Bring Sleep Back into Your Life

Studies conducted by the National Sleep Foundation have concluded that over 20 million people have sleep apnea. Even more troubling is that 80% of these cases go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, which simply means that many people aren’t getting the treatment they need and are suffering. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is currently one of the most prominent sleep disorders in the world (just behind insomnia), and its numbers are only growing. However, Integrative Sleep Center knows how to offer a solution to this ever-increasing problem.

How Can a Dentist Help Me Sleep Better?

To treat OSA, a doctor needs to have an extensive working knowledge of the face, mouth, and throat muscles in order to determine what is causing the disorder, as well as how to treat it. Sleep dentists like Dr. Dreher are trained in these aspects of anatomy so they can properly implement a treatment known as oral appliance therapy. In recent years, this approach has become the preferred treatment by sleep physicians for mild to moderate OSA. It’s a viable alternative to traditional CPAP therapy, and it is often able to help patients who are CPAP intolerant. Dentists like Dr. Dreher are able to design these oral appliances so that they are both comfortable and effective. The appliances gently position the jaw so that a person’s breathing can’t become blocked, and this allows them to sleep restfully through the night, every night.

At Integrative Sleep Solutions, we partner with local sleep doctors to help you through both the diagnosis and treatment process. If you are missing out on rest, be sure to contact us today so we can get you on the road to treatment.
