Waking up to the dangers of sleep disorders.
Although there is a growing awareness of the impact of sleep disorders on health, many people are unaware that they have them. At The Hindin Center, as a part of our normal screening process, we ask patients if they have any of the common symptoms associated with sleep disorders, including:
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
- Loud, disruptive snoring
- Depression and irritability
- Sexual dysfunction
- Morning headaches
- Heart palpitations
- Memory loss or limited attention
If we uncover problematic symptoms (and after consulting with a patient’s physician), we can employ a variety of state-of-the-art oral devices at the Hindin Center for overcoming sleep disorders. We also use as a proprietary monitoring system to help assess the effectiveness of a corrective device.
With the aid of our comprehensive evaluation, testing and treatment, patients routinely experience dramatic relief from snoring, sleep apnea, head, and facial pain connected to the TMJ (temporomandibular joint). We have also freed patients from CPAP (Continuous Positive Air Pressure) masks, a commonly prescribed solution that most sleep apnea sufferers find extremely uncomfortable and often don’t use.
And, incidentally, sleep disorders don’t only affect adults. When a child is sleepy, snores, and generally does not get a good night’s sleep, he or she may be suffering from a sleep-related breathing disorder that could be misdiagnosed. Oral devices have been shown to be effective for children with mild and moderate sleep apnea and other sleep disturbances.
