Thanks to Dr. Monica. Now I as well as my family can sleep in peace. I used to snore like a train making it impossible for my family members to sleep. Sleep apnea treatment has changed my life.
Getting the best sleep after years. Thank you. I would refer everyone to visit Dr. Monica for a solution to sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea can be a serious and sometimes life-threatening condition that can take a toll on your quality of sleep and overall wellbeing. It occurs in about 3% of healthy-weight individuals, and over 20% of obese people.
When you think of sleep apnea, you don’t typically think of seeking help from your dentist. But there are ways we can help. Don’t let fatigue from sleep apnea compromise your quality of life. Consult your sleep apnea doctor today!
The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA occurs when your throat tissue collapses, blocking your airway. If left untreated, OSA can cause severe complications, including high blood pressure as well as increased risk of stroke heart attack, and diabetes.
obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) causes your brain to suffer from a chronic lack of oxygen, which makes you feel foggy-headed and exhausted. If left untreated, it can lead to chronic headaches, dangerous daytime sleepiness behind the wheel, and even depression.
Over half of OSA patients are overweight. Extra tissue around your throat can cause it to collapse and block your airway during sleep. You may also have OSA if you:
Have been told you snore louder than a freight train? Do you wake up exhausted, despite getting a solid eight hours of sleep every night? If so, you might be experiencing sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea occurs when your breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. This interruption prevents your body from entering the proper sleep cycles, leaving you and anyone who sleeps in the same room as you left feeling exhausted the next morning.
While a diagnosis of sleep apnea can be alarming, it is a treatable condition. There are many steps you can take on your own to help. However, they should not replace medical evaluation and treatment. So, contact a doctor immediately if you spot the warning signs.
Dr. Monica Crooks can work with your sleep physician to alleviate your obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and reduce your daytime fatigue. Sleep apnea is most commonly treated with a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine. Unfortunately, CPAP machines limit your sleeping positions and can cause a dry nose and throat. The good news is that CPAP is not the only effective way to treat OSA.
Dr. Crooks may be able to build you an oral appliance that you wear at night to keep your airway open. Our CPAP oral appliances are custom-made to fit you comfortably. No more interrupted sleep or groggy days; you’ll be, well-rested, and alert!
If you are currently suffering from daytime fatigue, call our office at (916) 922-2027 today! Let us help you get the proper rest so you can get the most out of life.
