Matteson, IL (PRWEB) August 24, 2017
Dr. Robert Durr, DMD, now offers sleep apnea treatment to patients who struggle to get a good night’s sleep.
When people hear that someone has sleep apnea, they assume that sleep apnea only causes patients to snore loudly at night. In reality, sleep apnea can cause serious health risks. While some people with sleep apnea rely on the loud and cumbersome CPAP machine, other people enjoy a more efficient treatment.
At Progressive Dental and Associates, patients can now receive a customized oral appliance treatment to prevent sleep apnea. The symptoms of sleep apnea can include a lack of sleep, drowsiness throughout the day, loud snoring, weight gain, being unable to stay awake and cessation of breathing during sleep. Dr. Durr customizes an oral appliance, similar to a mouth guard or retainer, which prevents the tongue from falling backwards and stops the teeth from grinding together.
The appliance is small and easy to travel with, which makes it popular with many patients. The team at Progressive Dental and Associates will ensure to customize the appliance to each individual patient’s teeth for a perfect fit. This way, the patient will not have to feel any discomfort while wearing the appliance.
While there are more intensive treatments for sleep apnea, such as surgery, Dr. Durr recommends an oral appliance and non-surgical treatments first. Patients may not even realize that a dentist can offer treatment options for sleep apnea. Dr. Durr can keep the process fairly simple to help patients continue receiving a good night’s sleep with an oral appliance that does not hurt, fall out or damage the teeth at night.
If you are concerned that you or a loved one may have sleep apnea, call Progressive Dental and Associates to see if their sleep apnea treatment is the right move. There is no need to let sleep apnea get in the way of everyday activities and increase health risks.
