Say Good Night To Sleep Problems
Everyone misses a little sleep now and then. But if your sleeping difficulties become chronic or long-term, you may have a sleep disorder. Some common sleep disorders include insomnia, sleep apnea and narcolepsy. Sleepwalking, night terrors and nightmares, bedwetting, headaches, nocturnal seizures and sexual dysfunction may also be symptoms of an underlying sleep disorder.
Effective treatment options
Depending on the nature of your problem, we may perform a preliminary sleep study to develop an accurate diagnosis. At a follow-up consultation, we discuss your test results, address any further testing that is necessary and recommend effective treatment options. And rest assured, we send all your test records and results to your primary care physician.
Treatments may include:
- Changes in sleep habits, schedules and conditions
- Dental devices
- Exercise programs
- Medication (over-the-counter and/or prescription)
- Modifications of consumption habits, such as eating, drinking alcohol and smoking
- Stress management
- Weight-loss programs
- Non-surgical airway pressure
- Surgical restructuring of airway
