Lack of Sleep can have a profound effect on your quality of life. The science on the matter is clear. Not only do you miss out on restful sleep, but you can suffer from other physiological, psychological, and emotional side effects of this sleeping disorder. Sleep Solutions of San Diego is 100% committed to treating OSA through the use of Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT).
Since graduating from Washington University of Dental Medicine over 25 years ago, Dr. Morgan has become recognized as an expert in the field of Dental Sleep Medicine. From his clinical research trials, Dr. Morgan has published several research papers about using Oral Appliance Therapy to treat headaches, sleep apnea, and snoring. Dr. Morgan is an invited speaker and lecturer around the world on Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and snoring can have profoundly negative consequences in all areas of your life. Snoring and OSA are common problems that can affect your sleep, health and have a significant impact on your quality of life. Often snoring is a symptom of OSA, caused by changes in your upper airway while you sleep. Your airway may narrow, limiting airflow as you breathe. Your soft tissue may vibrate (this is commonly known as snoring), or it may completely collapse, causing you to stop breathing. Collapsing of the soft tissue is called an Obstructive Apnea, and may last for 10 seconds or more. Your airway may even move through all three stages during the night.
Some consequences that can be a result of Sleep Apnea include:
High blood pressure
Excessive daytime sleepiness
Driving and work-related accidents
A consultation at Sleep Solutions of San Diego, including a thorough sleep history evaluation and basic oral exam, is often the first step in evaluating you for any sleep disorder including OSA. If it is determined that you may need a more detailed assessment, Dr. Morgan may have you complete a 1-3 day sleep study from your own home. This test records your heartbeat, respiratory effort, airflow, blood oxygen levels, and breathing during an entire night. In addition to your primary care physician, pulmonologists, neurologists, and other physicians with specialty training in sleep disorders may be involved in making a definitive diagnosis. Sleep apnea is easily diagnosed and must not be ignored.
