At My Family Dentistry, we’re offering the Medibyte Jr. home sleep test. Easy to wear and attach, with convenient video instructions, the Medibyte Jr. is designed to be used from the comfort and privacy of your own bed. Its small size allows you to lie comfortably, even as it gathers data about your body’s position (side, back, stomach), oxygen saturation, heart rate, air flow through the nose and mouth, and any sleep disturbances. We send the results to be verified by certified technicians, after which, you’re provided with recommendations for improving the causes and symptoms of uneasy sleep.
There’s no need to go into a clinic or spend the night in an unfamiliar environment. One trip to My Family Dentistry for the Medibyte Jr. and you can take the first step in solving your sleep issues, getting a better night’s rest, and improving your overall health.
Contact Dr. Wes About An At Home Sleep Apnea Test Today
Millions of people the world over – with 3 million in the US alone – suffer from sleep apnea. This is a condition where tissue at the back of your throat collapses, blocking your airways, causing your breathing to stop and start throughout the night. The reduced blood oxygen can then lead to you waking up repeatedly, sometimes dozens of times, though you might not even realize it. This robs your brain of oxygen and your body of the deep, restorative sleep it needs to function.
If you’re suffering from sleep apnea and it’s affecting your quality of life, it’s important to see your dentist as soon as possible. In addition to suggesting the right appliance for minimizing the symptoms, you can learn about other changes you can make to reduce your chances of suffering from the condition at all. Dr. Wes Mullins at My Family Dentistry, along with an experienced team, understands the causes and treatment of sleep apnea. We can help you get a better night’s sleep and enjoy improved wellbeing.
