If you or your child is suffering from sleep apnea, you are one of millions of Americans who do. Although you may feel alone, it is a common condition, but it is also necessary that you have it diagnosed as quickly as possible. At Red Bank, NJ, Denise DiBona, DDS, LLC will work with you or your child to ensure you receive a fast diagnosis and get the treatment needed to provide relief. We have all of the snoring solutions you need to rest easy at night and get a great night’s rest.
How Sleep Apnea and Snoring Affect Your Health
Sleep apnea can affect both kids and adults, and there is no age limit as to who can be affected. Both conditions are serious, especially if they are not diagnosed and handled in a timely manner. Sleep apnea can be a life-threatening condition if it is left untreated.
The condition can cause or exacerbate the following:
- High blood pressure
- Heart attack
- Heart disease
- Irregular heartbeat
- Overall well-being
At-Home or Off-Site Testing
Denise DiBona, DDS, LLC can order both at-home and off-site sleep studies to diagnose sleep apnea and snoring. If you are interested in the at-home study, you will be given a machine to wear that will monitor your sleeping habits. Once the study is done, the information on the device will be sent to a certified sleep specialist and then evaluated by Dr. DiBona. She will be able to recommend what type of treatment is best for your case.
For off-site studies, Dr. DiBona will refer you to a specialist who performs the testing in a lab setting. Once the study is completed, the results will be sent to Dr. DiBona, who will go over them with you. It is important that the sleep study is performed to get an accurate diagnosis so that you can receive the right treatment.
Treatment for a Sleep Apnea or Snoring Solutions
If the results confirm that you suffer from sleep apnea, Dr. DiBona will work hand-in-hand with you to ensure you get the right treatment. Denise DiBona, DDS, LLC specializes in making sleep appliances to open your airways and keep them open throughout the night. The sleep appliance is a great alternative for those who do not like the traditional CPAP device. Each oral appliance is custom made to help move your jaw forward and promote proper airflow.
After your new oral appliance has been made, we will fit it in your mouth to make sure you are comfortable with the way it feels. The mouthpiece can be removed once you awake in the morning, and it is designed to provide you with the most comfort possible.
