Sleep Medicine Dentist Demotte

Sleep is one of the most important tools that we have to contribute to our overall health and well-being. Most adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep every night in order for health to be optimal; less than that can start to lead to short- and long-term health complications. What’s more, if a person suffers from a sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea or severe snoring, they may be compromising their sleep every night, putting them at risk of health consequences. At Distinctive Dental Solutions, our sleep medicine dentist Demotte may be able to provide treatment options for your sleep disorder that work. Call us today to schedule your first appointment and learn more. We are accepting new patients. 

Common Sleep Disorders

Having a sleep disorder that interferes with your ability to get a good night’s sleep can be both incredibly frustrating and very concerning—not to mention exhausting. Some common sleep disorders that may be interfering with your ability to get meaningful, restorative rest include:

  • Excessive snoring
  • Insomnia
  • Sleep apnea
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding) 
  • Narcolepsy
  • Sleep talking and sleepwalking
  • Night terrors

If you suspect that you have any of these conditions, you should consult with a professional. If you wake up feeling tired, fatigued, and not well-rested, you should consult with a professional who can perform a sleep assessment to properly diagnose your condition. 

Understanding Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is one of the most common sleep disorders, affecting approximately 13 percent of men and six percent of women. The sleep disorder is a condition where the sleeper stops and starts breathing multiple times throughout the night. With obstructive sleep apnea, which is the most common form of sleep apnea, this is caused by the relaxation of the throat muscles. Men, those with a large throat circumference, overweight persons, and smokers are at a higher risk of obstructive sleep apnea. Sometimes, losing weight and making lifestyle changes can help. 

Seeking Treatment for Better Sleep and Better Health

If you suspect that you have a sleep disorder or if you have been diagnosed with a sleep condition such as obstructive sleep apnea, getting treatment as soon as possible is important. Consistently not getting enough sleep can lead to both short- and long-term health complications. In fact, sleep apnea is associated with heart disease, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and stroke.
