Sleep disorders are increasingly prevalent and can have significant effects on a person’s quality of life. If not managed or treated properly, sleep disorders can lead to serious health issues including heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke. According to Kamal Patel, Director of Examine.com, 30 percent of the American population has some degree of sleep disruption. Symptoms of sleep disorders can include daytime sleepiness, snoring, pauses of breathing, and fatigue. At AZTMJ, Dr. Stan Farrell has extensive training in treating sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. Dr. Stan Farrell offers one of the leading alternatives for the CPAP, which is an oral appliance that can be used in conjunction with a CPAP or as a stand-alone oral appliance depending on the severity of the individual’s OSA. If you or someone you know might be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea, please schedule an initial consultation today with Dr. Farrell at 480-945-3629 or visit us at www.az-tmj.com for more information.
