Dr. Walter Heidary General Dentist: Helping You Get A Good Night’s Rest
At our clinic, we understand that you have a lot going on in your busy life, and that not getting a good night’s rest can be stressful and exhausting. At Desired Sleep dental clinic, our goal is to help you get the sleep you need. Whether you have suffered from sleep deprivation for many years, or you have recently been diagnosed with a sleep disorder, we are here to help.
Signs You Need Help
Most people experience sleep deprivation at one point in their life. The point at which you should seek help is when there is no obvious reason to lose sleep, and you are experiencing one or more of the following issues:
- Sleepiness during the day
- Trouble staying asleep
- Snoring loudly
- Shortness of breath upon awakening
- Headaches in the morning
- Dry mouth upon awakening
Of course, there are also other signs that may indicate the need for help. Getting professional advice can help you with your sleep disorder. The staff at our clinic will lead you through our five step process to enjoy better sleep.
How the Process Works
The following points outline our 5-step approach to better sleep:
We conduct a detailed screening process to evaluate the symptoms you have experienced. This gives us a good idea of what issues you are experiencing. The screening includes social and medical histories as well as an assessment of the head, neck, and oral features. Models, photos, x-rays, and other aspects may also be included.
After a thorough examination, you complete a home sleep study with a medical device that records information. This is done in your home to ensure that you are in a relaxing environment and sleep patterns are the same as every night.
Your home sleep study will be interpreted by a licensed medical doctor and they will provide us with a medical diagnosis. Your doctor reviews the sleep study results to determine a diagnosis. Some possible diagnoses include snoring issues or light, moderate, or severe obstructive sleep apnea.
Each patient is different. Your diagnosis and may include changes in lifestyle, oral appliance therapy, or surgery. We will help you to determine your solution in conjunction with your own doctors.
We are available to answer questions, help you manage changes, and seek a new course of treatment if it is needed.
