Deep sleep is important for your day-to-day life and your overall health. If you or your partner have a chronic snoring problem, it can prevent both of you from getting the healthy sleep you need. It also may be a symptom of a serious sleep disorder called sleep apnea. To help our patients sleep better in Metairie, we offer treatment for sleep apnea that:
- Is convenient
- Is comfortable
- Can reduce or eliminate snoring
- Can help you and your spouse or significant other sleep well
If you are ready to wake up feeling rested and refreshed, call Metairie Dental Studio today at 504-291-0042. We’re ready to help you get the sleep you need.
Start Sleeping Better
We offer oral appliance therapy to treat sleep apnea. Dr. May can design a custom-fitted oral appliance that is similar to a mouthguard worn to prevent teeth grinding. The appliance shifts the position of your jaw slightly forward while you sleep. That change helps keep airways open so the person wearing it breathes easier and snores less – and less loudly!
If you have never been tested for sleep apnea, we can help you arrange a sleep test. If you were previously diagnosed, there is a good chance you were given a CPAP or similar machine to treat your condition. Many patients find our oral appliance simpler and easier to use than a CPAP.
Don’t Take Chances With Your Health
The first step in dealing with any problem is admitting that you have one. Many times, people with obstructive sleep apnea are unaware that they have it. More often, it’s their family and friends who notice the signs. This includes frequent breathing stoppages and loud, chronic snoring.
Untreated sleep apnea isn’t just an annoyance. It can be harmful to your health. It raises the risk of cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, strokes, and sleep deprivation.
Better sleep can lead to a healthier life for you and your partner. To sleep better in Metairie, call 504-291-0042 and make an appointment with Dr. May.
