Get a Good Night’s Rest In Ruston, LA With Sleep Apnea Treatment

If you routinely wake up feeling as tired as when you went to bed, sleep apnea treatment from Ruston, LA dentist Dr. Patrick Stuckey can help you get a better night’s rest. Sleep apnea sufferers experience frequent pauses in breathing during the night when their airway becomes partially closed.

Dr. Stuckey can fit you for a custom oral appliance that will:

  • Gently shift your jaw into a position that keeps your airway open
  • Help you get a good night’s rest – along with any members of your household affected by your loud snoring and restless sleep
  • Eliminate sleep apnea symptoms such as dry mouth, headaches, and chronic sore throat
  • Help keep you more alert during the day so you can function better
  • Lower the chances you’ll experience related health conditions like high blood pressure

If you’re not sleeping well at night, call 318-225-8029 for a sleep apnea consultation. Your treatment may even be covered in part by your insurance! We’ll work with you to find out.

You May Prefer An Oral Appliance To A CPAP Machine

Dr. Stuckey can work with you and your physician to schedule a sleep apnea test. If you do have apnea, the two most common solutions are an oral appliance or a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine. Both help keep your airway open while you sleep.

Compared to a CPAP, most people find a sleep apnea mouthpiece:

  • More comfortable, because it doesn’t cover your nose and face
  • Easier to transport, because it’s small enough to fit into a pocket or a purse
  • Less restrictive, because there’s no tubing to get in the way
  • Simpler to use, because you don’t need an electrical outlet or a battery

Dr. Stuckey can also make custom mouthguards to help with other dental problems such as teeth grinding.

How do you know if you have sleep apnea? You should speak with Dr. Stuckey if you have these common sleep apnea symptoms:
