SLEEP APNEA APPLIANCES
At Dental Care Today of Richardson, we offer treatment for sleep apnea using a comfortable, custom made oral appliance. Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that occurs when patients cease to breathe for ten or more seconds at a time. Patients with sleep apnea can experience this breathing cessation hundreds of times every night. Custom sleep apnea appliances shift the jaw forward. This places pressure on throat muscles, holding the airway open. This is the same basic premise used in CPR training when the head is tilted back to open the airway. With an apnea appliance in place during sleep, patients are able to breathe in and out without obstruction, sleeping soundly and waking feeling completely rested. Unlike the CPAP systems traditionally used to treat sleep apnea, oral appliances are comfortable, portable, and convenient. Don’t hesitate to contact our team to find out more about sleep apnea therapies today. This is especially important if you experience any combination of the following symptoms:
- Loud, chronic snoring
- Waking feeling tired
- Waking out of breath or gasping
- Waking with a headache
- Difficulty concentrating or memory loss
