Do sleep clinics help insomnia?
Sleep clinics can help with sleep problems like insomnia. With insomnia, the thing about it is that it can be either a condition or a symptom of a condition. Either way, though, a sleep clinic professional will be able to help. Sometimes insomnia is caused by poor sleep habits or bad habits like eating too much too late in the evening, while other times the condition is caused by a sleep-related disorder like restless leg syndrome. There are many other possible causes of insomnia, any of which can be addressed by a sleep clinic professional.
Read on to learn more about what these professionals can do and how they can treat conditions like insomnia.
What does a sleep specialist doctor do?
A sleep doctor addresses and treats sleep problems. A sleep doctor can refer a patient for a sleep study or, when necessary, network with a neurologist to treat a complex sleep condition like restless leg syndrome. In general, a sleep doctor provides general sleep medicine for patients. Here at Koala® Center for Sleep & TMJ Disorders, our sleep doctors practice dental sleep medicine as a component of general sleep medicine, and dental sleep medicine can be highly effective for a condition like sleep apnea.
For a condition like insomnia, treatment depends on the cause of your particular case, but may entail changing your sleep habits, addressing stress, medication, or behavioral therapy. There’s actually a kind of behavioral therapy specifically for insomnia, and it’s called cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I). Sometimes, like when insomnia is a symptom of a condition like sleep apnea, the best treatment is oral appliance therapy.
Sleep doctors can treat other common sleep issues and conditions like poor sleep, restless sleep, narcolepsy, restless leg syndrome, REM sleep behavior disorder, bruxism, and others.
When should I see a sleep specialist?
You should go see a sleep doctor if you’ve been struggling with sleep for a while now. If your sleep is restless, if you’re not sleeping well at all, if you’re snoring loudly, if your breathing stops and starts repeatedly during sleep, or if you’re having any other related issues, see a sleep doctor. You should definitely see a sleep doctor if your issue is affecting your everyday life and your overall health. Also, a condition like sleep apnea can be especially serious if it’s left untreated, possibly leading to behavioral issues in children or chronic and crippling health conditions in adults, like diabetes. Please consider these matters and have your sleep problem addressed by a professional!
At our clinic, we’ve found that one of the most effective treatments for a condition like sleep apnea is oral appliance therapy. This treatment is proven to be very effective, so we’re proud to provide it here at Koala® Center for Sleep & TMJ Disorders. Contact us today to learn more.
