417 Smiles Now Offers Sleep Apnea Evaluations
Sleep apnea impacts the health and well-being of thousands of Missourians, but many don’t even know they’re suffering from it! Now, 417 Smiles is offering sleep apnea evaluations to residents of Springfield and surrounding areas.
If you snore, wake up tired, find yourself sleepy in the middle of the day or unable to focus, you could be suffering from the symptoms of sleep apnea. Or maybe you’ve noticed that your partner stops breathing for long periods of time when they sleep followed by making choking or gasping sounds – these are also signs of sleep apnea.
Those with sleep apnea may see increased incidents of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, chronic tiredness – which can lead to driving and other accidents, depression, irritability, inability to concentrate, links to Alzheimer’s disease, sexual disfunction and more. When patients get treatment, it’s often a night and day difference. Most importantly, patients being treated feel better and report significantly increased quality of life.
Fortunately, getting an evaluation is as easy as visiting your dentist at 417 Smiles! We offer a simple consultation and evaluation process using a questionnaire and considering your medical history. It it seems like you or a loved one is suffering, we connect you with the resources you need to get treatment!
To learn more, visit the sleep apnea page on our website. If you’re ready for an evaluation, call us now at 417-883-2223.

The special includes an exam, pano, polish and x-ray! Available every day at 417 Smiles and 417Smiles.com
