ALAMEDA, CA, July 16, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Do you find yourself tossing and turning all night long? Do you often feel like you barely get any sleep? Do you wake up feeling exhausted and not refreshed from a full night's sleep? Do you find yourself sleep throughout the day? Patients who have answered yes to all of these questions might be one of the 12-18 million Americans who are dealing with sleep apnea. Sometimes patients have already been diagnosed, but are seeking relief from their insufficient sleep woes. When a patient suffers from sleep apnea, Dr. Richard Marill, a dentist in Alameda, can help.
"Sleep apnea is usually a chronic problem that causes disruptions to your normal sleeping patterns. It often makes your breath shallow or it can cause pauses in your breath, which transition your body from deep sleep to light sleep," says Dr. Richard B. Marill, who treats sleep apnea in Alameda. "When your body moves into light sleep, the quality of sleep is greatly reduced, which leads to exhausted and excessive tiredness throughout the day."
So what can Alameda dentist, Dr. Marill, do to help relieve sleep apnea symptoms and offer better rest? Simple! Symptoms can be greatly reduced with the use of oral appliance therapy. For sleep apnea patients, Dr. Marill highly recommends an oral device that helps move the jaw forward while a patient is sleeping. Since the jaw is moved forward, it moves the tongue forward as well, which keeps it from moving to the back of the throat. This greatly reduces the chance of an obstruction.
While there are other ways of dealing with sleep apnea, they are often a bit more invasive than just using an oral appliance. If a patient is looking for relief from their sleep apnea symptoms but they don't want to deal with surgery after surgery, then it's worth it to see if oral appliance therapy will work.
While sleep apnea is still considered a medical condition and should be diagnosed by a family physician or general practitioner, Dr. Richard Marill, an Alameda dentist, is available to help should a patient find relief if oral appliance therapy is the best option for treatment. Dr. Marill and his team of dental professionals at World Class Smile Center will fit, adjust and monitor the oral device to make sure that everything feels comfortable and is working as efficiently as possible.
Patients who have been dealing with sleep apnea for a while and have tried other treatments with no relief, it might be time to consider making an appointment with your Alameda dentist, Dr. Marill.
