Snoring

Sufficient rest and sleep are fundamental to your overall health and wellbeing. What may seem like a simple snoring problem could be a symptom of a more serious health concern. Snoring is the first, recognizable symptom that you or a loved one is not getting good sleep and may have “Sleep Disordered Breathing” (SDB). SDB is a condition characterized by repeated episodes of hypopnea (underbreathing) and apnea (not breathing) during sleep and directly affects the quality of your daily life.

Importance of Sleep

Chattanooga Sleep Associates at Lunn Dentistry understand that good nutrition and exercise are important for a person’s general health and wellbeing. We also know about the third pillar of health – the importance of a good night’s sleep! The way you feel when you are awake is the result of the quality of sleep you get at night. Damage from sleep disordered breathing can occur in an instant (such falling asleep at the wheel of a car resulting in an accident) or raise your risk for having chronic health problems. Did you know that you are more than twice as likely of having a heart attack if you have Obstructive Sleep Apnea than if you smoke?

Angela-Lunn
Dr. Angela has been treating dental patients since 1980. In discussing their health issues, Dr. Angela realized that many of her patients suffered from mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Already treating patients who had TMD/TMJ issues with oral appliance therapy, Dr. Angela realized that oral appliances would be an effective, non-invasive therapy option for patients with OSA. In 2011, Medicare approved reimbursement for custom made Oral Appliance devices for treatment of OSA and today most insurance companies reimburse as well. In addition to being a member of the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain, she is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM).
