Excellent doctor! My teeth feel good as new. Great doctor and friendly staff. The doctor is somewhat careless and does not seem to care much about the patient. She is more interested in the money. Most painless cavity filling I've ever had! Dr. Pinkhasova replaced the filling on three teeth and filled one cavity. I barely felt a thing. Also, the entire staff is female! Yay women! Would definitely recommend. Love this place, they make coming to the dentist feel easy! Great doctors and staff. I’ve only moved to the area recently and am glad to have found a dentist close to home.

SNORING

Snoring is a common issue that is known to affect a number of adult men and women around the world. Snoring is that all-too-familiar, loud breathing noise created as a result of obstructed airways and the inability for air to pass through the throat while sleeping. When the air flow becomes obstructed from the mouth and nose is creates specific vibrations along the walls of the throat and mouth. This vibration is the resultant noise we know as snoring.

CAUSES

While snoring is mainly caused from obstructed airways and is a surefire sign of Obstructed Sleep Apnea, there are a number of other contributing factors that will lead to constant, sever snoring, including:

  • Poor Muscle Tone & Strength (jaw, throat, tongue, and nasal passage muscles).
  • Excess Tissue along the Throat.
  • Being Overweight or Obesity.
  • Long, Soft Palate and/or Uvula (the dangling tissue at the back of the mouth).

Snoring is not only an issue to the individual, the loud, often disruptive noise can make it difficult for the individuals spouse, or partner to get to bed as well – causing intimacy issues in relationships. This leads to both emotional and physical anguish due to the lack of rest, and REM sleep on both parties.

The Danger of Hypersomnia

One of the most critical issues associated with Obstructive Sleep Apnea, is the lack of nocturnal sleep. Not only does this prevent you from focusing and performing at your best during the day, but it causes a disorder known as Hypersomnia – characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness, and drowsiness.

In its most severe forms, Hypersomnia can cause patients to experience bouts of Narcolepsy, the sudden, unwanted onset of sleep. This issue can wreak havoc on your daily life, affecting your performance at work, damaging your social life, and even putting your life in danger. Patients who experience extreme Hypersomnia can fall asleep without even a second’s notice, sometimes at the most inopportune times. Many have been known to fall asleep in the midst of a conversations, or even when performing highly engaging, dangerous activities like driving, or operating heavy machinery. In the United States, car accidents are 10 times more likely to occur for those who suffer from Hypersomnia caused by Sleep Apnea – putting your life, as well the lives of others, at risk!

If you might be suffering from any of the signs of Hypersomnia, contact our office today, and schedule your consult with Dr. Pinkhasova immediately. Some common signs of Hypersomnia include:

  • Dosing off randomly throughout the day –
    even for a few seconds.
  • Chronic Irritability
  • Migraine Headaches
  • Depression
  • Decreased Sex Drive
  • Hallucinations
  • Complete Lack of Focus

The Benefits of Oral Sleep Appliances

Snoring can be a huge burden on your quality of life. Aside from the associated health aspects, snoring not only affects you but those around you. Oral Sleep Appliances are dental apparatuses that are worn during sleep in order to help manipulate the positioning of the jaw and other tissue(s) within the mouth. By altering the positioning of this tissue, we are able to help open the airways during the night – alleviating the obstruction that prevents proper breathing as a result of sleep apnea. Once the airways are opened and breathing is restored to normal, you will no longer snore or have trouble breathing – helping out with both your physical health and the health of your relationships!
