What is Sleep Apnea?
The type of sleep apnea that certain dentists are capable of treating is called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA occurs when a patient is unable to breathe properly during sleep because of a blockage in their airway. Due to this lack of oxygen, the brain is forced to awaken the patient so that they can start breathing once more. While these awakenings are brief and may not even be remembered in the morning, they can happen constantly throughout the night. As a result, the patient is unable to achieve deep sleep and experiences chronic exhaustion, painful morning headaches, and other unpleasant symptoms that hurt their overall quality of life.
If you have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, it is time to talk to our doctors about trying oral appliance therapy. These custom-made mouthpieces are lightweight, simple to use, and easy to travel with. When worn, they work to gently reposition your jaw so that airway blockage no longer occurs and you can rest peacefully throughout the night.
