Sleep Apnea - Why You Should See Your Dentist

Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder that is best described as the inability to breath in oxygen during your sleep. Although cases of sleep apnea range from mild to severe, it's best to treat it before it escalates. In the most severe cases of sleep apnea, death is a risk. That's why, at Federici Dental, we feel that if you're experiencing sleep apnea symptoms, it's time to visit our amazing doctors, Dr. Joseph R. Federici and Dr. David E. Federici. Dr. Dave is an expert in this field as he is one of only 425 Diplomates of the ABDSM (American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine) in the country which is the highest level of expertise that can be achieved in the treatment of Sleep Apnea.

Signs That You May Be Experiencing Sleep Apnea

How exactly can you tell if you're suffering from sleep apnea? There are a few clues and symptoms that you may be able to identify. You may be suffering from sleep apnea if you've experienced any of the following:

  • Loud snoring
  • Choking sounds
  • Waking up abruptly
  • Tiredness throughout the day
  • Difficulty staying asleep
  • Restless sleep

The symptoms listed above are not an exhaustive list. If you fear that you (or someone you know) may be experiencing sleep apnea, we suggest scheduling a consultation with your preferred Manahawkin dentist Drs. Federici, today!

Dental Treatments for Sleep Apnea

As stated before, if you have sleep apnea, this disorder must be taken care of as soon as possible before it escalates to a severe case which can sometimes lead to death. Don't panic though—our doctors are not only specialists in the field, but they pride themselves in being able to identify the best sleep apnea treatment for you. While these treatments can come in the form of an oral device, airway pressure machines, or nerve stimulation therapy—you can always take charge and begin combating sleep apnea at home by:

  • Losing weight
  • Eating a healthy diet
  • Sleeping on your side
  • Monitoring your blood pressure
  • Quit drinking alcohol
  • Quit smoking
