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:

These questionnaires can be completed in privacy and brought to your appointment or dental checkup. Call Newman Springs Dental Care today at 732-352-3903, or schedule an appointment online.

Common Questions About Sleep Apnea

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea occurs when you repeatedly stop breathing while sleeping. It is caused by your air passages becoming blocked by your tongue and other soft tissues in the rear of your throat. When they block your airway, you stop breathing for a few seconds before waking up briefly to take in more air. The sleep apnea cycle can repeat itself hundreds of times per night in severe sleep apnea sufferers.

Why is sleep apnea bad?

Sleep apnea is harmful because it blocks your oxygen supply while you’re sleeping. This interferes with your sleep and leaves you feeling weak and tired the next day. Sleep apnea has also been linked to serious health concerns like heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, diabetes, and depression. Getting sleep apnea treatment can improve your quality of life as well as your life expectancy.

How is sleep apnea treated?

CPAP therapy is often the first recommended treatment for sleep apnea. While CPAP is effective, many people have trouble getting used to having air blown through their mouth and nose. A good alternative is a custom-fit sleep appliance. It will fit comfortably in your mouth while you sleep, gently moving your lower jaw forward to keep your air passages open.

How does sleep apnea affect the body?

Besides disrupting your sleep patterns and leaving you exhausted during the day, sleep apnea has been linked to several major health concerns. Sleep apnea contributes to heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, heart failure, diabetes, and depression. Getting help for sleep apnea now can improve your health and potentially help you live longer.
