Sleep Apnea Treatment
What is Sleep Apnea Treatment?
Sleep apnea is a common sleep-related disorder that affects a person’s breathing throughout the night. The disorder is marked by short and constant cessations in breathing while sleeping as well as loud, disruptive snoring. We offer a simple device that you’ll wear that opens your upper airway. This device is easy to wear and works effectively to put an end to sleep apnea symptoms.
Why is Sleep Apnea Treatment needed?
Sleep apnea has been linked to a wide variety of medical conditions, such as type two diabetes and heart disease. What’s more, it leaves you feeling exhausted throughout the day, despite thinking that you’re sleeping for eight or more hours. You may feel that you don’t have the energy to spend time with your family, friends or even go to work. Treatment is an easy way to get past these symptoms and take back control of your life.
Who is a good candidate for Sleep Apnea Treatment?
Treatment using a sleep apnea oral device is best suited for patients who have mild to moderate sleep apnea. We will talk to you about your symptoms and any sleep study information you have from your past. We will perform an exam to determine if this specific type of treatment is right for you. Most people who want this type of device can easily benefit from coming in to have it made.
What happens during Sleep Apnea Treatment?
We will take impressions of your teeth and mouth. These molds help us to create a device that is made just for you. The next step is for us to fit you with the device and instruct you on how to wear it. The device should fit comfortably, and it works by opening the upper airway and making it easier for you to breathe. We can replace your sleep apnea device as it shows signs of wear. In order for the device to work effectively, it is important that you wear it every night before going to bed.
