Finding and Treating Sleep Apnea Patients

waiting roomOne of the most exciting opportunities in the general area of dentistry these days is that of sleep medicine. A number of patients at Bogrow & Associates have been referred by dentists who simply asked basic questions like, “How well are you sleeping these days?” Then some follow-up questions at Michigan Sleep Apnea Center can zero right in on those patients who truly are bothered by Obstructive Sleep Apnea, so they can receive the treatment they need.

Alleviating Patient Fears

Southfield, MI sleep apnea treatments can help prevent sleep apnea symptoms from growing worse and can help patients get the kind of untroubled sleep they deserve. Patients who are afraid of wearing ‘the mask’ may find adequate treatment through a simple oral device which can be administered by Dr. Earl Bogrow.

Asking More Questions

We count on receiving a good number of our patients through referrals from our network of dental partners because very often they are the first to come in contact with patients having difficulty with sleeping habits. We encourage all dentists to do at least some simple screening of patients, so sleep-related issues can be investigated, and handled by qualified medical professionals.

What it Means for Sleep Apnea Patients

Sometimes people begin to think it is normal to wake up tired, they’ve done it for so long. But a few simple questions can be eye-opening for them. They may also be unaware of the wide variety of treatments available. A few basic questions is all it may take to help a patient become more aware of their condition and how beneficial treatment can be. Getting better sleep can improve many aspects of their lives including their mood, the ability to concentrate, and their overall alertness levels.

Testimonials

“When I first came to see Dr. Bogrow I was always so tired. I felt like I didn’t get a wink of sleep. That was definitely not the case because I could sleep anywhere at any time. I had a cpap machine in my closet for over two years and couldn’t bring myself to continue to use it.

I asked my doctor if a mouthpiece could possibly help me. He recommended that I speak with Dr. Bogrow, so I made my appointment and our journey began. I was fitted with my appliance and after just a few adjustments it was working beautifully! Amazingly I now sleep knowing that when I wake up in the morning I will feel new and refreshed to take on the day! I thank God for Dr. Bogrow, Barb and the entire staff for their excellent care, expertise, and how they genuinely care about me and how I feel! So if you suffer from sleep apnea please don’t hesitate to talk with Dr. Bogrow. I know he will do everything he can to help you feel good again!”
