Come to our sleep disorders center near you where you’ll find lasting relief from your sleep disorder and what you’ll need for a good night’s sleep.
What are the consequences of poor sleep?
Whether a person has or doesn’t have a sleep disorder, the consequences of poor sleep are the same. Each and every person will struggle in everyday life and experience the same problems, but sleep disorders can make matters much worse in other ways.
A good night’s sleep is so important because during sleep, the body recuperates and regenerates, which is essential to health and wellbeing. The quality of our sleep also affects the regulation of our hormones, appetites, immune systems, and heart health, so when we miss out on sleep, these things suffer. Poor sleep makes obesity, diabetes, and depression significantly more likely, and these conditions can complicate our health and sleep even more.
If your sleep isn’t what it should be, or if you’ve noticed this in a loved one, then we’d really like to help you here at Koala® Center for Sleep and TMJ Disorders.
What does a sleep disorders center do?
This type of health clinic is dedicated to treating patients with sleep disorders. Many of these clinics, like Koala® Center for Sleep and TMJ Disorders, practice dental sleep medicine. For many patients with sleep issues and disorders like snoring and sleep apnea, quite often the issue is caused or complicated by problems with the jaw, tongue, or throat. In fact, with sleep apnea in particular, the underlying cause is often a disorder with the jaw joint (temporomandibular joint or TMJ) or with an obstruction caused by the tongue and/or the throat muscles. Clinics that practice dental sleep medicine treat these underlying issues in particular.
With Koala® Center for Sleep and TMJ Disorders, you can be treated for conditions like TMJ disorders, chronic fatigue, snoring, insomnia, sleep apnea, and others. And while in many cases, other sleep disorder centers might recommend CPAP therapy with a CPAP machine, we recommend a more convenient and comfortable alternative.
How are sleep disorders treated?
Oral appliance therapy is recommended by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, and for most patients with sleep apnea, TMJ issues, and a problem with snoring, it works exceptionally well. With oral appliance therapy, a simple oral appliance helps to keep the tongue, throat, and TMJ relaxed and resting in their natural position. This is precisely what many patients need, so we provide oral appliance therapy here at Koala® Center for Sleep and TMJ Disorders.
Additionally, for our young patients, we offer the KoalaKIDZzz® program that provides care for children with sleep-disordered breathing. If your child is suffering from this, then we would be very happy to help. Reach out to us today.
