Stop Depriving Yourself of Sleep and Health!

Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night & could not go back to sleep? Do you wake up multiple times to use the bathroom? Do you toss & turn at night? Do you wake up feeling tired & restless or rested & relaxed? Do you feel tired in the middle of the day? Do you generally feel fatigued? Do you notice your children are restless and not attentive? Does your child urinate in their bed at night while sleeping? Does your child suffer from fatigue, attention deficit disorder (ADD), or digestion issues? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this may be a sign to have your Airway evaluated by Dr. Alpan.

An Orthodontic Team You Can Rely On

As we age & become older, our sleeping pattern changes once again. Specifically, the amount of time we spend in a deep sleep is significantly altered. We tend to sleep much lighter as we age, unfortunately. From mid to late-life people tend to awaken more throughout the night. The stages of sleep appear to stay mostly constant after infancy. These disruptions in sleep cause older people to lose more & more Stage 1 & Stage 2 Non-REM sleep (REM meaning Rapid Eye Movement which is needed to stay youthful and feel regenerated upon waking). Everyone has heard of getting their beauty rest and if you don’t sleep you can’t perform properly. With Alpan Orthodontics, we can restore your health and give you the sleep you desire.

It’s Easy to Get Started

If you are suffering from sleep related or airway issues you may need a 3D CBCT scan to screen or evaluate if there is some airway obstruction. If we see some obstruction we would then follow up with a take home sleep study or a scheduled sleep evaluation at a sleep center. If you are not feeling rested in the morning & you feel tired throughout your day, start to evaluate the quality of your sleep. When people have obstructive sleep apnea they will experience hypoxic (no breathing) events at night which completely stop their breathing for some period of time.

Dr. Alpan wants to help prevent health related problems by offering Airway Orthodontics as a solution to OSA and sleep related health problems, set up your consultation online or call us at your convenience.

Frequently Asked Questions

A persons airway grows up to about age 35 & then it begins to constrict. If a normal persons airway size shrinks to below normal it will lead to OSA, which will create health problems related to sleep issues. Therefore our goal is to develop a large airway in our growing patients to help prevent OSA or sleep related issues. Dr. Alpan can treat this problem with expansion treatment of the dental arches to help maximize the physical size of the entrance to the airway. Our goal is to over expand the size of the dental arches to help effect the opening into the airway. At the same time we straighten the teeth which improves the bite & helps to keep the airway entrance open longer.

Sleep related issues including snoring is a big problem, & an early indicator of OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea) which leads to a list of health problems such as:
• Acid reflux
• Frequent night time urination (Nocturia)
• Memory loss
• Stroke
• Depression
• Diabetes
• Heart attack
• Attention Deficit Disorder
• Fatigue
• and many other associated health related symptoms

Recognizing your sleep is a very important part of healing and regenerating your body is the first step to overall health. The second step is to ask yourself the list of screening questions above and review the list of health problems. If you answered yes, and or have some of the health related problems in the list call us or set up your initial consultation online immediately.
