Many people have trouble sleeping. There are several reasons as to why this may occur, and it’s important that individuals who suffer from sleep problems pay attention to their symptoms during the day as well as other factors that may be contributing to their lack of restful sleep. In some cases, sleep apnea may be the cause of your morning grogginess, frequent headaches, and general inability to stay asleep during the night. With the help of our Brookhaven dentist, Eyal Waldman, DMD, you can have sleep apnea properly diagnosed and you can benefit from a variety of sleep apnea treatment as well.
If you have sleep apnea, you need to see a dentist. Sleep apnea is a condition that is caused by the structure of your air pathways, generally including your nose, nasal cavity, mouth, and throat. The way that your air pathways open and close while you’re sleeping can influence the quality of your sleep. People who have sleep apnea tend to snore loudly, suffer from morning headaches and daytime fatigue, experience generally restless sleep, frequently wake in the middle of the night (sometimes due to excess coughing), and have irregular breathing patterns while they sleep. Sleep apnea can be difficult to deal with, especially since it can seriously drain you overtime. Depending on your specific case of sleep apnea, our Brookhaven dentist Eyal Waldman, DMD will provide you with the necessary treatment.
Some people may benefit from oral appliances that they wear at night so as to help improve their breathing while they sleep. Other individuals may require CPAP machines or similar tools that can help further induce oxygen intake while asleep. In more severe cases, surgery maybe taking into consideration, but our Brookhaven dentist, Eyal Waldman, DMD, will work with you to find the perfect solution. Based on your budget, preferences, and medical needs, Dr. Waldman will provide you with the sleep apnea treatment that you need to improve your life and the quality of your sleep.
