    Suffering from SLEEP APNEA in rockland county?

    Do you snore? Have you often woken up after a full night’s sleep feeling as if you haven’t rested at all? Like most people, you probably think snoring is merely an annoyance. You’re partly right; it is often annoying enough to cause a snorer’s bed partner to lose sleep – or worse, move to the guest room! But did you know that snoring could signal a serious disorder called sleep apnea?

    More than just being a nuisance, sleep apnea can aggravate many serious health problems and cause additional ones. Not everyone who snores has sleep apnea, but if you are concerned that you might be at risk, consider a sleep evaluation. If you’re diagnosed with sleep apnea, conservative treatments are available. Dr. Barbara Ollech offers comfortable, effective oral appliances to treat those with sleep apnea at her Rockland County dental practice.

    Left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to exhaustion that may cause motor vehicle accidents. Being deprived of the sleep stages your body and brain need to rejuvenate and repair, can lead to heart disease, diabetes, stroke, depression, impaired memory and other cognitive function, loss of sex drive, increased appetite and inability to lose weight.

    The good news is that there are comfortable alternatives that dentists use to treat sleep apnea today. In order to treat sleep apnea effectively, you want a professional who has the proper training and experience to recognize signs and symptoms and advise you about your options.
