Sleep Therapy Q&A

Who needs sleep therapy?

Everyone experiences the occasional restless night, whether due to jet lag, high stress, or that mid-afternoon cup of coffee, you just couldn’t resist. But it’s important to seek professional help when sleep issues persist over time. 

It is difficult to overstate the potential harm that comes when your body and mind don’t get enough rest. Research shows that people who are sleep-deprived face a higher-than-average risk of numerous chronic diseases, as well as loss of mental clarity and increased irritability. 

Sleep therapy is a great option for people who suffer from these conditions:

  • Insomnia
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Central sleep apnea
  • Depression 
  • Anxiety
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Narcolepsy

Sleep therapy is also helpful for people who’ve developed sleep problems due to elevated stress levels, a new baby, or a job-related change in sleep schedules.

What are the benefits of sleep therapy?

Sleep therapy is a highly personalized process. Your practitioner works closely with you to identify the source of your sleep disruption and create a customized sleep therapy treatment plan. 

Some of the ways sleep therapy can improve your life include:

  • Creating a long-term solution or improvement for certain mental health conditions
  • Reducing your reliance on medication and potentially avoiding addiction
  • Training you to avoid unhealthy thoughts about your sleep challenges
  • Helping you understand the causes of sleep disruption and make lifelong improvements

Working with a sleep therapy specialist for just a short period of time can yield lasting results.

What are some sleep therapy techniques?

Your practitioner creates a treatment plan designed just for you. Some of the techniques that might be part of the process include:

Sleep environment optimization

Making changes to your sleep environment can go a long way toward helping you get optimal rest. Lighting, bedding, limiting caffeine, and bedroom temperature are all examples. 

Stimulus control

Taking steps to avoid using electronic devices, watching TV, or scrolling through your phone can help your body and brain begin to relax and prepare for rest. In most cases, setting a concrete time to put aside all devices is the best approach. 

Sleep hygiene

Changing your habits during the day can help you rest better at night. Examples include quitting smoking, getting plenty of exercise, and eating healthier.

In addition to sleep therapy, Frisco Dental Implant Center offers various treatments to help you rest easy. Call the office to schedule an initial visit, or book online.
