Sleep Apnea Treatment in Schaumburg, Illinois

Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Elk Grove Village IL

There’s no question that snoring is often joked about as an annoying, subconscious habit. While snoring is often dismissed as harmless, it can sometimes indicate a more serious condition – sleep apnea. At Brian Homann, DDS, our practice in Schaumburg, Illinois, understands that sleep apnea is not just about disruptive snoring; it can pose genuine risks to your health. We are dedicated to providing expert sleep apnea treatments tailored to the unique needs of our clients.

Understanding The Basics Of Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that causes breathing interruptions during sleep. These can last for a few seconds at a time and up to several minutes in other instances. Episodes of sleep apnea may happen multiple times throughout the night. The two common types of sleep apnea include obstructive and central sleep apnea.

Sleep Apnea Treatment in Schaumburg

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA): This is the more common type. It occurs when the throat muscles relax too much, leading to a blockage.
  • Central Sleep Apnea (CSA): Less common, this type involves a failure of the brain to send proper signals to the muscles controlling breathing.

At Brian Homann, DDS, we can work with a team of physicians to help treat OSA, ensuring our clients enjoy uninterrupted, restful sleep.

What Causes Someone To Develop Sleep Apnea

Understanding what causes sleep apnea is essential for effective treatment. Common factors include:

  • Excess Weight: Being overweight or obese raises the risk due to fatty deposits around the jawline, chin, and neck.
  • Neck Circumference: A thicker neck can mean a narrower airway, increasing the risk of obstruction.
  • Family History: Genetics can contribute to the likelihood of developing sleep apnea.
  • Gender: Men are more prone, but the risk increases for overweight women and during pregnancy.
  • Smoking: Smokers face a higher risk compared to non-smokers.

At Brian Homann, DDS, we focus on uncovering the root causes of sleep apnea, and tailoring treatments for each individual to promote better sleep and overall health.

Dr. Homan is the best dentist I've ever been to. Most of my co-workers go to Dr. Homan and that's how I heard about him.

I needed a lot of work on my teeth and I'm so glad I found such a great dentist. He explains everything to you and also is very upfront on all posibiltys that's can happen to the tooth he works on and also explains what you can expect after the dental work. He's also very friendly and everyone at the office makes you feel comfortable. Karen and Sandra in the front office are wonderful as well. They also have wonderful dental hygienist. My insurance is not in network with Dr. Homan but it's well worth the extra money to still go to the best!

Dr. Homann's practice is very clean and up to date. His practice also has televisions to watch when you are getting your teeth cleaned or any other work done which is awesome!

The chairs are very comfortable and the staff is very polite. Dr. Homann is also a very knowledgeable dentist with the ability to make every patient feel calm and comfortable no matter what the situation. He also has done volunteer work for the homeless donating his time and resources to help the less fortunate, if that doesn't let you know what kind of practice this is I don't know what will. I will definitely be coming back here again!
