Sleep Medicine in Lewisburg

Don’t Stress. Get Some Rest.

Does every morning feel like you’re stuck in a bad dream where you wake up feeling groggy, unfocused, and yearning for more sleep? Do you feel this way, yet also a little confused because you’re getting your eight hours of shut-eye every night?

Now, ask yourself this — Do you snore?

Snoring, combined with poor sleeping, could potentially be a condition you need to have checked out, also known as sleep apnea, and it can be hazardous to your health. Let us show you how we’re working with patients desperate to find relief from sleep apnea in Lewisburg.

So Much More Than Snoring

Sure, snoring is one of the most common sleep apnea indicators, but there’s more to this condition than you might think. When you’re snoring away at night, there’s a chance that you also stop breathing. Some people do this repeatedly, even stopping breathing for up to two solid minutes without even realizing it. This could also be the reason you’re waking up with the same symptoms each morning.

Sleep apnea and snoring can also lead to oxygen deprivation and an unwanted drop in your blood oxygen levels, causing your blood pressure to rise and adding more stress on your cardiovascular system. And you know that tired feeling you can’t seem to shake each day? It could be because sleep apnea actually deprives your body of the ability to properly enter REM sleep, the stage of rest that provides energy to our brains and bodies while also repairing and regrowing body tissue.

All of these issues combined can lead to other health issues that you might not associate with sleep apnea, such as:

  • Nighttime chest pain
  • Depression
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding)
  • TMJ disorder
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • High blood pressure

The list goes on. However, you don’t have to struggle with sleep apnea in Lewisburg. You’ve got Union Dental Health.

Treating and Beating Sleep Apnea in Lewisburg

During our new patient exam, we always talk with our patients about sleep apnea. Many times, patients are amazed that a dentist can help them get a better night’s rest. We can help you by:

  • Evaluating your sleep patterns and discussing your problems
  • Using our state-of-the-art CBCT scanner to evaluate your breathing quality
  • Administering a take-home sleep exam and sleep monitoring
  • Detecting your oxygen saturation levels

While we can’t diagnose sleep apnea in Lewisburg, we can work with you and a trusted sleep physician to get you snore-free and sleeping soundly. We can also recommend something called a TAP 3 appliance, which opens up your airway and allows for better breathing.
