Are you exposed to Snoring? Do you snore or have Sleep Apnea?

Palm Beach County’s, Dr. Andrew Rudnick, DMD welcomes the opportunity to talk with you in person about how oral appliance therapy can help manage your snoring and/or sleep apnea. Snoring is caused by the vibration of tissues within the throat as the air passes through constricted passageways. Sleep Apnea is a ten second period of time where non-breathing occurs. Sleep apnea conditions come in three levels and can occur so frequently that breathing is non-existent for 100-1,000 seconds per hour, known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA or Level 3).

Do you live with a snorer?

Studies have documented exposure to just the snoring noise, whether you are asleep or awake may cause affects such as high blood pressure, increased risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and even dementia. We recommend you to please explore all treatment options. You and your live-in partner deserve good health and long life. Visit your local sleep apnea dentist and explore the many diversified options for an oral sleeping appliance.

Preventative Maintenance is key.

Treat your snoring and sleep apnea symptoms before complications occur. Remedies to try to include are weight loss, if necessary, and sleeping on your side instead of your back. Then apply the final step of sleep dentistry, which includes oral appliances to gently open the throats airway for easier less constricted breathing and less snoring.

Snoring Complications include:

If not treated, sleep apnea can lead to grave health concerns due to lack of oxygen to the body and terrible sleep; such as cardiovascular disease, gastric reflux, depression, diabetes, and even death. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA, Level 3) can increase the risk of:

  • Heart Disease
  • Heart Attacks (the risk of heart attack is higher for those with OSA than for smokers)
  • High Blood Pressure
  • GERD (Gastric Esophageal Reflux Disease)
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Impotence
  • Depression
  • Menstrual complications
  • And unfortunately there’s more!
