TMJ/TMD Treatment and Sleep Apnea Solutions in Elmhurst, IL

Ever been kept up by a snoring partner? Or perhaps you’re constantly fatigued during the day and unsure why? It might be time to consider the link between dental health and sleep. At Cottage Hill Dental Care, we’re not just about keeping those pearly whites shining. We’re here to address some root causes that might be affecting your nighttime rest. Let’s dive in!

Sleep Apnea Treatments We Offer: Beyond the Mask

For many, the word “sleep apnea” brings to mind images of clunky machines and masks — yep, we’re talking about the CPAP. While CPAP is a common treatment, it isn’t the only route. We offer an alternative that’s sleek and easy:

Oral Appliances

Imagine ditching that CPAP machine for a simple mouthpiece designed by a dentist who specializes in sleep health. Dr. Mohammad Al-Asadi provides custom-fit oral appliances that reposition the jaw ever so slightly to ensure an open airway throughout the night. A smaller, simpler solution for a massive health concern. Come in for a consultation and we’ll find out if this option is right for you!

Recognizing the Intruder: Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea can be sneaky. Here’s how to spot it:

  • Snoring: Significantly loud snoring can be an obvious indicator.
  • Gasping for Air: Interrupted breathing or choking sensations during sleep.
  • Feeling Drained: Daytime fatigue even after a full night’s rest.
  • Mood Swings: Irritability or difficulty concentrating.

What to Expect During a Sleep Apnea Screening

If the word “screening” feels intimidating, don’t worry. Think of it as a conversation. Dr. Al-Asadi will discuss your sleep habits, go over any symptoms you’ve noticed, and may recommend a sleep study for a comprehensive view. This isn’t about pointing fingers; it’s about teaming up to find solutions to aid your health and well-being. Dental health greatly impacts overall health!

  • Transparent Pricing: We lay out the costs clearly. No riddles, no mysteries.
