How Your Dentist Can Help You Sleep Better with Dream Sleep

Sleep apnea can wreak havoc on your health, quality of life, and even your relationships. If you’re one of the millions of Americans suffering from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), Dream Sleep may provide the relief you’ve been looking for. Dr. David Epstein is a Dreamsleep-Certified Provider at The Woodlands Dental Group in Texas.

How sleep apnea affects your health and quality of life

The symptoms of OSA can ruin your sleep, make it difficult, if not impossible, to function at school or at work, and even increase your risk of serious health complications. In addition to the loud and chronic snoring, some of the most common symptoms of sleep apnea and risk factors include:

Obstructive sleep apnea results from a partial blockage of your airway while you sleep, so keeping the airway clear and unobstructed will keep the oxygen flowing and help you get uninterrupted sleep.

How Dream Sleep can help with your obstructive sleep apnea symptoms

A dentist may seem like an odd choice to treat a sleep disorder, but the key to managing your sleep apnea symptoms lies with an easy to use, minimally invasive oral appliance device that helps to keep your airway open throughout the night so that you can breathe properly. Dream Sleep differs from other oral appliance devices, like CPAP, in a number of ways. 

Dream Sleep is custom-designed to fit your teeth and jaw comfortably and securely, so you don’t have to worry about dealing with a loud or obtrusive machine. The Dream Sleep appliance is portable, so you can take it with you and continue to enjoy a good night’s sleep while you travel for vacation, on business, or whenever you have to spend an evening away from home. 

Candidates for Dream Sleep may also be eligible for an in-home sleep test instead of the traditional screening at a sleep lab, which can sometimes put people off from seeking timely treatment for their OSA symptoms. If you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea or are exhibiting symptoms of OSA, Dream Sleep may be the solution you’ve been looking for.
