Sleep Apnea Treatment
What is Sleep Apnea Treatment?
Sleep apnea is a condition that can seriously affect every aspect of your life. The condition is marked by constant cessations in your breathing while you sleep. This is caused by the soft tissue of the throat relaxing enough to cover the upper airway. We offer a simple device that you can wear each night that opens this airway, making it easier for you to breathe.
Why is Sleep Apnea Treatment needed?
The reason you may need sleep apnea treatment is because the condition can affect your life in a negative way. You might be too tired and exhausted to function throughout the day. This can have an impact on your relationships and your career. Treatment can help you to breathe easier each night, which can help you to function properly when you’re awake.
Who is a candidate for Sleep Apnea Treatment?
To determine if you’d need sleep apnea treatment, we will review your health and medical history. We’ll then conduct an examination and ask you about your symptoms. Most often, people who have sleep apnea will experience loud, disruptive snoring at night as well as lethargy and tiredness throughout the day. Wearing an oral device is best suited for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea.
What happens during Sleep Apnea Treatment?
We will first take impressions of your teeth and mouth. These molds are used to craft a brand new device that you’ll wear. You’ll come into the office to have the device fitted and adjusted to your comfort. You will need to wear the device every night in order for it to actually work at treating your sleep apnea. The device can be replaced as it begins to show signs of wear or damage. You will be amazed at how different you feel each day after properly treating your sleep apnea. You’ll snore less each night and have more energy throughout the day.
