Sleep Better With Our Oral Appliance Treatment
Obstructive sleep apnea can do more than just make you exhausted during the day. Untreated sleep apnea has been linked to serious health concerns like high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and depression. The good news is that our team can fit you with an oral appliance that can reduce or eliminate your symptoms. Your appliance will:
- Rest comfortably in your mouth and keep your airway open while you sleep, helping you get the quality rest you need to function during your day.
- Reduce your snoring, so you and your bed partner both can rest easy.
- Avoid the use of a noisy, cumbersome CPAP machine. We’ll need to work with your primary care physician to determine if eliminating CPAP is the best choice for you.
You can consider giving up your CPAP if:
- It is not sufficient to ease your symptoms
- You are unable to wear a CPAP
- Your diagnosis is mild enough to be treated with only an oral appliance
Don’t Ignore the Signs of This Sleep Disorder
We often hear patients ask us, “What is sleep apnea?” and “What are sleep apnea causes?” Basically, it is due to your airway becoming obstructed during sleep. Here’s how it happens:
- When your tongue and other soft tissues in the back of your throat relax as you sleep, they can drop back so much your air supply is cut off.
- Once your airway becomes blocked, you’ll wake up long enough (often with a loud snort) to take in a few normal breaths. Then you’ll fall back to sleep until the next episode of sleep apnea occurs.
- For severe sleep apnea sufferers, this cycle can repeat itself hundreds of times per night.
If you think you, your partner, or your child have sleep apnea, it’s important to get the help you need sooner rather than later. Please check out the following resources:
