Sleep apnea is sort of a strange disorder because most people have it and don’t even know it. What patients do know is they have all of these not-so-fun symptoms such as:
- Feeling tired all day even though you had a good night’s rest
- Difficulty concentrating
It’s important to take these things seriously and find out if sleep apnea is affecting your sleep and your life negatively. Dr. Stuntz can provide you with an easy, take-home sleep study. It comes with a device specially designed to measure your heart rate, sleep patterns, and teeth grinding. When we get the results, Dr. Stuntz can refer you to a physician for a diagnosis. Once diagnosed, we can suggest an oral appliance solution such as a SomnoDent sleep oral appliance. This type of visit is generally covered under your medical insurance. We’re happy to accept it, pending insurance approval.
