If you suspect you struggle with a sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea, we encourage you to come visit Lowery Smiles to speak with our dentist about conducting an at-home sleep study. Dr. Siti Lowery can provide you with the proper materials and instructions to help you receive accurate results about your sleep habits.
You may have a sleep disorder if you:
- Snore frequently
- Pause your breathing during sleep
- Wake up and gasp for air
- Struggle to fall asleep
- Struggle to stay asleep
- Feel groggy or exhausted
- Have a sore throat in the morning
- Experience headaches from exhaustion
Home sleep studies are a convenient method to diagnose sleep problems without the obligation of spending the night in a medical facility. Our dentist will provide you with specific instructions to follow the day of the test to ensure your sleep habits are not compromised. We may recommend that you follow your normal routine, avoid napping, and do not drink any caffeinated beverages after lunch. Our team will provide the equipment to monitor your sleep habits. Following the study, we will evaluate the results to determine the nature of your condition, and will work with you to create a treatment plan.
Please feel free to contact our office at 919-371-2515 and schedule a consultation with our dentist if you have any questions or concerns about performing a home sleep study in Cary, North Carolina.
