MT. PLEASANT, S.C. (PRWEB) February 09, 2021
Respected Mt. Pleasant, SC dentist, Dr. Kevin Hogan of Smiles by Hogan, is helping his community sleep better with customized sleep apnea treatments. A lack of sleep not only causes physical exhaustion, but can result in mental and emotional exhaustion as well. At a time where mental and physical health can be easily compromised, Dr. Hogan is making it easier for people to receive necessary sleep apnea treatment in Mt. Pleasant, SC so they can get the rest they need.
Sleep apnea is a serious health condition that causes an interruption in breathing during sleep. When someone suffers from sleep apnea, this interruption can occur hundreds of times in one night, often resulting in the brain being deprived of oxygen. If left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to more serious conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease. Symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Waking up with headaches
- Snoring loudly
- Waking up short of breath
- Trouble sleeping or even insomnia
- Extreme fatigue and drowsiness throughout the day
Dr. Hogan offers customized sleep apnea treatments specifically designed to fit each individual patient’s needs. Depending on the type of sleep apnea a patient suffers from, Dr. Hogan can provide custom-fit mouth guards, breathing devices, and other snoring treatments.
“By treating sleep apnea at any stage, it really improves a patient’s quality of life by letting them get a good night’s rest,” says Dr. Hogan. “They can exercise again, maybe lose some weight. If you are going throughout your day and you haven’t had a good night’s sleep, the last thing you are going to do is try to work out, because you are already fatigued.”
In an additional effort to keep his community healthy, Dr. Hogan has implemented strict protocols within his practice to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Smiles by Hogan follows the recommendations of the CDC, ADA, and OSHA. They also have thorough sanitization procedures and limit the number of people in the office at a time.
