TheRockfordDentist.com proudly announces that they now offer treatment for sleep apnea, a condition caused by abnormal breathing during sleep. Thousands of people suffer from this disorder without knowing about it. Now anyone can drop by the Rockford dental care to get the diagnosis and treatment they need to sleep soundly at night.
Putting an End to Daytime Fatigue
Dr. Anthony Benassi shares that sleep apnea can be a nightmare. Not only does it rob people of sound sleep at night, it also causes daytime fatigue. Sleep apnea is caused by either neurological control problems or respiratory obstruction.
TheRockfordDentist.com offers treatment for the latter. Dr. Benassi diagnoses the patient using polysomnogram, an overnight sleep test. It monitors the patient’s body functions while asleep. If the patient is positive for sleep apnea, he addresses the problem with an oral appliance.
The Continuous Positive Airway Pressure or CPAP is their first line of treatment for sleep apnea. This is a mask that delivers compressed air and maintains proper breathing during sleep. Patients wear the appliance when they sleep at night. Dr. Benassi can create a custom fit appliance for those who are uncomfortable with the CPAP or want an alternative method.
Improving Overall Health Condition
Sleep apnea caused by respiratory obstruction is common for people who are in poor physical shape. These patients are usually obese, chain-smokers, or alcoholics. According to Dr. Benassi, sleep apnea is symptomatic of the patients’ overall health condition. TheRockfordDentist.com not only offers the CPAP to cure the symptom; it also helps the patients develop a healthy lifestyle. This helps patients treat the disorder, improve their health, and prevent other diseases at the same time.
