Sleep apnea struggles in Chicago?

Sleep apnea struggles in Chicago?

Sleep apnea treatment in Chicago could be the solution

This last year forced us to change our lives in drastic ways that has understandably brought on a lot of stress and possible creates issues with sleep apnea in Chicago. And the more stress that we have in our lives, the less rested we tend to be and the higher the chance of having a poor sleep cycle.

Stress is one thing — living with a condition called sleep apnea adds a whole new layer of exhaustion into the mix. Sleep apnea involves the cessation of breath during sleep, causing you to toss and turn and achieve only a light, low quality sleep.

Living this way can be extremely overwhelming and cause great physical and mental torment. Trying to find the root cause of your sleep issues can be confusing, misleading and down right frustrating. At Meyer Dental Group we believe that sleep apnea treatment in Chicago should be simple, attainable and affordable. 

Don’t let misleading information trap you into a cycle of uncertainty that could eventually lead to the loss of your life.

Looking for a holistic dentist in Chicago?

Looking for a holistic dentist in Chicago?

Integrative dentistry could be the solution

At the end of the day, most of us want to achieve the healthiest and strongest version of ourselves to enjoy a more fulfilling quality of life. In the process of achieving that, you may be seeking a holistic dentist Chicago who uncovers and treats your health problems at the root cause — rather than just dealing with the symptoms or disguising pain as it presents.

As all systems of the body are inherently interconnected, treating only the symptom without deeper investigation can lead to band-aids fixes. These fixes are typically quite costly and neglect the other forces contributing to your issue. 

A lack of accessibility and knowledge about holistic dentistry as an integrative dental approach may prevent you from achieving the optimal health and wellbeing you desire. At Meyer Dental Group, we believe that seeking a holistic dentist Chicago should not be frustrating, disappointing and misleading.

How can Meyer Dental Group help?

In your pursuit of a better quality of life, you deserve assistance from Dr. Tom Meyer who: 

  1. Has 30+ years of dental experience, including dental implant/dentures solutions
  2. Is a Member of the International College of Craniomandibular Orthopedics
  3. Is a Member of the American Dental Society 

What is holistic dentistry / integrative dentistry, exactly?

The term “holistic” can often imply the use of all-natural, non-invasive approaches to curing pain and health problems. However, this is not entirely accurate — and nor is it typically credible or safe. 

Confusion around this topic might deter you from seeking integrative approaches that can drastically help solve a multitude of your overall health struggles. 

According to the Oxford English dictionary, the term holistic means: “Characterized by comprehension of the parts of something as intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole.”

Within dentistry, the word holistic can encompass the use of safe and effective tools and materials to address problems patients may be experiencing in relation to their different oral health systems — all of which ultimately affect each other. 

For example, if you’re struggling with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), you likely have a misaligned jaw and/or you are grinding your teeth at night, wearing down on the jaw joint. 

The wear and tear of this can also cause damage to the health and strength of your teeth, cause muscle soreness and pain in your body and as well as debilitating headaches. The jaw pain you’re suffering from TMJ is not mutually exclusive from other oral health problems — these connections are taken into account by an integrative or holistic dentistry approach.

Consequences of not taking an integrative/holistic dentistry approach:

Sometimes, we just want our pain and the problems to go away in an instant. Don’t settle for the quick, cheaper fix. While this may be more convenient in the short-term, it can only create more expensive and intensive dental work down the road. Instead: 

  • Stop feeling confused
  • End the uncertainty 
  • Don’t settle for second best 
  • Prevent skewed expectations
  • Avoid expensive future dental work

Live life more fully with integrative solutions

  • Feel confident in your decisions 
  • Gain greater health knowledge
  • Solve the root cause of your issues
  • Pursue a happier quality of life 
  • Choose a long-term, affordable solution

You are in complete control of achieving the health and quality of life that you want to have. Don’t let confusion, uncertainty and a discrepancy in expectations about integrative/holistic dentistry approaches deter you from greater overall systemic health. 

Instead, become an active participant in your journey towards a life with less pain, better understanding and reduced struggle. Exchange that for greater energy and the ability to be more present with others and with yourself due to improved health with integrative dentistry solutions.

While missing teeth could be the cause of many of your existing dental health issues, the root cause of your teeth loss could be tied in with other, undetected issues.

Sleep Apnea Myths That Can Endanger Your Health

Sleep Apnea Myths That Can Endanger Your Health

Tired of being tired and feeling terrible? Living with sleep apnea, a condition where your breathing is interrupted during sleep, is painful, upsetting and overwhelming. It can be especially difficult to manage  due to the prevalence of sleep apnea myths, which can be confusing, prevent you from seeking proper treatment and are costly to your health — and your wallet. 

Getting trapped in a web of this disorienting information can cause you to feel frustrated, stressed  and hopeless. As sleep apnea treatment providers,  Meyer Dental Group believes that sleep apnea solutions should be straightforward, accessible and affordable. 

Don’t let the following sleep apnea myths lock you into the common sleep apnea cycle of physical torment, compromised cognitive function and depression — a cycle that could eventually lead to the loss of your life. 

5 Common Sleep Apnea Myths 

1. Sleep apnea is not a big deal

As subtly as they may occur,  brief interruptions in breathing can cause extreme tiredness, increase risk of obesity, high blood pressure, heart failure, hormonal damage and could lead to stroke among many other health implications. It is a BIG deal. 

2. Only people who snore have sleep apnea

While snoring is a common symptom of sleep apnea, some people who are diagnosed with the disorder do not snore. In fact, in severe cases, your airway can be blocked completely, preventing snoring. 

3. Sleep apnea is specific to seniors

Although sleep disorders are more likely to affect the elderly than younger individuals, sleep apnea can also impact children and young adults as well depending on the structure of their mouth’s airways.

4. Surgery is necessary to treat sleep apnea

You don’t need to go through grueling, nightmarish surgery to resolve your sleep apnea. It is treatable through non-invasive approaches that Dr. Tom Meyer offers. Surgery is often only recommended for very advanced cases.

5. Sleep apnea only affects overweight individuals

While sleep apnea can be a consequence of weight gain, it is often caused by the design of your mouth’s airways based on your genetics. Sleep apnea is often the cause of weight gain in the first place. 

Sleep Apnea Support

We understand that seeking clear sleep apnea solutions can be misleading, stunt your journey to better health and can be quite costly. To put a stop to your struggle, you deserve effective, affordable and proactive support from Mount Prospect dentist Dr. Tom Meyer at Meyer Dental Group. 

  • Dr. Meyer has 30+ years of robust dental experience, including sleep apnea treatment
  • He is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM)
  • Is certified by the AADSM to create custom-fitted oral appliances to treat sleep apnea
