Staten Island Sleep Apnea Solutions That Actually Work

There’s More to Your Snoring Than You Think

Sleep apnea in Staten Island is a bigger oral and overall health issue than most people know about. It affects so many of our patients and millions of Americans, mainly showing up while you sleep in the form of disruptive snoring, and issues with your breathing. The problem is sometimes you don’t know your snoring is an issue or you’re waking up constantly throughout the night making it impossible to peacefully sleep. Headaches, chronic fatigue, and excessive daytime drowsiness can become the new norm. We’re here to help you choose relief.

What Should I Know About Sleep Apnea?

Your dentists in Tottenville can show you why sleep apnea can be potentially life-threatening because it means you’re stopping breathing while you think you’re busy dreaming. There are so many people who can tell you stories about their own snoring, a loved one’s snoring, or other symptoms of sleep apnea like restless nights and memory impairment that make life “fun.” Sleep apnea can have a big impact on your overall health, so it’s a condition that shouldn’t go overlooked. However, it’s something that can be tricky to diagnose. It’s best to talk to Dr. Ratner and Dr. Pisapia about your symptoms and how they affect your days and nights.

Should I Watch Out For?

Sleep is where your body rejuvenates itself while also getting rest. When a condition like sleep apnea gets in the way, things can take a turn for the worse in terms of your overall health — not just the quality of your nightly slumber. Some of the most common symptoms of sleep apnea in Tottenville (aside from loud snoring) tend to include:

  • Insomnia and nightmares
  • Episodes with limited mouth breathing
  • Dry mouth
