Nearly two thirds of all adults have insufficient sleep at least 4 nights a week. By taking a simple at-home sleep test, our team can evaluate your oxygen levels, heart rate and blood pressure behavior.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is an involuntary interruption of breathing that occurs while a person is asleep. Most people who suffer from sleep apnea are unaware of the cessation of breathing because it does not trigger the sleeper awake. There are three types of sleep apnea: obstructive, central, and mixed. Obstructive sleep apnea, often called OSA for short, is the most common.
Symptoms of Sleep Apnea
We encourage patients to have a consultation with Dr. Perry if you have the following symptoms:
- High Blood Pressure
- Excessive Sleepiness
- Weight Gain
- Heart Failure, Irregular Heartbeats or Heart Attacks
- Worsening ADHD
Contact Rancho Dental for Sleep Apnea Treatment
There are various treatments options for sleep apnea. One of the most common is the use of a positive airway pressure device worn during sleep. These machines are often inconvenient and noisy. Another less invasive option is oral appliance therapy. You can have a custom oral appliance designed specifically for you. It is an appliance worn while sleeping, like a sports mouthguard or an orthodontic appliance. This is where Rancho Dental can help with sleep apnea!
Our simple at home sleep test is done using a non-invasive sleep device worn on your finger and wrist. After 2 nights we can tell you about your sleep patterns and help you get the night’s sleep you need and deserve. Call today and make your appointment to discuss the easy and affordable options that are right for you.
