Benefits of Treatment

There are some amazing benefits patients can get from treating their obstructive sleep apnea. Our Brentwood dentist can’t wait to share with you how our sleep apnea treatments can change your life. Here are some of the ways our sleep apnea solutions can improve more than just your quality of sleep.

Improve Your Daily Energy Level

Many patients that suffer from sleep apnea have a feeling of fatigue throughout the day. Even with a normal amount of sleep every night, sleep apnea can stop patients from getting the quality restorative sleep they need. The great news is that with treatment, Dr. Rice will help you to regain the daily energy you need to keep up with your busy lifestyle.

Whether it’s more energy to get tasks accomplished at work or for your favorite hobbies, restorative sleep will give you more of the energy you need for all of your important activities.

Improves Your Sexual Health

Did you know sleep apnea affects sexual health? A study in 2009 found that men with sleep apnea had a much higher chance of also suffering from erectile dysfunction. In fact, 69 percent of the men in their study that suffered from obstructive sleep apnea also suffered from erectile dysfunction.

Sleep apnea affects the sexual health of women as well. A study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine found that women with untreated sleep apnea were more likely to suffer from sexual dysfunction. Treating sleep apnea is a vital part of sexual health for both men and women. With so many great treatment options available, there is no need to live with the symptoms.

Reduce Your Risk of Serious Health Complications

Sleep apnea can lead to a number of unnecessary health risks if left untreated. Finding a solution for obstructive sleep apnea is vital to improving your quality of life and reducing the risk of health complications. Research shows, that treating sleep apnea may help to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure. Additionally, treatment can also help improve insulin sensitivity for patients with diabetes.

Our goal is to help you achieve a long and healthy life. Whether it is our oral appliances or our NighLase® therapy, we are confident we can find a solution that will work for you.
