Enjoying the warm weather is a big part of the summer months for many of us in Owasso. What is better than playing a few rounds of golf at Bailey Ranch Golf Club and then feasting on some delicious barbeque at SMOKE? Whatever your summer staple is, you don’t want poor sleep to get in your way.

But what if your lack of quality sleep greatly impacts your waking life? It’s time to schedule an appointment with your sleep apnea dentist in Owasso.

Sleep Apnea Symptoms Are Not Just A Nightly Occurrence

If you suffer from sleep apnea, you know that feeling drowsy during the day is just the tip of the iceberg. Sleep apnea symptoms are much more than restless nights. Here are some of the most common sleep apnea symptoms, many of which you experience during the day when you are awake:

  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Dry mouth upon waking
  • Excessive, loud snoring
  • Gasping for air/episodes of not breathing while asleep
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Morning headaches
  • Trouble concentrating

Do any of those sound familiar? Chances are you deal with a handful of them – but it doesn’t mean you have to simply deal with the consequences of untreated sleep apnea. A call to your sleep apnea dentist – Dr. Heng Lim, at Life Smiles of Owasso – can have you reaping the benefits of a good night’s sleep.

Your Owasso Dentist Has The Tools To Improve Your Everyday Life

Although your first inclination may be to schedule a visit with your primary physician, the solution lies in the dentist’s chair. Obstructive sleep apnea (or OSA, for short) is characterized by your throat muscles relaxing too much while you sleep, causing airway obstruction.

Since dentists deal with the oral cavity, your sleep dentist can examine you for signs of OSA and provide the proper treatment if this is the case. Dr. Lim – the best sleep dentist – uses the latest technology to make your sleep apnea treatment as comfortable and effective as possible.

CPAP is no longer the only option for sleep apnea treatment. At Life Smiles of Owasso, Dr. Lim will have you custom-fitted for a small orthotic that you will only wear as you sleep. Oral appliance therapy, positions your jaw forward as you sleep, preventing any airway blocking and allowing you to sleep soundly – and safely – throughout the night.

OAT is convenient, comfortable, and highly effective. Unlike CPAP treatment for OSA, no wires, tubes, or masks are needed. Your dentist is ready to make treatment a breeze, and oral appliance therapy is a great way to secure some quality sleep.
