Do you desire more peaceful sleep?

Do you wish you could consistently wake up refreshed and feel like you have more energy throughout the day?

Your desire for more peaceful sleep, to wake up rejuvenated, and have more energy throughout the day, is important.

You might be in a situation where your doctor has said you need to be getting more rest. Perhaps you have some other health problems, like weight issues, that contribute to your struggle.

Or perhaps you’re concerned because no one in your house is sleeping through the night due to your heavy snoring.

We’re willing to bet, you probably also suffer from early morning headaches and unexplainable fatigue even after 8 hours of sleep!
Regardless of the reasons, if you’re having trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep, keep reading.

The truth is, your desire to sleep peacefully and wake up refreshed may be impossible to fulfill due to physical problems. Physical problems that no amount of sleep, diet, or drugs are likely to resolve.

While sleep CAN be improved by implementing more consistency, making changes to what you eat, and other aspects of life…if you are suffering from a sleep disorder, those steps are very likely to have little to no impact.

A sleep disorder is a condition that causes chronic sleep deprivation and negatively impacts a person’s quality of life. “Sleep disorders are a group of conditions that are characterized by either poor quality or quantity of sleep,” says Abhinav Singh, MD, the medical director of the Indiana Sleep Center. “In some instances, this can include poor quality of wakefulness that interferes with optimal daytime functioning.”

Sleep disorders can include:

  • Insomnia, especially chronic insomnia.
  • Sleep-related breathing disorders, such as snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
  • Central disorders of hypersomnolence, such as narcolepsy and idiopathic hypersomnia.
  • Circadian rhythm sleep-wake disorders, including jet lag and delayed sleep-wake phase disorder.
  • Parasomnias, such as sleepwalking, rapid eye movement (REM) behavior disorder, and sleep paralysis.
  • Sleep-related movement disorders, like restless leg syndrome.

And it turns out, Sleep Disorders are common:

  • 30% of survey respondents have been reportedly diagnosed with a sleep disorder (SingleCare, 2021).
  • 50 to 70 million adults in the U.S. are affected by a sleep disorder (American Sleep Association [ASA], 2021).
  • 25 million adults in the U.S. have obstructive sleep apnea (ASA, 2021).
  • Every year, 30% to 40% of adults in the U.S. report symptoms of insomnia at some point annually.

One of the most common sleep disorders is Sleep Apnea.

It can be difficult to know that you are suffering from Sleep Apnea because the condition and events which surround it are all occurring while you are sleeping.

Many people only discover they have Sleep Apnea because someone else is able to tell them, after observing clear signs.

This can include snoring, stopping breathing in your sleep, frequently moving in your sleep.

You might also yourself experience:

  • Extreme drowsiness during the day
  • Personality changes and irritability
  • Difficulty staying asleep
  • Waking up with a very dry or sore throat
  • Frequent morning headaches
  • Short term memory lapses (especially in the morning)

The dangers of untreated Sleep Apnea are varied and depend upon YOUR individual condition and experience.

Untreated sleep apnea raises your risk factors for high blood pressure, motor vehicle accidents, heart disease and attack, stroke, diabetes, and other serious medical conditions.

If you desire better, more peaceful sleep, and to wake up refreshed with full energy during the day…

The first thing you should consider is finding out whether or not you are suffering from any form of Sleep Apnea, or another sleep disorder. If you are, all other efforts to improve your sleep will, at the very least, be hindered, if not made pointless without the proper treatment to handle the root causes.

As an easy first step, try our simple quiz to better understand your condition:

This will give you a point of reference for moving forward. If you are concerned with your results, or simply need clarity, our team is here to help you find comfort and ultimately get you back to living your happiest, healthiest, most energetic life.

If your results show that you need to take the next step, you should schedule a sleep study with your primary physician where you’ll be given an official diagnosis.

If diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea, our team would like to see you for an Oral Appliance Therapy evaluation.

“We start each new patient evaluation with an in-depth conversation discussing your sleep habits and schedule,” says Sleep Better Lexington’s Dr. Trish Takacs. “Then we’ll perform a series of physical exams to evaluate the alignment and function of your teeth, jaws, neck and nasal passageways.”

Dr. Takacs says these tests are nothing to worry about as there’s typically no pain or discomfort, and they are performed conveniently in our office. You should be in and out of the office in 60-90 minutes.

Here are the evaluations you can expect at your new patient exam:

Cone Beam CT: provides a 3D image of airways, teeth, and jaws (basically an X-ray).

Head and Neck Exam: physical look at the teeth, tongue, jaws, and head and neck muscles to study how they move and interact with one another. This data will help us decide how to best treat your sleep apnea and eliminate that loud snoring and labored, sporadic breathing keeping you (and your partner) up at night.

If this sounds like you…Don’t wait! Let’s find out if you have a sleep disorder and get started treating it before lasting harm can occur.
