Treat Sleep Apnea And Other Sleep Problems In Cincinnati
Welcome to Cincinnati Dental Sleep Medicine, where Drs. Kitzmiller and their team are committed to treating patients for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea in Milford OH so that they can enjoy more restful sleep and a better quality of life!
Dental Sleep Medicine
Dental Sleep Medicine is the unique and relatively new area of practice that partners physicians and dentists in the recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB). Although snoring, an indication of SDB, seems merely annoying and physically harmless, it is often an indication for a much more serious and sometimes fatal condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
Both Drs. Kitzmiller and their caring, well-educated team have been uniquely trained in the field of Dental Sleep Medicine and in the use of oral appliance therapy to treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnea near Cincinnati & Loveland OH.
The Impact of Poor Sleep
There’s nothing better than a sound night’s sleep to get us going in the morning, so we can be refreshed, recharged, and ready to take on another day. When you sleep well, you’re more productive, creative, and sociable throughout the day.
For many adults, getting a good night’s sleep is often a major problem because they have sleep problems or excessive snoring.
Every day, doctors hear from both men and women that they have a loss of energy, feel weary throughout the day, or have trouble falling asleep. Some patients even report waking up in the middle of the night and have difficulty falling back to sleep. Many complain that their bed partners snoring loudly and then gasp for breath throughout the night.
Even though many people are spending seven to eight hours in bed, they’re actually spending less time sleeping, leading to exhaustion and other symptoms of restless sleep.
If you have sleep problems or excessive snoring, you may be feeling exhausted and generally inept all day. You may even try to stay awake to avoid the restless feeling that comes with your sleep troubles, a decision you’re going to pay for it with a lower quality of life.
Among the many consequences of poor or inadequate rest, you may also suffer from a suppressed immune system, memory problems, and cardiac issues. You can learn more about the effects of restless sleep on this page.
Major Reasons Why You May Not Be Getting A Good Night’s Sleep
By the time you’ve reached puberty, your personal sleep pattern is set. When you are aging gracefully, leading an active and involved life, you are much better able to preserve the pattern of restorative sleep you had when you were 12.
What begins to change as you get older, however, is not your need for a good night’s sleep but rather your ability to get a good night’s sleep on a regular basis. This can be brought about by a variety of causes. Restless Leg Syndrome, depression, and anxiety are often the underlying concerns that result in poor sleep in most middle-aged adults.
These problems have to be addressed with your physician. Once a treatment program is started, the temporary insomnia you are suffering often clears up fairly rapidly.
Aside from these concerns, there are other potential underlying causes of sleep problems that you should consider. The fragmented, disturbed sleep of middle-aged adults can also be the result of sleep apnea— the most dangerous sleep disturbance— or narcolepsy. Sleep problems involving sleep apnea need to be addressed immediately.
