Sleep apnea being a dangerous condition, I think it is utterly important that SDB is properly diagnosed. This is what our free screening is about. We would like to help people know if they need treatment or not.
San Marcos, CA (PRWEB) February 27, 2014
Allred Dental, a San Marcos dentistry office, led by Jeffrey Allred D.D.S., offers free screenings for people experiencing breathing disorders and severe snoring during sleep.
“Snoring is detected when you cannot move air freely through your mouth and nose during sleep, because of a narrow airway. It can affect the quality of a person’s life, leading to poor sleep and daytime fatigue, irritability and increased health problems. The causes of snoring vary from person to person,” writes Dr. Allred on his website.
People suffering from sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) could suffer from various disorders including central sleep apnea (CSA), obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), Cheyene-Stokes respiration (CSR) or nocturnal hypoventilation.
“Statistics show that more than 40 million Americans experience sleep-disordered breathing. This means that 1 in 5 adults have mild obstructive sleep apnea and 1 in 15 have moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea. 75% of severe SDB cases remain undiagnosed,” says Dr. Allred. “Sleep apnea being a dangerous condition, I think it is utterly important that SDB is properly diagnosed. This is what our screening is about. We would like to help people know if they need treatment or not,” he added.
All who experience snoring, restlessness during sleep, sudden awakenings with a sensation of gasping, dry mouth or sore throat after awakening, difficulty getting up in the mornings, headaches, sleepiness and fatigue during the day, trouble concentrating, depression and irritability should get a free screening; above mentioned symptoms indicate OSA.
San Marcos residents who would like to take advantage of this opportunity should call 760.304.6455 to schedule a free screening at Allred Dental. For office directions, click here.
