How Are Your Sleeping? Take Our Sleep Quiz

Sleep problems are probably one of the hardest things for us to self-diagnose. Even if you’re a trained professional, it’s next to impossible to realize what’s going on while you sleep. That’s why we have to look at other areas, not just how we are sleeping. Our office has deviced a short test for you to take. It covers a number of issues relating to sleep apnea and sleep problems.

You’ll notice that a lot of the test has nothing to do with your sleeping patterns. That’s because problems like sleep apnea can affect your entire body and mental health.

Here’s our Quiz:

1. Do have trouble falling asleep?
Yes
No

2. Do you wake up at night gasping for air?
Yes
No

3. Do you feel tired or fatigued throughout the day?
Yes
No

4. Have you fallen asleep at work or during the day?
Yes
No

5. Do you wake up still tired after a full night’s rest?
Yes
No

6. You wake up with your heart pounding or notice irregular beating?
Yes
No

7. Do you have trouble concentrating at work or throughout the day?
Yes
No

8. Do you suffer from high blood pressure?
Yes
No

9. Are you overweight?
Yes
No

10. You have been told that you’re a restless sleeper
Yes
No

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might want to consider visiting our office or finding a certified sleep therapist. Most of the issues mentioned in the above quiz are common signs of sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea is a disease that affects millions of people across our country. It’s also been linked to serious illnesses like stroke or heart disease. The most common form of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea. Patients who suffer from this form of sleep apnea have an obstructed airway and can stop breathing hundreds of times a night.

No one is immune to sleep apnea. The problem can affect anyone at any age, but males are more likely to be diagnosed with sleep apnea. Some common risk factors of sleep apnea include:

• Being older than 40 years old
• Having a neck size larger than 17 inches if you’re a males and 16 inches if you’re a female
• Having family history of sleep apnea
• Being overweight
• Having enlarged tonsils or a larger tongue

Resolving Sleep Apnea Issues

So how do we resolve sleep apnea issues? Well, years ago we would have suggested a sleep test with a physician who would have likely required you to wear a CPAP machine. A CPAP machine is a device that constantly pushes air into your airway. The biggest problem with the CPAP machine is that it’s cumbersome and sometimes disruptive to bed partners. Studies have also found that CPAP machines have just a 50 percent compliance rate. That’s dangerous, considering the life-threatening problems that have been associated with sleep apnea.

At our office has spent years studying advanced technology and finding alternatives to uncomfortable CPAP machines. We’ve found that many patients can resolve their sleep apnea issues with a comfortable oral appliance. We take an impression of your teeth and then fashion an appliance that fits on your lower teeth. The device pushes your lower jaw forward, allowing the airways to remain open. For patients with serious forms of sleep apnea, we recommend that the oral appliance be used in conjunction with a CPAP machine.

Our patients who use the oral appliance report having reduced symptoms just one or two days after trying the appliance. If you’ve been told you snore loud enough to wake the dead or have any of these sleep apnea symptoms, contact our office today.

Patient Reviews:

I started my Invisalign treatment with Dr. Jeal in February this year. I got my retainer in October. The whole treatment is very efficient and effective. It only takes 8 months to get to the result I want which is very impressive. Dr. Jeal and the staff are super patient. The plan also includes a lot of additional treatments such as teeth cleaning and whitening. I do recommend to get your Invisalign treatment here as the price is reasonable and you get really good service.

I have been seeing Dr.Jeal and his team @ Winnipeg Square Dental for approx 2 years. I am a real person with a real job and real life around me. The team at WSD really did change my life. Not only do they operate with honesty and integrity, they also make you feel like you are definately at the right place. They treat me like they remember my name, because they actually do. Every quote I have recieved (3 so far) has turned into a much smaller bill as they will only do what's nescassary. The smile I got from these folks is much more than I could ever have hoped. I would recommend Winnipeg Square Dental to everyone I know, they will not dissapoint. Truly great people, Thank you WSD :)

I first reached out to Winnipeg Square Dental years ago about the Invisalign treatment. I was hesitant and unsure due to the commitment and finances it required. Charlene was someone I was in regular contact in. There was never any pressure - in fact, I never felt judged, I felt taken care of and understood with my apprehensions. I am actually now finished my Invisalign journey, and the results are this beautiful smile I have always dreamed about having. The results are priceless. I cannot even begin how good it feels to smile! I had always been insecure to smile with my teeth - making it a habit to cover my mouth whenever I smiled. I deeply appreciate and feel so much gratitude to the team at Winnipeg Square Dental Centre, to Alyssa and Dr. Jeal. Especially to my favourite human being, Charlene. Thanks for being the awesome individuals you all are.

I Love Winnipeg Square Dental. All Staff are so accommodating, friendly, genuinely care about all of there patients. I was extremely self conscious about my smile and wasn't sure what direction to go in. Invisalign was recommended and the process to get me started was amazing. I'm half way through my Invisalign treatment and i'm having an amazing experience thanks to Dr Jeal and his assistant. Can't wait for the final product. I would highly recommend this dental office as they treat you like their own! my experience thus far as been amazing. Thank you to all the staff at Winnipeg Dental square centre.
