In this video, Dr. Albert covers the questions commonly asked by patients regarding Sleep Apnea, and Dental Oral Appliances Therapy.
Signs, Causes and Treatment
Sleep Apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by complete or partial cessations of breathing during sleep. The cause is a physical block to airflow despite respiratory effort, and snoring is common.
Epworth Sleepiness Scale
The Sleepiness Test, also know as the Epworth Test, is intended to measure daytime sleepiness by using of a very short questionnaire. It is very helpful in diagnosing sleep disorders. It was first introduced in 1991 by Dr Murray Johns of Epworth Hospital in Melbourne, Australia.
Snoring Stresses Relationships
Living with a snorer can strain even the most dedicated relationship leading to dissension and in some case, divorce. If you are kept awake night after night by a bed partner's snoring, you are not getting the sleep you need. Sleep deprivation can lead to irritability, muddled thinking, illness, poor performance at work and drowsy driving.
FDA Approved For Both Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Worn much like a sports mouthpiece, Oral Appliances are the popular, consistently used solution by patients for sleep apnea. They are only available by prescription or construction by a licensed dentist or physician.
Sleep Apnea and Snoring
Did you know that sleep apnea affects more than 20 million Americans and can lead to serious health issues like heart attack, stroke, hypertension, depression and more? Snoring during sleep is usually the first sign of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Seattle Sleep Medicine's Dr. Albert offers comprehensive and advanced solutions to successfully treat people suffering from sleep apnea and other sleep related disorders.
Dental Oral Appliance Therapy for Seattle and Western Washington
Covered by one's medical insurance, Seattle Sleep Medicine prescribes Oral Appliances, often referred to as Dental Appliances that are an effective, comfortable, and durable alternative to CPAP therapy or corrective surgery. Men and women can wear them during sleep to prevent the collapse of the tongue and soft tissues in the back of the throat so that the airway stays open during sleep.
