Tracking Your Sleep at Home

We've become obsessed with sleep, always chasing the ever-elusive prospect of getting the recommended eight hours we can never seem to get. New pillows, new mattresses, new routine, new blankets, new this, new that, sometimes nothing helps. To conquer this dilemma, new, previously unimaginable methods for tracking sleep are within the grasp of people across the country.

Sleep disorders seem to be running rampant. The CDC has declared sleep disorders a public health epidemic and new evidence comes to light all the time tying sleep disorders to countless other health issues. Sleep is essential to the body's rebuilding process and crucial to overall wellness. A lack of sleep can be devastating and some of the most common issues contributing to poor sleep quality are those stemming from the airway.

Preliminary Sleep Disorder Diagnosis Is More Accessible Than Ever

In our seemingly endless quest to develop the most innovative tools imaginable, the sleep tracking industry has become more accessible than ever. General consumers and patients alike can now monitor their sleep from the comfort of their own homes, often using the technologies already in their homes.

  • WatchPat 300 - Dr. Buck recommends the WatchPat 300 for at home sleep testing. Not only is this device convenient and easy for children to wear, but it is also one of the most accurate and well-respected pieces of equipment available.
  • Wearable technology - Wearable technologies like smartwatches have witnessed an explosion in innovation. What once was solely used to tell time, now has the capability to track sleep cycles and O2 intake.
  • Snore tracking apps - Phones have had the capability to record sound for some time, but given the booming sleep industry, these features have now been adapted to monitor snoring. Wondering what everyone else hears while you're sleeping is a thing of the past now. By using one of several smartphone apps snorers can monitor their breathing by recording audio evidence.

Before Modern Sleep Tracking

Prior to sleep tracking technology, we were left to rely on secondhand accounts of our snoring from someone else or by judging our sleep based on the way we feel the next morning. Modern technology has allowed us to take a long hard look at the facts about our sleep and while there are new over-the-counter technologies popping up every day, a sleep study conducted by an experienced professional remains the best option for the resolution of sleep ailments.

DR. BUCK'S PHILOSOPHY

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.
