Are you one of the many millions of people who suffer from sleep deprivation? This is often a result of sleep apnea, a condition in which a person's airway becomes obstructed and cuts off the air supply. A new two piece dental insert, which is as comfortable as small dental retainers, could be your answer. This is nothing like the huge appliances called CPAP's that have been used in the past. Make an appointment today by calling (302) 994-2660 and be on your way to a better night's sleep!
Sleep deprivation is not just a matter of getting a few less hours of sleep and feeling tired the next day. If it were, we could all get by on more coffee. The effects of sleep deprivation are much more far-reaching. It can result in a reduction in body temperature, in immune system function, in the release of growth hormone, and even shorten your life expectancy! It can also cause and increase in the heart rate variability. Very often, the sleep deprivation is caused by snoring. You may not even be aware that you do snore!
An innovation in dental appliances has has made it possible to reduce and sometimes eliminate snoring. These appliances are small and may remind you of an orthodontic retainer. At your first appointment, Dr. Gladnick will take upper and lower impressions as well as a bite registration. In this way your "retainer" will be custom made to suit your needs.
Your dental insert will have the effect of discouraging a low tongue position, which is often responsible for blocking your airway. Dr. Gladnick will be sure to follow-up with you to make sure that you are comfortable and able to wear your personal retainer all night.
