Are you tired of feeling tired?
Do you suffer from:
• Excessive daytime sleepiness?
• Poor memory function?
• Short concentration?
You have been experiencing difficulty sleeping. You may be snoring loudly, or you may be gasping or choking at night. In addition, you may be excessively tired during the day, have morning headaches, and may be depressed or irritable.
If you have sleep apnoea, your airway collapses during sleep and prevents air from getting to your lungs. You stop breathing momentarily, which casues sleep disturbances and puts strain on your heart.
One of the treatment choices is a custom made Mandibular Advancement Splint, such as a SomnoDent.
Don’t delay starting your treatment. Sleep apnoea is a serious condition and if left untreated may have serious consequences. Ask us how we can arrange a home sleep study for you.
Your dentist plays an extremely important role in sleep medicine, not only in treatment, but also in first-line recognition of the clinical signs, and screening, for sleep disordered breathing.
Dentists are in a position to be the number one group identifying these potential patients. Why? Sleep apnoea is commonly a disease of the cranio-facial anatomy. Who should be experts in that field? Dentists.
Dr Perdis and the team at Melbourne Street Dental Studio are trained to provide you with a convenient home sleep screening apparatus.
You will be shown how to use the equipment overnight, then returned the next day so we can download the results.
You will be provided with a report, and the appropriate treatment recommendations.
