How Is Your Sleep Quality?
The quality of your sleep plays an important role in nearly every aspect of your life. If you don’t get enough good quality sleep, you can begin to experience tiredness and fatigue, making it more difficult to make it through each day. Your concentration, and your mental and physical health can also suffer in several important ways, including raising your risk of chronic health conditions in the future. Fortunately, we can help you gauge the quality of your sleep with a convenient sleep assessment, and determine if you can use custom treatment to improve it.
What is a sleep assessment?
Sleep disorders like sleep apnea can pose a risk to your health and wellbeing in many different ways. A sleep assessment can help you determine if any symptoms you notice, such as snoring or increased daytime fatigue, may be a sign of sleep apnea. Your assessment may include examining factors such as:
- Your overall weight and blood pressure
- The frequency of your snoring
- Your level of tiredness each day
- How fast you lose energy during the day
- Your breathing quality while you sleep
- Your overall mental health
- Your level of irritability, or symptoms of depression
- And more
What do I do after my assessment?
If you are diagnosed with sleep apnea, then the next step should be to design your sleep apnea treatment as soon as possible. For many patients, that includes wearing a custom-made sleep apnea appliance designed to support your oral structures, specifically your lower jaw, more comfortably. This helps ensure that your oral and throat tissues cannot obstruct your airway, allowing you to sleep peacefully and consistently every night.
