Get Help to Sleep Better in Ponchatoula, LA
Deep sleep is important for your day-to-day life and your overall health. If you or your partner has a chronic snoring problem, it can prevent both of you from getting the healthy sleep you need. It also may be a symptom of a serious sleep disorder called sleep apnea.
To help our patients sleep better in Ponchatoula, LA and Metairie, LA, we offer treatment for sleep apnea that:
- Is convenient
- Is comfortable
- Can reduce or eliminate snoring
- Can help you and your spouse or significant other sleep well
Start Sleeping Better
At our two Louisiana locations, we offer oral appliance therapy to treat this condition. We can design a custom-fitted appliance for your mouth. This is similar to a mouthguard, but you wear it while you sleep. The appliance shifts the position of your jaw slightly forward. That change helps to keep airways open so the person wearing it breathes easier and snores less – and less loudly!
If you have never been tested for sleep apnea, we can help you arrange a sleep test. If you were previously diagnosed, there is a good chance you were given a CPAP or similar machine to treat your condition. Many patients find our oral appliance simpler and easier to use than a CPAP.
Don’t Take Chances With Your Health
The first step in dealing with any problem is admitting that you have one. Many times, people with obstructive sleep apnea are unaware that they have it. More often, it’s their family and friends who noticed the signs. This includes frequent breathing stoppages and loud, chronic snoring.
Untreated sleep apnea isn’t just an annoyance. It can be harmful to your health. It raises the risk of cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, strokes, and sleep deprivation.
Better sleep can lead to a healthier life for you and your partner. To sleep better in Ponchatoula or Metairie, LA, call 985-268-1112 or 504-291-0042 and make an appointment at the nearest Deep South Family Dentistry location to you.
