River Valley Smile Center Is Now Offering Sleep-Aid Assistance For Those Suffering From Sleep Apnea
FORT SMITH, Ark. , March 20, 2019 (Newswire.com) - River Valley Smile Center, a leading dental practice in Fort Smith, Ark., is now offering sleep-aid assistance for those suffering with sleep apnea: a serious sleep disorder that occurs when a person's breathing is interrupted during sleep. This value-added service is another way that River Valley Smile Center is helping their patients achieve optimal, comprehensive health.
Sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, have become a significant health issue in the United States, according to the American Sleep Apnea Association. It is estimated that 22 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea, with 80 percent of the cases of moderate and severe obstructive sleep apnea undiagnosed.
Symptoms of sleep apnea may include loud snoring, episodes in which one stops breathing during sleep, gasping during sleep, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), dry mouth, headaches, insomnia, excessive sleepiness (hypersomnia), difficulty concentrating, irritability and more, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Sleep aids can help those suffering with sleep apnea gain better rest and a full night’s sleep is an important necessity for overall good health. Deficient sleep caused by sleep apnea can result in high blood pressure, ADHD, obesity, depression, dementia, impaired memory, difficulty concentrating, diabetes, stroke, heart attack and more. Getting sufficient sleep does not only improve overall health in many areas but should also improve concentration, focus and memory.
River Valley Smile Center is a comprehensive dental practice which offers an array of services including: cosmetic and restorative dentistry, whitening, veneers, clear braces, same day crowns, root canals, oral surgery, gum treatment, children’s dentistry, implants and more. The collective team of committed dental professionals includes two dentists, Dr. Liggett and Dr. Cole Johnson.
Like oral healthcare, good sleep is integral to one’s overall health. Treatment for sleep disorders, like sleep apnea, is covered by many insurance providers.
