Did you know that over 20 million Americans are currently suffering from sleep apnea and another 20 million are dealing with various other sleep-disordered breathing problems every single night? In other words, more than 10% of Americans simply aren’t getting the sleep they need, drastically increasing their risks for both mental and physical health problems. Sleep apnea sufferers often have to deal with chronic fatigue, sudden mood swings, problems with focus, and hypertension. Between all of these issues, the end result is a person whose quality of life and health are drastically compromised.
However, sleep apnea is completely treatable, and the team at The Columbus Sleep Center has the tools and the knowledge to help the people of Central Ohio struggling with this problem so they can start living their best life.
That’s right, Dr. Eric Buck is actually a highly-trained and experienced dentist. If you’re like most people who are new to our practice, you’re probably asking, “How can a dentist help with a sleep issue?” We’re so glad you asked!
Sleep apnea actually physically occurs in the mouth and throat, and in order to prevent harmful symptoms, a doctor needs to have an extensive working knowledge of the area. Who knows more about the mouth than a dentist? Thanks to his dental training and hundreds of hours of continuing education specially dedicated to sleep apnea, Dr. Buck is able to help patients sleep symptom-free through the use of small, custom-made oral appliances that comfortably fit over the teeth and keep the airway open.
In other words, if you are currently dealing with persistent sleep issues or have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, Dr. Buck is ready and able to help. To schedule a consultation at The Columbus Sleep Center, contact us today.
