You might have a pretty strong instinct that you are someone who will most definitely benefit from sleep apnea treatment. However, even if your intuition is pointing you in a particular direction, that doesn’t mean that all sorts of rationalizing and excuse making isn’t going to stand in the way of you coming in for a consultation and checkup. While we understand it can be a bit difficult to learn you’re dealing with a sleep disorder, it’s definitely time to skip the excuses and receive the care you really do need. Find out why!
#1: “It’s Too Expensive”
At first, you may be thinking only of your dental checkup and the cost of sleep apnea treatment (which will simply include an oral appliance). What you might overlook is the cost of what may occur if you avoid the treatment: Cardiac problems, liver problems, and other issues that will result in much costlier treatments and care over the years. Choose the oral appliance instead!
#2: “I Don’t Want To Know I Have It”
You may have just realized that it’s certainly to your advantage to receive a diagnosis rather than avoid learning about it. When your sleep apnea treatment never begins and instead, you let the disorder continue, you’re placing your life at risk.
#3: “The Diagnosis Could Be Wrong!”
You may wonder how we can possibly have a simple discussion with you and then decide you must require sleep apnea treatment. It’s not exactly this simple. While an oral appliance will never hurt (it’s also beneficial for snoring on its own), you will receive a proper diagnosis from the help of a sleep study.
