Long Island Sleep Apnea Therapy in Bellmore, NY
Get the good night’s sleep that you deserve!
Do you frequently wake up feeling like you haven’t slept a wink, despite getting a full night of rest? Many people don’t realize that they are affected by sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a condition that occurs when the muscles in the neck and throat aren’t strong enough to maintain the delicate position of the upper palate and tongue. To learn if you would benefit from sleep apnea therapy from Dr. Germaine, please call our Long Island sleep apnea specialists today.
During slumber, a sufferer of sleep apnea will regularly be roused from the deepest, most refreshing levels of sleep. As the muscles in the throat collapse, it cuts of the supply of fresh oxygen. The body responds by loudly snoring to clear the airway, and this subsequently prevents the patient from sleeping soundly throughout the night.
To help those with sleep apnea, Dr. Germaine can provide an oral appliance. This will be worn during sleep and will be customized to fit your mouth. This mouthpiece will ensure that your muscles maintain their proper place. Many patients fear that wearing the sleep apnea therapy appliance will be uncomfortable, but the opposite has been reported from over 90% of sleep apnea therapy patients. By keeping the muscles in place, your body will be able to maintain a restful state throughout the night.
Please call us today to schedule your sleep apnea therapy appointment. Dr. Germaine sees patients from Bellmore, Levittown, Freeport, Massapequa, Oceanside, and the surrounding New York neighborhoods for sleep apnea therapy.
