Sleep Apnea Treatment
What is Sleep Apnea Treatment?
Sleep apnea is an incredibly common condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It is caused by the muscles of the throat relaxing and closing on itself when a person sleeps throughout the night. This can result in constant waking while you’re asleep as well as loud, disruptive snoring. We offer a sleep apnea treatment that involves a safe, comfortable and effective oral appliance that opens the airway.
Why might Sleep Apnea Treatment be needed?
If you fail to treat your sleep apnea, it can and will eventually affect the quality of your life. You might be too tired throughout the day to function, which can get in the way of your career and relationships. You might even find that the loud snoring keeps your whole family awake each and every night. Treatment is quick and easy, so there is no reason to continue living life exhausted.
Who is a candidate for Sleep Apnea Treatment?
Patients who have mild to moderate sleep apnea can benefit from treatment. If you have severe sleep apnea and other medical conditions, you might be best working with your doctor to find an alternative treatment option. We will go over your health and medical history to determine if our treatment option is the best choice for you. Patients who treat their sleep apnea will find that they are able to rest easier at night and feel more energetic throughout the day.
What happens during the Sleep Apnea Treatment process?
We first take impressions of your teeth, mouth and gums. These molds are then used to make the oral appliance that you will wear. The appliance is fitted to feel as comfortable as possible and you’ll be instructed on how to wear it. In order for it to work effectively, you must wear the device every single night. The appliance should last for many years before replacement is needed. If you suspect that you have sleep apnea or have recently undergone a sleep study, we welcome you to try this particular option.
