What Happens at my FREE Snoring and Sleep Apnea Second Opinion Consultation?
At your consultation, you’ll meet with our dentist, Dr. Jay Goldstein, or one of our other associates. You can do this in person at our dental clinic, but we also offer a virtual option for your convenience. At this appointment, you’ll go over your symptoms with the dentist. You’ll also communicate what the first doctor or dentist told you—what they said about your diagnosis, treatment plan, and treatment schedule.
Depending on what your other doctor or dentist has said, we might recommend an at-home sleep study. Most people choose to do the test at home with one of our at home sleep study computers, or you can go to a sleep study center. A sleep study will evaluate your snoring and Sleep apnea oxygen levels during the night, indicating whether or not you have sleep apnea.
Once our professionals have confirmed your diagnosis at Beachwood Sleep Center, you can decide how to proceed. You could choose to continue treatment with your original doctor or dentist, or, depending on your recommended treatment options and personal preferences, most likely, you could decide to get your treatment through Beachwood Sleep Center. Either way, you’ll be well on your way to living longer, being healthier, and regaining sound sleep.
What Are Snoring and Sleep Apnea?
Snoring is caused when the air exiting your lungs vibrates the muscles and soft tissues in your throat. That vibration causes the snoring sound.
Many risk factors increase snoring:
- Alcohol consumption.
- Mouth and throat anatomy.
Sleep apnea is a serious medical condition that causes you to repeatedly stop breathing during the night. In one kind of sleep apnea, called obstructive sleep apnea, the throat muscles and tongue relax too much during sleep. When they relax, your muscles and tongue can block your airflow. Sleep Apnea can cause dramatic drop in blood oxygen levels, which can cause severe health issues.
What Are the Symptoms of Snoring and Sleep Apnea?
It’s generally pretty easy to tell if you snore, especially if you share a room or bed with another person. They’ll probably let you know if you snore pretty quickly. But a few other indicators can help you determine what is causing your snoring.
Snoring can be caused by:
- Seasonal allergies.
- A cold or flu.
- Alcohol consumption.
- Undiagnosed problems (sleep apnea).
Here are some snoring symptoms that might mean it’s time to visit the dentist:
- Loud snoring.
- Snoring that keeps you or your partner up at night.
- Consistently waking up with a dry mouth or a sore throat.
- Persistent snoring even with lifestyle changes, like treating allergies or reducing alcohol consumption.
Sleep apnea is not easy to identify, but once you know what to look for, it’s easier to tell if you need to visit the dentist.
Symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Gasping or choking at night.
- Excessive daytime sleepiness.
- Extremely loud snoring.
- Chest pain at night.
- Waking up consistently throughout the night.
- Being too tired
