Is a Sleep Study Necessary Before Seeing a Sleep Dentist?

Question of the Week – Is a Sleep Study Necessary Before Seeing a Sleep Dentist?

Dr. Lydia Sosenko, your Naperville Sleep Dentist, answers the question, “Should a person get a sleep study before coming to see you?” She suggests that you contact them at Dental Sleep and TMD Center of Illinois as soon as possible. They will provide you with steps needed to expedite the whole process. If someone is being prevented from coming because they have not had a sleep study (test), she suggests to let them come in anyway.

A Sleep Dentist can help with snoring and sleep apnea. Call (630) 369-5508 with any questions or concerns you might have about a sleep study and how to expedite the process in order to receive help.

“Beauty Sleep” – Great Sleep Affects Beauty

Great Sleep Affects Beauty

Beauty sleep is important to your health Great sleep affects beauty

Sleep affects beauty. For quite some time, science has measured that “deep, tired look” of patients who suffer with sleep disturbances.

Studies show that patients who resolve their sleep issues often enjoy scientifically-measured improvements in their facial skin. Less redness and forehead puffiness are just two of the noticeable and measurable improvements that can result with improved sleep.

In addition, observers who viewed photos of sleep apnea patients after successful treatment often cited these patients as being more attractive, youthful and alert.

Many studies reveal that only about 50% of patients are using their prescribed CPAP treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. Luckily, many of these CPAP patients who we now treat with Oral Appliance Therapy are enjoying overall improvements in their sleep. After successful treatment, many times we see improvements which may include:

  • less dreary eyes
  • less puffiness around the eyes
  • less redness around the nose
  • less visible strap lines (from attempted CPAP use)
  • much less ’grumpiness’ factor

If you are not getting good quality and quantity of sleep, it’s important to review possible reasons. Many sleep disorders have profound implications on heart disease, diabetes, weight gain and more. A lack of sleep affects “beauty” inside and out.
