Sleep Apnea & Snoring Disorder Dental Treatment

Restful Sleep is HealthfulSleep Apnea Dental Treatment Watertown SD
It is important to have sufficient, restful sleep each and every night. Just as essential as food, air, and water, sleep allows your brain and body to revitalize for another day of activity. Throughout the day, your heart will take on the effect of daily stress. When you rest properly at night, your heart can decompress and release the stress it has gathered. Lack of sleep will place a burden on your heart with the accumulation of excessive strain on the muscle. Cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, and strokes have been connected to a regular lack of sleep. You can also help to curb other illnesses such as hypertension, obesity, memory loss, and diabetes by having restful, nightly sleep. It can even slow down age-related health problems!

Snoring Can Be Related to Serious Health Conditions

Snoring may not be just an annoyance. It often indicates a more severe health condition called sleep apnea. This problem centers on the obstruction of the airflow into and out of the lungs. More often than not, people are not aware they have this problem. Not receiving sufficient oxygen throughout the night can contribute to heart disease and strokes by increasing and sustaining high blood pressure and often resulting in premature death.

There are other negative effects from sleep deprivation. Lowered brain functioning and an increase in the release of stress hormones can cause depression. An easy solution to the problem is the use of an oral appliance that keeps the airway open and stops incessant snoring. Please ask us how we can help you and your partner get a sound sleep each night.


Alternative to CPAP for Sleep Apnea - Watertown SDA New Approach in Eliminating Sleep Apnea
The traditional method for treating sleep apnea is use of the CPAP device, which stands for Continuous Positive Air Pressure. It is a machine that pumps air continually though a mask and into a person’s lungs, preventing breathing disruption. Although it provides the necessary flow of air, many patients find wearing a mask during sleep very frustrating and stop using the CPAP.

If you have gone through this annoyance and have set this device aside, we can provide an alternative that remedies the problem in a more comfortable, natural way. With a small acrylic oral appliance such as the SomnoDent™, we can realign your jaw and tongue to keep your air passage open while you sleep. Dr. Bach custom makes the device to fit your upper and lower teeth, similar to a retainer. Results have been very positive, and this device is comfortable to wear, easy to put in, take out, and clean, and convenient to take along when traveling. This makes it easy for you and your partner to get a good night’s rest for a smile in the morning.

Common Myths of Gum Disease # 6

I have diabetes. Will I get gum disease
Diabetes is a chronic disease which affects your body's ability to process sugar. The resulting high blood sugar can cause problems with your eyes, nerves, kidneys, heart and other parts of your body. Diabetes can also lower your resistance to infection and can slow the healing process. If you have diabetes, you are at greater risk of developing some oral health problems, including gum disease, so it's important that you are extra diligent with your oral health.
