Sleep disorder breathing is one of the most under diagnosed, yet severely debilitating issues in medicine today. It is estimated that over 90% of people suffering the effects of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) go undiagnosed. Sleep disorders are scientifically related to hypertension, stroke, obesity, diabetes, GERD, impotence and many other ailments. The documented secondary effects of OSA include loss of productivity, accidents, emotional and psychological problems.
Our goal at Dental Sleep Institute of Carlsbad is to educate patients about the grave risks associated with OSA and customize treatment that allows them to have natural, healthy sleep patterns that greatly improve their financial, physical, and emotional health.
It is truly rewarding when we can improve our patients quality of life. The real trick is making patients aware that a sleep related issue may be their problem. Once diagnosed, we develop a custom interdisciplinary therapy that fits their situation. For additional information regarding OSA surf our site or call our office Dental Sleep Institute of Carlsbad at 760 634-8100 for an appointment. If you are concerned you may have a sleep disorder take the short questionnaires that are downloadable in the sleep apnea section of our website. If you have been previously diagnosed with sleep apnea and are inconsistent with your CPAP therapy, consult our treatment section for additional sleep treatment possibilities.
