Dr. Rick Brar, dentist in Sleepy Hollow, offers dental solutions to treat sleep apnea and snoring.
SLEEPY HOLLOW, IL, September 29, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Sleep apnea is a condition in which a person stops breathing while sleeping, often dozens of times. The pauses in breath are called apneas. One of the most common symptoms of sleep apnea is the notoriously unpleasant snoring. Snoring causes night disturbances for others and sometimes for the person who snores. Other symptoms include sleep disturbances and drowsiness during the day.
One of the easiest ways to combat sleep apnea is to get fitted for an oral appliance by a trained provider. Dr. Brar is a highly skilled general dentist with the experience required to treat patients with sleep apnea in Sleepy Hollow.
"Many people want to treat sleep apnea to stop snoring," said Dr. Brar, Sleepy Hollow dentist. "Snoring is a nuisance and concern for many, but sleep apnea is so much more problematic. It is shown to increase the risk of high blood pressure and cause other complications depending on the overall health of the patient."
Sleep apnea therapy is a simple process. An oral appliance is made to fit the patient's mouth. The oral appliance is worn while sleeping to properly position the lower jaw and tongue. Sleep apnea can happen at any age but research has shown it affects smokers, males and individuals who are overweight or over 40 most often. For patients who smoke, quitting and getting fitted for an oral appliance will help immensely.
