Treat Your Sleep Apnea With a Simple Oral Appliance

Stats Image Up to 18 million people in the U.S. have sleep apnea, with up to 4 million suffering from severe sleep apnea. Source.
If you are struggling with sleep apnea, that is not something to take lightly. This condition can have serious long-term effects on your overall health. It puts you at risk for more serious issues such as diabetes and heart attacks. Your oral health is  at risk too. People who have obstructive sleep apnea also tend to grind their teeth and struggle with dry mouth.

Luckily, we can help. When you come in during your appointment, we will:

  • Discuss the symptoms you are experiencing and do a thorough examination
  • Give you an at-home sleep test if you show signs of apnea
  • Review the results of your test and our examination with a sleep specialist
  • Create a custom-made oral appliance that will keep your airways open while you sleep
  • Have you return for progress updates to confirm everything is going smoothly

While there are other treatment methods for sleep apnea, an oral appliance is the easiest and most convenient way to treat this health problem. A custom-made oral appliance gently shifts your lower jaw forward while you sleep. This means your throat won’t close during the night, and you will sleep through the night with ease. Unlike a CPAP machine, there is no mask, noise, or tubing. Both you and your bed partner will find it less distracting than a CPAP.

Call 805-800-8289 for an appointment with our expert team today. You can also schedule online. Saturday visits are available upon request.

Common Questions About Sleep Apnea

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is the periodic blockage of your airway during sleep. Your tongue and other soft tissues in the back of your throat relax to the point where they block your airway, usually without any awareness that this is happening. This causes you to stop breathing momentarily before waking up just long enough to take a few normal breaths.

How does sleep apnea affect the body?

Besides disrupting your sleep patterns and leaving you exhausted during the day, sleep apnea has been linked to several major health concerns. Sleep apnea contributes to heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, heart failure, diabetes, and depression. Getting help for sleep apnea now can improve your health and potentially help you live longer.

Will sleep apnea go away?

Sleep apnea usually will not go away on its own. That’s why we offer sleep apnea treatment in our dental practice. Without treatment, you’ll continue to experience sleep apnea symptoms, and you won’t get the high-quality sleep you need. We can help with this problem by providing you with a custom-fit oral appliance to help keep your airway open.

How is sleep apnea treated?

If you receive a sleep apnea diagnosis, our practice will take impressions and have a custom-fit sleep apnea appliance made for you to wear while sleeping. It will gently move your lower jaw forward to help keep your airway open. It can even reduce snoring. You’ll sleep better, feel better, and improve your overall health.
