Sleeping Will Never Seem So Easy
Introducing Georgetown Smile’s latest favorite appliance/service we provide - Silent Nite® Sleep Appliance and TAP®3 TL
As we begin the new year - we like to reflect on what parts of our life and routines need to be changed and improved. Most might overlook the most important aspect of our daily routines - which is our sleep. According to cpapsupplies.com, “50-70 million US adults have a sleep disorder, and obstructive sleep apnea is one of the most prevalent sleep disorders.”
We have experienced clients coming into the office expressing how exhausted they are from their sleep apnea, along with frustrating clenching and grinding. These experiences can easily ruin your day, weeks, or month if not treated with the right attention.
Dr. Peretz, DDS, at Georgetown Smile, sat down with a few of his clients this year during the resolution season to share a game changing solution to relieve the exhaustion, grogginess, and lack of energy.
