Snoring, often dismissed as a mere nuisance, can be an indicator of a more severe condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). OSA is characterized by repeated interruptions in breathing during sleep, where the airway becomes temporarily blocked, leading to significant reductions in blood oxygen levels. These interruptions can occur dozens of times per hour, significantly disrupting sleep patterns and affecting overall health. The implications of untreated OSA extend beyond mere fatigue, encompassing a range of potential health risks, including high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and even the risk of premature death. It's a condition that should not be taken lightly, as its far-reaching effects can be life-threatening.

Recognizing the critical nature of this condition, Post Falls Family Dental is dedicated to offering effective sleep apnea correction services. Our approach involves a thorough evaluation to diagnose the presence of OSA, followed by personalized treatment plans tailored to address and mitigate each patient's specific needs. Whether through oral appliance therapy, which helps to keep the airway open during sleep, or by recommending further specialized treatment, our goal is to alleviate sleep apnea symptoms, including snoring. By doing so, we not only enhance the quality of your sleep but potentially safeguard your life. At Post Falls Family Dental, we understand the gravity of sleep apnea. We are committed to providing the care and expertise to help you achieve a healthier, more restful night's sleep.

Stop Snoring... Start Living!! Snoring is a very common problem. Not only does it affect the sleep of the person snoring, it also affects the bed partner. We make jokes about snoring and sleeping in separate rooms. We see internet ads and infomercials about "Stop Snoring Now!", but did you know that snoring could be a sign of something more? Under diagnosed and frequently dismissed simply as harmless, yet annoying snoring, "Obstructive Sleep Apnea" (OSA) is a very dangerous condition.

If you or a loved one snore loudly at night, please have a sleep study done to rule out this potentially fatal condition.  Please contact us to help guide you. Ready to become a patient?
