Sleep apnea affects millions of people worldwide and can have a serious impact on your quality of life. Most often, being overweight, obese or having other respiratory issues can increase your chances of developing sleep apnea. The condition is caused by the soft tissues at the very back of the throat relaxing and covering the airway. This results in loud snoring and cessations in your breathing throughout the night, which causes you to continually wake up to catch your breath. We offer a simple oral device appliance that opens the airway, eliminating sleep apnea symptoms.
Sleep apnea is a medical condition that can seriously impact your way of life. Because you're not sleeping properly, you'll find that you are too exhausted to do anything throughout the day. You may even find yourself falling asleep on the job or when trying to spend time with your loved ones. The loud snoring at night can even be disruptive to your loved ones, causing them to stay awake as well.
Patients with more mild sleep apnea symptoms can often benefit from the oral device that we make for them in the office. This device works by opening the airway, which makes it easier for you to breathe while you sleep. We will go over your health and medical history to ensure that treatment is right for you. If you have sleep apnea, it is important to consider treatment to improve your quality of life.
We will take impressions of your mouth and teeth. These molds are then used to make the appliance that you'll wear. You will come into the office to have the appliance fitted and adjusted as needed. You should wear the device each night in order for it to work effectively at treating your sleep apnea. We can then replace the device as it begins to wear or become damaged. Sleep apnea patients find that these oral devices are incredibly comfortable and highly effective at treating the condition.
