Snoring may be a bigger problem than you think! Sure, it keeps others up at night, but it may be a sign of a condition that is more than just annoying: obstructive sleep apnea. This potentially deadly condition involves multiple pauses in breathing during sleep and puts you at risk for several serious health problems. Fortunately, sleep apnea treatment is available at your Suffolk County Dentist. At Long Island Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Nick and Dr. Elliot can provide help for your snoring problem.
Not all patients who snore have sleep apnea, but a good percentage of snorers do have a problem with the condition. If you wonder if you might be among them, ask yourself the following questions:
If you answered yes to all three questions, there is a strong possibility that you may suffer from sleep apnea. Other indications of a sleep apnea problem are waking with a dry mouth or a headache, feeling tired all day, and having problems with memory or irritability.

If you think you may have a sleep apnea problem, come in to see Dr. Nick and Dr. Elliot for an evaluation.
Let’s say that you have a sleep apnea problem and you live in Suffolk County, where you have access to excellent treatment with Long Island Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry. Why should you take the time to come in for treatment? Well, consider these reasons:
There are two main ways to treat sleep apnea. CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) is a very effective treatment. However, it involves a machine and mask that many patients find impossible to tolerate. Dr. Nick and Dr. Elliot can provide a second type of treatment: oral appliance therapy or a “snoring mouthpiece.” Your primary care physician can refer you to our offices for this type of treatment. We can then do an exam and take X-rays to make sure that you are a good candidate (most are). We make the appliance especially for you and then do follow up adjustments and analysis to make sure that it is working effectively.
Oral appliance therapy is most likely covered under your insurance plan. Please call 631-744-5700 to schedule an appointment today. A good night’s sleep for you and your sleep partner may be just a dentist’s visit away!
