DOES YOUR SNORING WAKE YOU OR YOUR FAMILY UP?
DO YOU FEEL EXHAUSTED WHEN YOU WAKE UP IN THE MORNING?
Have you been told that you snore and that it is bothering the family? Have you been told you must wear a CPAP (air mask worn when sleeping) or you will have serious health problems, but the thought of wearing a mask that covers most of your face and that leaves the telltale strap marks is unbearable, then we have the answer. These two issues fall under the heading of sleep disorders.
Dr. Druckman is taking this opportunity to tell you of a dental breakthrough of stopping you from snoring and/or gasping for air while you sleep by utilizing a retainer-like appliance, which keeps the airway from being blocked and remaining open. This is an easy way for you to take control of your health since it is a non-invasive procedure that is cheaper and more effective than surgery!
The technical name for the problem of snoring and choking while sleeping is sleep apnea. It is caused by the tongue relaxing when you sleep by falling backwards and closing the airway for 10 to 90 seconds, which can occur 15-90 times an hour. Additional red flags are: headaches, daytime sleepiness, high blood pressure, being overweight, anxiety and/or depression. Obviously, this is a very serious health problem!
If you or someone you know could be helped by this treatment, call our office and set up an appointment with Dr. Druckman.
Dr. Druckman will treat you or your loved one with an oral appliance so that everyone can have a good night’s sleep and feel refreshed and rejuvenated in the morning!
