaw and skull, in order to identify where the problem areas are and what treatment would be best. Our treatment helps patients breathe easier during the night and alleviates sleep apnea symptoms.
