Sleep apnea is a common condition that is characterized by interrupted breathing or instances of abnormally low breathing during sleep. This condition can become life threatening if it is left untreated because it has been proven to increase the risks of serious health conditions, including heart disease and stroke. Sleep apnea prevents the brain, heart, and other parts of the body from receiving the sufficient levels of oxygen that they need. At Muccioli Dental we offer treatment for sleep apnea. Drs. Lydia and Randy Muccioli both have specialty training in treating different aspects of sleep apnea, and they can provide a treatment plan that will improve your sleep as well as your overall health and quality of life.
There are a few telltale signs of sleep apnea:
- Restless sleep
- Interrupted sleep
- Waking from a full night’s sleep still feeling tired
- Sleepiness throughout the day
Sleep is one of the most important naturally occurring parts of the day. A regular sleep cycle is essential for the body to rest, heal, and regain the energy it needs for the next day. When sleep is continually interrupted by not receiving an adequate amount of oxygen, a person’s health can decline in many areas. At Muccioli Dental we understand the seriousness of sleep apnea, and we provide treatment for this sleep disorder. We offer customized sleep apnea appliances that are effective and comfortable. These appliances hold the mouth in a correct position so that breathing is not interrupted or stopped while sleeping.
If you live in the Johns Creek or surrounding area and are suffering from sleep apnea, please call Muccioli Dental today. The faster your sleep disorder is addressed, the faster you will see results and begin healing your body. As a comprehensive dental practice we care about our patients’ entire health. We understand the correlation between oral health and overall health, and we are here to make sure that both are taken care of. Call us today.
