Stop suffering from sleepless nights and stop by our office to see if we can diminish your sleep apnea.
While you will need to be diagnosed by your regular physician, or a sleep specialist physician, Dr. Timothy Moore can provide you with some treatment options that can reduce sleep apnea and help give you better sleep at night.
With Dr. Moore’s focus on your overall wellbeing, he’s happy to offer sleep apnea solutions that will improve not just your zzzzz’s but your waking hours too!
Sleep Apnea and Overall Health
If you suffer from sleep apnea, then you know it doesn’t just affect your evening slumber. Sleep apnea often causes:
- Feelings of fatigue and sleepiness
- Loud snoring
- Frequent awakenings during sleep
- Mood swings
- Sore throat and/or dry mouth
Worse still, untreated sleep apnea can lead to serious health problems including stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and weight gain.
Alternative Sleep Apnea Treatments
While Dr. Moore cannot diagnose sleep apnea, he can help you manage your condition with FDA-approved sleep apnea treatments:
- Custom-fitted night mouthguard
- Tongue retaining device (TRD) that gently prevents obstruction of the airway
The traditional alternative—a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) device—releases pressurized air through a mask that is worn over the nose. Many people find the mask difficult to adjust to and hard to travel with, making treatment difficult.
Mouthguards and TRDs are more comfortable and convenient for travel. For this reason, people tend to use them more consistently, leading to improved overall health.
Determining the Best Sleep Apnea Treatment
First, you’ll want to visit your physician or a sleep specialist for a diagnosis. After receiving one, simply schedule an appointment with Dr. Moore. He’ll determine the best sleep apnea solution for you and develop your treatment plan.
Put an end to those restless nights! Dr. Moore can help you sleep comfortably–not only will your evenings improve, but your days will too.
