Sleep Through This Test to Pass

Nothing beats a good night's sleep and waking up feeling like you hit a reset button. Experiencing deep sleep is extremely important to not only our physical health, but our mental health and ability to function throughout the day. We typically know when we didn't sleep well the night before, as our beds can seem impossible to get out of in the morning. However, we can't always understand why we didn't sleep well.

If you experience any of the following symptoms, you should consider having a sleep study:

  • Difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep
  • Waking up with a headache
  • Waking up with a dry mouth
  • Irritability
  • Excessive fatigue throughout the day
  • Difficulty concentrating throughout the day

Consider seeing a specialist in dental sleep medicine to see if you have sleep apnea. Many cases of sleep apnea go untreated, as the clear symptoms of loud snoring or gasping for air while asleep cannot be noticed by the afflicted person, or are not present symptoms at all. Anyone can suffer from sleep apnea, including children, but here are the most common contributing risk factors:

  • Male
  • Overweight
  • Over the age of forty
  • Family history
  • Small lower jaw (and other facial arrangements)
  • Chronic nasal congestion

Dr. Buck is a specialist in dental sleep medicine and is knowledgeable in several ways to treat sleep apnea in all ages, including notable in treating children. Dr. Buck also knows that the cost of an in-lab overnight sleep study can be well over $500. Dr. Buck uses the WatchPat 300 which is one of the most accurate and respected sleep testing equipment available for home use. It is also very convenient and easy to wear for children. The best part is that, for $49.00, Balance Epigenetic Orthodontics offers an exam and screening study, and review of the study.

Think you or a loved one may need a sleep study?

Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway enhancing breathing both during sleep and awake activities.

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airway into all diagnosis and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today there is a rapidly growing movement that now recognizes how dentistry can have an impact on the airway which affects breathing during sleep. If dental treatments, including TMJ, orthopedic and orthodontics are well planned the result can be that the airway is protected or even enhanced. There is a clear link between underdeveloped and retruded jaws together with narrow dental arches that puts a patient at risk for sleep breathing disorders.

WOW! A 54% decrease in forward head posture; 164% increase in the antero-posterior size of the airway; 176% increase in the lateral size of the airway all from epigenetically centered jaw development orthopedics. This is the future of orthodontics!​
