Charleston, SC (PRWEB) September 19, 2018
General dentist Dr. Kevin Hogan at Smiles by Hogan, welcomes new patients who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea in Charleston, SC and around the area who want to address the short-term and long-term effects of their condition. Loud snoring at night and falling asleep during the day are common signs of sleep apnea that can be treated with advanced dental treatments. Dr. Hogan offers personalized care for sufferers of sleep apnea and can create a customized care plan to help lessen the immediate and future problems related to losing sleep and depriving the brain of oxygen for short periods of time.
Sleep apnea is a common condition that affects millions of Americans. During episodes of sleep apnea, sleepers are unable to breathe properly. This leads them to suddenly gasp for air up to 30 or more times per hour depending upon the severity of their condition. Over time, their health and wellbeing can be compromised, as in the case of those who routinely wake feeling unrested or even ill. They can also be at higher risk than the general population of stroke, obesity and other medical problems.
Dr. Hogan works with those who have already received a sleep apnea diagnosis from a sleep clinic or medical physician. Post-diagnosis, he can apply treatment methods like custom mouthguards that are worn during sleep. Additionally, he offers CPAP machines when applicable. The end goal is for patients to get the rest their brains and bodies need to fully function and feel more awake, alert and able to enjoy daily experiences.
“Treating sleep apnea at any stage you're able to improve a patient's quality of life,” explains Dr. Hogan. “Patients are able to feel less fatigued, get a good night's rest and feel more energy to exercise.”
Those who have already been diagnosed with sleep apnea in Charleston, SC or surrounding areas, can set up an appointment at Dr. Hogan’s state-of-the-art practice in Mt. Pleasant by calling 843-216-0908.
