Sleep Apnea Therapy
The Care You Need for Healthy Rest
Deep, restorative sleep is important to your overall well-being: mind, body, and spirit. If you snore, chances are you're not getting the quality of sleep you need to be your best each day. If you're tired when you wake in the morning, can fall asleep during the day, experience mood swings or difficulty concentrating, you may be suffering from sleep apnea.
Sleep Apnea, an Under Diagnosed Problem
More than 12 million Americans are thought to suffer from sleep apnea, a sleep disorder where the affected individual stops breathing for a few seconds while sleeping. When breathing stops, the brain signals the sleeper to wake and they will either move into a lighter stage of sleep or wake completely. When sleep apnea sufferers fall back to sleep, the cycle begins again, occurring hundreds of times a night. Sleep apnea is a condition that carries very serious risks, including heart attack, stroke, memory loss, and even premature death. Highly under-diagnosed, sleep apnea goes untreated in thousands of cases. If you have been told that you snore or if a loved one snores, we urge you to visit your dentist at Oak Park Dental to discuss sleep apnea diagnosis and therapy.
Sleep Apnea Therapy – from My Dentist?
Sleep apnea is most often caused by blocked airways. Such things as the size and shape of air passages, swelling of passageways, and even the position of the tongue can contribute to airway blockage. In many cases the blocked airway is corrected by wearing a comfortable dental appliance that repositions the tongue or lower jaw, alleviating sleep apnea symptoms and allowing a restful sleep.
