Sleep Disorder Doctor in Davie Florida
If you are suffering from constant snoring and you are looking for a sleep disorder doctor in Davie, a smart move would be to make an appointment with Dr. Stephen J. Pyle in Weston first. Dr. Pyle is a dentist trained in the treatment of sleep apnea, a common cause of snoring. While no dentist can diagnose sleep apnea, they are in the perfect position to see the symptoms in the back of the mouth during a routine dental exam and can refer you to a sleep specialist.
Loud snoring, gasping for air, fatigue and inability to focus are all symptoms of sleep apnea, a disorder that left untreated can lead to dangerous health risks including stroke and heart attack. Until recently the most common therapy for obstructive sleep apnea was the CPAP system, a device that uses air under pressure to prevent the collapse of soft tissue located in the palate from blocking the airway. The CPAP requires the patient to wear a mask connected to an electric pump when going to bed. For obvious reasons this therapy is not tolerated by most patients and they quit after one or two months.
SomnoDent Dental Appliances – Effective, Easy to Use Therapy for Sleep Apnea
There is a better way. Dr. Pyle is a certified specialist in Oral Appliance Therapy. Oral appliances are small devices that fit in your mouth and slightly adjust the position of your jaw preventing the blockage of the airway. Patients wear them at night and they fit much like a mouth guard. You can speak normally with the appliance in place and even drink a glass of water. They are obviously a more natural approach to treating sleep apnea and are easily tolerated by patients.
Dr. Pyle has chosen to partner with what he considers the finest oral appliance, SomnoDent. Each appliance is custom fitted to ensure maximum comfort and effectiveness. The sizing and fitting are quick and easy and patients see improvement almost immediately.
