Sleep Apnea Dentist

SNORING & OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA IS QUITE COMMON

While you sleep, an apnea occurs when breathing stops for ten seconds or more, placing significant strain on your cardio-vascular system and heart. These disturbances during sleep prevent air from reaching your lungs.

Treatment Options For Snoring & Obstructive Sleep Apnea may include Oral Appliance Therapy, surgery as a last resort, or a bulky CPAP medical unit that sits beside you during sleep, delivering continuous positive air pressure through a facemask or nasal tube attached to a pump. The CPAP requires a lifetime commitment and proper adjustment to achieve maximum clinical benefits and minimal side effects. Oral Appliance Therapy is a device specially designed to reposition the jaw and tongue forward during sleep, thus expanding the airway for easier flow. It is a much safer and easier method of treating Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
