Obtain the Rest You Need
Do you experience fatigue during the day even though you sleep through the night? Have you ever been told you snore loudly? If so, you may suffer from sleep apnea. Fortunately, we offer treatment to help address sleep apnea so you can sleep soundly again.
Sleep Apnea Details
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that occurs when the throat muscles that support the soft tissues surrounding airways become overly-relaxed. This may begin with partial relaxation, which results in loud snoring. However, when the muscles completely relax, the tissues in your throat collapse against one another. During this sleep apnea event, you stop breathing until your brain recognizing that require oxygen intake. You will wake suddenly, gasping for air. Events may occur several times a night. Many patients do not remember sleep apnea events because they happen so quickly.
Sleep Apnea Treatment Benefits
To effectively treat your sleep apnea, we will provide you with an oral appliance similar to a sports mouth guard, unlike a bulky, restrictive CPAP mask and machine. You will put it in place before getting into bed. The appliance will realign your jaw to keep airways open while you sleep. This non-invasive, comfortable treatment offers the following benefits:
- You can enjoy a restful night of sleep again
- Your significant other will be able to sleep through the night without constant interruptions
- Treatment will ease daily discomfort associated with common symptoms, like fatigue, moodiness, and headaches
- Medical professionals agree that a good, solid night of sleep is significant for maintaining excellent health – treating your sleep apnea may improve your general well being because untreated sleep apnea makes all other medical conditions worse
