Sleep Apnea Treatment Barrington

Couple struggling to sleepIf you feel tired during the day, snore excessively, suffer from nighttime heartburn or can’t breathe well when you lie down, it may be an indication that you suffer from sleep apnea. Many people who have this condition don’t realize it, writing off their symptoms as normal occurrences. At Hart Dental, our team can ensure that you get the best possible treatment for your situation.

A Full Evaluation

Once we’ve determined that you may have sleep apnea, we can arrange a sleep study at home or in the hospital. A hospital setting allows for several types of precise measurements, though at home in your normal environment may give a more accurate picture of your typical sleep cycles.

You’ll be diagnosed by a board-certified sleep physician, who interprets the results and will share them with Dr. Iwona or Dr. Aggie to determine the best course of action.

AADSM Qualified Dentist

By actively investing in her training, she is one of the few dentists in our area to have passed the AADSM exam, confirming her qualifications in treating obstructive sleep apnea. To maintain this important Qualified Dentist designation, Dr. Iwona continues to add to and update her knowledge of dental sleep medicine through recognized continuing education courses.

Treatments for Sleep Apnea

If you have mild to moderate sleep apnea, an oral appliance can be used, often in conjunction with a CPAP. The removal of your tonsils, adenoids or nasal polyps may be appropriate, though the body’s soft tissues can grow back over time.

In more severe cases, weight loss, surgery or CPAP use is advised. We’ll be involved each step of the way ensuring that you receive the best possible care and advice.
