Dr. Bard Levey provides comprehensive dentistry in Croton On Hudson, offering individualized care to help patients enjoy not only a healthy smile, but overall physical well being for the best possible quality of life. He works with patients to diagnose and treat a range of concerns related to dental health, including snoring and sleep disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Dr. Levey is a credentialed dentist with American Sleep Dentistry (ASD). Dr. Levey will coordinate care with your general physician, who will conduct a diagnostic sleep study if necessary to determine if your snoring is a result of OSA. Although there are several risk factors for OSA, it is more prevalent among male patients. As an accredited ASD dentist, Dr. Levey will submit your insurance claim to your health insurance provider or Medicare- you are only responsible for your copay.
OSA can be a serious health issue, especially for those who have existing cardiovascular or systemic disease, such as diabetes. OSA can significantly raise the risk for stroke and heart attack if left untreated. Although there are several risk factors for OSA, it is more prevalent among male patients.
Common Risk Factors for Sleep Apnea:
- Being overweight or obese
- Being a smoker
- Having high blood pressure
