Our Bay Ridge dental office is unique in that we offer more than just the traditional dental services. Dr. Henry Young also treats sleep conditions such as snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is a serious condition that results from an obstruction of your upper airway while you are sleeping. Due to this obstruction, you will actually stop breathing for several seconds at a time a number of times during your sleep. Most people who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea do not notice their moments of breathlessness during the night and therefore it can go unidentified for a long time.
Sleep apnea can lead to feelings of fatigue during the day because of the disruptions to your sleep each night. If you have obstructive sleep apnea, you should schedule an appointment to see Dr. Henry Young so he can show you the effective treatments that are available to you. At our Bay Ridge dental office, we have special oral appliances that we offer to our obstructive sleep apnea patients. These oral appliances combat your sleep apnea by stopping your tongue and the surrounding tissues at the back of your mouth from blocking your airway. The small oral appliances are worn every night as you sleep, and they are comfortable and easy to carry around with you.
