Is your snoring so bad that you wake up your partner or even yourself? Do you feel exhausted day after day? Then you should visit Total Dental Solutions for Adults for Naples, FL sleep apnea care from Dr. George Hoop.George A. Hoop, DDS, PA on Sleep Apnea Treatment Read Transcript
Sleep apnea can be a very big problem for a lot of people. And I think one of the biggest problems out there is it's so frequently not diagnosed. I have sleep apnea myself and for years I was wondering why I was so tired. And finally when I was talking to a friend of mine who was diagnosed with having sleep apnea and we compared symptoms, I realized that I had a problem. The gold standard to treat sleep apnea in moderate to severe cases is oftentimes a CPAP machine. There's a hood that you wear at night and air is pushed through that hood under pressure. For those patients who can't get used to wearing a CPAP machine, or won't use a CPAP machine for whatever reasons ... Some people are just self conscious about it. A lot of women don't want to wear a CPAP machine in front of their spouse. There are oral appliances that we can make that actually will position the jaw at night and open the airway and relieve the problems that they're having with the sleep apnea.
We provide sleep apnea treatment so you can:
- Sleep soundly at night.
- Feel rested and refreshed during the day.
- Improve your mood, concentration, and productivity.
- Protect your overall health.
Don’t suffer from constant fatigue! Call our Naples, FL dental office today at 239-734-7737 to schedule a consultation.
Recognize Sleep Apnea Symptoms So You Can Get Help
Sleep apnea is characterized by repeated interruptions of normal breathing during sleep. Because it affects the oxygen levels in your blood, this sleep disorder can lead to other serious health issues if left untreated.
Because it’s easy to mistake sleep apnea symptoms for other conditions, you need help from a trained professional for a proper diagnosis. If you can recognize the symptoms of sleep apnea, you’ll know that it’s time to get help from Dr. Hoop and our team.
Here are some signs to look for:
- Loud, chronic snoring
- Headaches in the morning
- A dry or sore throat when you wake up even if you’re not sick
- Waking suddenly during the night gasping for air
- Daily fatigue
- Mood swings or irritability
- Problems with memory or concentration
- Difficulty staying awake while driving
Let Us Help You Sleep Soundly & Stay Healthy
If you receive a sleep apnea diagnosis, Dr. Hoop can provide you with a custom mouthguard or another oral appliance to end your restless nights. Mouthguards and oral appliances slightly shift the position of your jaw while you sleep to keep your airway open and allow you to breathe easily.
Unlike a CPAP machine, our custom mouthguards are compact, comfortable, and quiet so you and your partner can sleep soundly. When you finally get the nightly rest you need, you’ll feel more energized and productive throughout the day and live a healthier life overall.
