Questions You May Have
Here are some answers to common questions:
Q. What is sleep apnea?
A. Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder consisting of abnormal pauses in breathing or occurrences of unusually low breathing during sleep which limits the amount of oxygen the brain receives. These lapses in oxygen can contribute to a whole slew of health issues including, diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, weight gain, headaches, anxiety, depression, irritability, memory and concentration problems, and in the most extreme of cases, can even result in death!
Q. Why is it beneficial to see Dr. Bauer instead of a regular sleep specialist?
A. At Dental Center for Snoring and Sleep Apnea, we can see exactly where you are with sleep apnea. A home sleep study can be done at the comfort of your home instead of a sleep clinic. If the case is mild to moderate we can treat you at our office with a comfortable splint to open your airway and get the oxygen flowing. We work closely with certified sleep doctors to interpret the sleep test and make a recommendation for treatment based on your individual circumstance.
Q. Why do we offer Sleep Apnea treatment?
A. At Dental Center for Snoring and Sleep Apnea, we know a lack of a good night’s sleep can affect everyone. Oxygen deprivation issues aside, if your body is stressed because it’s not getting enough rest, it can’t repair itself. If your body can’t repair itself, it becomes unhealthy, which can lead to illness, obesity, or even serious diseases. Dr. Bauer finds it incredibly rewarding to offer sleep apnea treatment to her patients, and loves hearing from them about finally having a wonderful nights sleep!
