If you're like most people, you see your dentist more frequently than your family physician. That's why Sunshine Dental, PLLC offers sleep apnea screenings to check for and treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Sleep apnea screening is simple and can be done in the comfort of your home. Dr. Gupta at our Washington, D.C. office will provide you with a home sleep test that you can take and then send back to our office. If you choose to have your results diagnosed, we'll refer you to our affiliated sleep physician. If the results are within the dental sleep apnea range, we can make a dental sleep apnea oral appliance for you.
Good quality sleep is crucial to your mental, physical and emotional health. If you’re losing sleep due to sleep apnea, there can be serious consequences. With proper sleep apnea treatment, you’ll reduce your risk of:
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
- Type II diabetes
- Weight gain
- Adult asthma
- Acid reflux
If you suspect you have sleep apnea, don’t wait. Contact Dr. Gupta today to get screened and discuss sleep apnea treatment options.
