SLEEP HEALTH PROBLEMS

SLEEP HEALTH PROBLEMS
by Dr. H. Kopel
As dental professionals we are concerned with any health conditions that we can treat which impact your oral health or general health. The Sleep Health Questionnaire you filled out provides important information in determining if you are a candidate for a Home Sleep Study which will diagnose if you are actually suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
Most people are unaware of that their sleep is being disrupted or of the accompanying nighttime snoring. This condition causes normal breathing to pause for seconds or minutes. This results in loss of deep sleep and ensuing daytime sleepiness.
More importantly sleep apnea is a contributing risk factor for high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack, obesity and diabetes.
Once your sleep apnea is diagnosed by a medical specialist that reviews your Home Sleep Study you may be a candidate for our Custom Made Oral Appliance Therapy. This therapy can be an exciting alternative to surgery or cumbersome CPAP breathing devices that many patients currently suffer with.

As a dental hygiene student you can join the American Dental Hygienists Association, and your State DHA, they will also have a local chapter (society/group affiliate) get involved with your local group as they do yearly salary surveys. They will let you know average and hi/low salaries, plus benefits and perks. This is great information while negotiating employment. good luck
