Because our team believes in the highest quality oral care, we understand that sometimes treatment isn’t just about looking at your teeth. Disorders such as sleep apnea can be just as much of a threat to your health as gum disease. Dr. Reichel is passionate about providing his patients with treatment so they can have restful sleep and prevent further complications.
Importance of Treatment
Patients may not realize that a chronic snoring problem or sleep apnea can affect their oral and overall health. Not only can it prevent you and your family from getting restful sleep, but it can also cause diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, headaches, and even life-threatening issues like stroke and heart failure if left untreated.
During your regular checkup, if we suspect you may suffer from sleep apnea, we will offer you a free, take-home Pulse-oximetry device. This will keep track of your breathing by tracking the oxygen in your blood as you sleep. If necessary, we can recommend you for an overnight sleep study, for you to be monitored, diagnosed and given treatment options.
