Franklin Lakes, NJ – Matthew Krieger DMD is a family and cosmetic dentistry offering sleep apnea and snoring treatment, to its clients in Franklin Lakes. Sleep apnea is one of the more serious sleeping disorders which is caused by an obstructed airway, causing one’s breathing to pause during sleep. The pause in breathing is not always a one-time occurrence during the night as it can happen several times.
Dr. Krieger said, “Sleep apnea affects over 18 million Americans. And despite comfortable and affordable treatment options, only 25% seek treatment. Undiagnosed and untreated sleep apnea can impact a person’s daily and professional life. Just look at the recent news. Many people don’t think of snoring as a warning sign for a serious issue like sleep apnea.” People with undiagnosed sleep apnea are up to ten times more likely to have a motor vehicle accident as a result of sleepiness, sometimes with fatal results. If left undiagnosed the effects of sleep apnea can seriously impact your professional life.
There are two kinds of sleep apnea to be aware of; obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and central sleep apnea (CSA). OSA, which is the most common type of sleep apnea, is when one’s airway is blocked by soft tissues located at the back of the throat as one doze off.
Central sleep apnea is a disorder in which one’s breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. CSA, is not a result of a blocked airway, but rather more serious; it’s when your brain works less effective. With the lack of oxygen, an individual’s brain can no longer send the right signals to the lungs. The lack of efficiency in breathing results in an unstable respiratory control center.

Symptoms of sleep apnea include snoring, daytime sleepiness or fatigue, dry mouth or a sore throat, morning headaches, trouble concentrating, forgetfulness, depression or irritability. The Office Dr. Krieger and Dr. Hur offers Sleep Apnea and Snoring Treatment for their clients in the Franklin Lakes area who seek treatment for symptoms of sleep apnea. If left untreated, it can result in a wide range of associated health problems such as high blood pressure, an increased risk of stroke, heart problems such as irregular heartbeats, heart attacks or heart failure, diabetes, a nagging feeling of depression, constant headaches, and in some cases even death. Some general cures for sleep apnea are as easy as lifestyle changes. It might be time to hit the treadmill, lose some weight, change sleeping positions for better breathing, or ditching the cigarettes.
The more serious cases of sleep apnea might need one to go through Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy or even surgery. Alternatively, if one doesn’t fancy the idea of wearing a mask while sleeping or going under the knife, there are simple, affordable and easy to acquire dental appliances that are more comfortable and tolerable to wear. Oral or dental appliances have the ability to cure sleep apnea and snoring by maintaining an open airway while you sleep.
