In Post Falls, ID, the sleep apnea specialist is Dr. Whitney M Frank, specializing in snoring and sleep apnea solutions for a better night’s sleep and improved overall health.
Living with sleep apnea is not easy, for the patient or for their partner. That’s why it can be comforting to learn for the first time that you don’t have to live with it permanently. There’s a cure for the condition. Sleep apnea causes the tissues around the throat and the breathing airway to collapse, restricting air intake and disrupting sleep due to the body’s attempt at gaining adequate breath.
Lack of sleep, inadequate time in each of the important sleep stages and low oxygen levels during sleep all combine to cause a chain of symptoms that can put you at a much higher risk for conditions such as heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure and obesity.
If you’re dealing with sleep apnea, you’ll be happy to hear that Dr. Frank can help answer all of your questions about your symptoms and guide you on the path toward diagnosis and treatment. Many of Dr. Frank’s patients in Post Falls suffer with sleep apnea. If you snore, gasp for air during sleep or want an alternative to your CPAP, you may be able to be treated with an oral appliance, or ‘mouthpiece’, similar to a mouthguard.
A mouthpiece works by shifting the lower jaw forward which prevents the tissues and the tongue from collapsing the airway and restricting air flow. It’s a small, lightweight, custom-made appliance that is much less cumbersome than a CPAP. With the help of an oral appliance, you and your sleeping partner can rest peacefully and quietly again.
When you call Dr. Frank’s office at 208-773-1559, you can speak with someone who will answer all of your questions and set up an appointment for you to see Dr. Frank. You can also visit the Whitney M Frank DDS website at wfrankdds.com to learn more about sleep apnea and how you may be an ideal candidate for an oral appliance that will eliminate your dependency on a CPAP machine while solving your snoring and sleep problems for good.

You need to see a professional who can provide an accurate diagnosis and help you get the great night’s rest you’ve been missing. Visit Dr. Frank in Post Falls and take control of your sleep apnea.
