Is Poor Sleep, Snoring, or Obstructive Sleep Apnea Affecting Your Life?

Over 30 million Americans suffer from Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), but 80% are undiagnosed. Sleep apnea can cause you to stop breathing hundreds of times a night for anywhere from a few seconds to more than a minute. Sleep apnea is a chronic condition that occurs when your muscles relax during sleep, allowing soft tissue to collapse and block the airway.

Oral appliances are available to help treat OSA. An appliance is custom-fit and is worn only at night. It’s effective in preventing your airway from collapsing by keeping your jaw in a forward position. Talk to us about this option, especially if you have trouble with CPAP or just looking for a CPAP alternative.

If left untreated, OSA can lead to a number of serious health conditions, including

  • High Blood Pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Acid reflux
  • Disruptive Snoring
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Daytime Sleepiness
  • Depression
  • Memory Loss
  • Morning Headaches
  • Driving and Workplace Accidents
  • Stroke

It is recommended you see a dentist who is qualified in dental sleep medicine. They will assess and determine if you’re a good candidate for treatment and also which sleep apnea appliance option is right for you.
